Rishihood is constantly collaborating with like-minded institutions globally to foster education, research and transfer of knowledge for a sustainable future. The nature of these international associations includes faculty exchange, student exchange and student immersion programmes.
Rishihood’s academic collaboration with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA), UK includes avenues for our students to explore various academic pathways. Students can opt to complete graduation tracks like 2+2 (2 years at RU and 2 years at UCA) and 4+1 (Graduation from RU and PG from UCA) or a postgraduate track including 1+1 (1 year at RU and 1 year at UCA).
UCA is ranked #1 as a creative specialist University in the UK and has been educating innovators for 160 years and is home to a unique community of creative people using their skills to make the world a better place.
