What will I learn?

The MSc Global Innovation Design is a joint Master's course between Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art. You receive a double Master's – an MSc from Imperial and an MA from the RCA. It is a unique, transnational initiative which brings together three major centres of design, culture, enterprise and industry: Europe, North America and Asia. The programme is world class design collaboration between six internationally-renowned academic institutions. Each partner brings distinct expertise and complementary approaches to design, engineering, technology and business, with an emphasis on internationally-oriented design and innovation. You are able to work in three Global locations with partner universities following one of two routes. Students on both routes will start their GID experience in London, then travel on to Asia, spending a term in Tokyo or Beijing.
