London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA) is a specialist institution comprising four schools: Fashion and Design, Photography and Moving Image, Graphics and Multimedia, and Creative Arts Management.
Within these schools, we provide career-focused programmes which thrive to help each and every one of our students gain hands-on experience in their chosen industry, as well as obtaining the relevant theoretical knowledge needed to embark upon a successful career.
Combining practical classes and motivational lectures from industry professionals with traditional classroom learning, students at LCCA gain a valuable insight into the reality of the creative path they have chosen to follow.
Located in the heart of central London, students are never more than a few steps away from artistic inspiration. With galleries, museums and world-famous architecture around every corner, a creative student couldn’t wish for a better city to study in.
Investing in talent
The creative industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK and stands as a constant provider of jobs and growth in the economy. Contributing 6% of the country’s GDP and employing over 2 million people, this industry is forecast to play an even bigger role in years to come. LCCA transforms talented students into passionate graduates who show no fear when it comes to realising their ambitions. Armed with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in such a competitive industry, our graduates are able to step into the working world and pursue their chosen career paths, confident in their abilities to make it to the very top.
Putting theory into practice
We pride ourselves on providing students with a well-balanced educational experience, offering a combination of academic theory and hands-on learning. Lecturers inspire students to acquire sound industry knowledge and progress to apply this within industry work placements. We also place an importance on discussion and reflection in order to develop professionally.
Making ideas reality
We proactively encourage students to explore any creative and entrepreneurial ideas they may have, guiding them through the development process. Introducing students to the people and resources around them often brings opportunity to successfully enter the world of arts and make their visions a reality.
