Thursday 3 September - the London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA) announced the launch of new programmes in collaboration with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) for the next autumn intake.

As a result, LCCA will introduce new courses, focusing on areas including Business Management, Fashion, Design, Marketing and more. The scope of the new programmes aims to expand the current academic offer at LCCA, reaching out to a wider audience of potential students.

Dr Kate Armstrong, Head of College at LCCA, said: “Our institution has an established history as an education provider in the creative arts. Whilst we work to strengthen our position, we are also looking forward to the opportunity of growing our academic offer. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with UCA and have them as our partners for the realisation of this next step in our development.

“The creative industries are fast-changing and ever-evolving, with new professions being created every day. This new range of programmes will help more aspiring professionals to find their dream role in this highly competitive sector.”

Simon Macklin, Pro Vice-Chancellor of Portfolio Development and Global Engagement said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with LCCA to deliver an exciting range of courses spanning creative and business disciplines.”

The new programmes will range from one to four years in duration. To ensure that the institution is COVID-19 compliant, LCCA has adopted a blended learning approach and will deliver classes on-campus two days a week, with an online lesson delivered once a week. The first intakes for the new courses are planned for this October and February 2021.
