    Hi,I'm from India and am planning to do the MRes in Communications this Sept. I got my offer letter in March. However I'm having trouble getting my CAS number for the tier 4 visa from the college. They don't seem to respond. Is anyone having similar issues?
    Hi, lots of people are having the same problem as you! The Registry department is VERY behind on their work. I am one of the lucky few that got my CAS (after repeated emailing, and getting my department administrator involved, since I am traveling prior to arrival in the UK and needed my passport ASAP). A member recently posted that he visited the RCA in person and made a fuss, and learned that they are processing CAS numbers for students beginning in September before the ones starting in October, which is good news for you, but also that they were missing some of his documents and didn't even tell him. My recommendation is to contact the Communications department (whoever you were in contact with about your application, interview etc) and see if they can help.

    Thank you so much!!!! I've just been hoping that someone would respond and I'd get some idea of what's happening. And thank you for the suggestion - I'm going to try writing to my department administrator.

    Hi guys!

    I am now in the process of sending my application for MA Photography for the 2018 start but I'd like to have some ideas on what they expect from our personal statement as I've started writing it and I feel super anxious about it!
    Also, if called for an interview, how long is it usually? and which kinda of questions should we expect?

    Thank you for the most helpful insights. I am preparing for my interview currently and while I hope to prepare and manage well for the other answers. How exactly should I prepare for if I'm expected to ask the faculty or the interview board any questions? Could you suggest some sample questions that you had in mind while you were preparing?Thank you!

    Hey congrats! You are the only person I found here who has applied to MA Contemporary art!! Did you join the college? How's it going for you?

    I have an interview on 20th Tuesday, can you please offer me some tips 😄

    Hi everyone, sorry for the silence, the last weeks been mega busy. Had my interview Tuesday, convinced myself I failed it and spent Wednesday convincing myself I didn't actually need or should do a masters in London but then Thursday (yesterday) I got an email offer! Contemporary art practice/moving image pathway. So it's fair to say I'm confused now. Going to take a few days to let it settle in.

    Hi,

    I made an application towards the MPhil/PhD program in the School of Design. The process started with a formal interview in Dec and design test before the final round in Jan and later recieved an offer letter within couple of days. But since i am international applicant the procedure was via a Skype interview towards the end. Now i am looking forward for funding oppurtunities, if any do help.

    Hello all,

    I'm new here and I've applied MPhil/PhD Ceramic. I joined this forum after googling some information for my research proposal. RCA offer me to have an interview in 25th of May but still need to revise my proposal. After read the recent post i think MPhil/PhD path is a little bit different. Anyone here apply for MPhil/PhD?
