The Schools stages two major exhibitions in each academic year. During the second year of study, work is prepared for exhibition in the annual Premiums exhibition. This interim show takes place at the midway point of the course, and is an opportunity to exhibit in the context of a museum environment.
The culmination of the three-year programme is the Royal Academy Schools Show which takes place in June at the end of the Summer term. The exhibition is presented in the Schools studios which are transformed to allow each student an individual space to install and exhibit their work. The Schools Show continues to attract a diverse audience including artists, critics, collectors and gallerists.
Postgraduate certificates are awarded by the Keeper and the President of the Royal Academy at the Diploma Ceremony, held in the Royal Academy of Arts, followed by an informal gathering of the invited guests and the teaching staff. A special celebratory dinner is also held at the end of the Schools Show, and always proves to be a memorable occasion.
