Hi, so I had my interview last week for MA Sculpture. It was short, only 15 mins. They had my portfolio open on the screen and asked quite standard questions like why I want to do the MA (within that I answered why it's the right time in my career, and expanded on some things I've done since my BA; why I want to specifically do sculpture, and why I chose the RCA over other schools). They asked me to talk about one particular work from my portfolio, then asked me about influences, political/philosophical ideas surrounding my practice.

They were very stony-faced, not giving any emotion away, so I honestly couldn't tell how well it went. I hadn't heard after a week, so I just dropped an email to the course admin to ask how long I'd wait (last year my friend waited 10 weeks to hear because there was a huge delay in the registry), and I heard back the next day with my offer letter!

One main thing I've been told from everyone I've asked about interview tips: Just be honest. They don't want you to try to be anyone apart from you. If you can be constructively self-critical, I think they will warm to you because it displays a self-awareness which is obv important for any fine art discipline and will reflect the way you need to be addressing problems in your work in studio crits.

Sorry this isn't entirely relevant, but I too would like to connect with people studying at White City! I've been offered a place on the Animation course. I really liked the campus, and they have an ethos in the studio where you share one huge room, so you are sat amongst people from other courses. and through that everyone can learn a lot from each other.

I hope your application goes well!

Thanks!! Did you feel as though it was a bit isolated at white city or did it seem like students went to the Kensington campus frequently and were part of all the projects and activities going on there?

It didn't feel particularly 'isolated'. They are not a bad location for the courses they offer, being in a media-centered part of london. I did ask specifically in my interview about cross campus opportunities as a student because I get what you mean, you do kind of want to be a part of all of the things floating about at the RCA as a whole. I came from Fine Art, so I think those ideas are still really important and would love to attend lectures and so on around artistic thinking and practice, and not just media-focused things. Anyway, the answer when I asked was that, from the RCA's perspective, it is highly encouraged to attend events and lectures and so on regardless of campus, and they do have a huge ethos of cross pollination of ideas and experiences. Events happen all the time, and my interviewer said there is 'no shortage' of things to get involved with, and that you wouldn't sleep if you attended everything they had to offer, which sounds promising. It was really hard to gauge how much that actually happened though. I guess it depends on how much each student is interested in journeying to the other campuses. Sadly I didn't ask any students about that aspect, but it sounds like the opportunity is there if you want to take it.
