Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal College of Art MA Scholarship

Fully funded scholarship for Postgraduate Study in the History of Design at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Royal College of Art

The V&A/RCA postgraduate programme, which includes MA, MPhil and PhD in the History of Design, invites applications for The Friends of the V&A Scholarship. The Scholarship covers fees (£ 9,000) for the two years of the MA and includes a maintenance grant (up to £3,000 per year). Students applying from the UK/EU, who hope to work in a public-facing institution, such as a museum or similar, after graduating from the MA are eligible.

The V&A/RCA MA Programme

The V&A/RCA Programme is internationally recognized as the leading centre for postgraduate study in history of design and material culture. Combining ambitious, rigorous and cutting-edge scholarly approaches with a first-hand understanding of objects, the History of Design programme is ideally suited to prepare students for the increasingly diverse and flexible professional portfolio that is demanded today.

The MA is a two year full-time programme. It offers a unique platform for study in three specialist areas:

– Renaissance and Early Modern

– Modern and Contemporary

– Asian, Early Modern to Contemporary

Taught by a dedicated team of academics based in the Research Department of the V&A and the Humanities School of the RCA, the programme has an established reputation for pioneering new forms of design historical enquiry in global contexts, from the fifteenth century to the present day. The system of seminar-based classes, personal tutorials and supervisions provide a unique environment for the study of the aesthetic, social, cultural, technological, economic and political contexts for design.

The programme specialises in object-focused scholarship ranging across the histories of architecture and interior design, fashion and textiles, furniture and product design, ceramics, metalwork, glass, prints, drawings and digital media and social histories of material culture more broadly.

Uniquely, students have direct access to the unrivalled collections and expertise of the V&A and to the highly specialised art and design practices of the RCA. Opportunities to work with curators or to contribute to V&A gallery and exhibition projects are open to all students. Graduates go on to work internationally in universities, museums and galleries, as well as in a host of other related professions such as curating, journalism, media research and design policy. The MA programme also provides also an excellent preparation towards PhD research in a variety of Humanities fields
