The dynamic learning environment at the RIA involves a combination of mixed-year collective discussion and group critiques, individualised work in the studios and workshops, as well as practical and theoretical workshops, courses, seminars, public lectures and study trips. Exhibition making is an integral part of the education; students have the opportunity of exhibiting their work in the gallery of the RIA throughout different stages of their studies.

Students have access to excellent workshops led by highly skilled faculty in a range of fields, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, interactive systems, photography, digital media and video. All students are provided with a studio space for the full duration of their respective programmes.
