For creative, innovative and artistic individuals LCCA is the best place to kickstart your career. We offer a range of practical and accredited programmes awarded by University for the Creative Arts (UCA) and the highest placed specialist creative university in The Guardian’s 2021 University League Table. Ranging from fashion to business to graphic design, our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes will help you get industry-ready.

What makes us unique? With a broad network of industry connections, aided by our association with UCA, such as Christian Louboutin, Calvin Klein Jeans and The Photographer’s Gallery, LCCA allows students to get a real feel for working in the creative industries. We provide networking opportunities as well as workshops to help you develop the skills you need to launch your dream creative career and to find opportunities that could lead to employment. You’ll also be able to take advantage of our student support services which include help with CVs, interviews and work placements.

We believe that you learn best by doing which is why our programmes involve a significant amount of practical work. You’ll also participate in lectures, but these will come with ample opportunity to discuss ideas and develop plans for your next project.

To add to this, you’ll be based in Central London at our Tower Hill campus, surrounded by some of the city’s top attractions. Theatres, galleries, museums and restaurants are all within walking distance of the campus, and many of them offer discounts to students. You can find out more about our facilities and  campus here.
