We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in subjects such as journalism, advertising, Public Relations and publishing, photography, film, television and sound, graphic communication, illustration and visual communication, animation, games, design management, branded spaces and interactive and information design.

We contribute to the advancement of these disciplines and the industries and communities we serve by encouraging independent, agile and persistent experimentation.

We are for the curious, the brave and the committed: those who want to transform themselves and the world around them.


Natalie Brett has been Head of College and Pro Vice-Chancellor of University of the Arts London (UAL) since January 2013. She was previously Dean of College at Camberwell College of Arts and has over 20 years’ experience within the Higher Education sector at both a national and international level.


We are developing plans for a cutting-edge new campus across the road from the current College site, which will form part of the wider regeneration of the Elephant and Castle area. The new LCC building is expected to open as early as 2022.


We are energised and empowered by collaboration. LCC students are often commissioned to work on live briefs for major companies such as Nike – graphic design for clothingThe National Trust, and Nokia. Our graduates go on to inform the future of creative communications – our students and alumni include award-winning filmmakers, journalists, broadcasters, designers, and photographers.


The College is also proud to house UAL’s selection of important archives and special collections. From the collection of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick to the work of graphic designer Tom Eckersley, these are invaluable tools for teaching, learning, and research.
