The partnership, led by Royal Holloway, also includes the University of Brighton, the University of Roehampton, the Royal College of Art, the University of Surrey and the University of the Arts London. Students' skills and development will be enhanced by placements and collaborations with 13 arts and cultural organisations, including the Barbican, the Natural History Museum, the British Film Institute, the Science Museum and the Museum of London.
The London Doctoral Design Centre (LDOC) is a collaboration between Kingston University, The Royal College of Art, University of the Arts London and industry partners including BT, the British Fashion Council, and the Design Council. It aims to attract high-calibre students to engage in practise-based research. Central to the centre is innovative postgraduate support, including the development of broader skills and working outside academia through industry placements.
