International Courses & Exchanges

We offer courses specifically for international students, to help them progress onto undergraduate or postgraduate study at LCF. We also run Erasmus exchanges, open to all students and staff.

LCF's expertise enables us to offer tailored fashion preparation courses to support further specialised study. We are committed to selecting, teaching and developing our international students. Our preparation courses focus on an experimental and analytical approach and will develop a critical and open-minded view. This way of thinking has been central to some of the most unique and highly employable graduates in the world.

International application and selection

LCF's international team offer advice and an admissions service to students from outside the UK.

Our international academics are available throughout the year to advise students on their choice of course(s) and interview applicants who have chosen to study at the College. They are focused on finding the most suitable course for each student. This is based on a diagnostic approach. With a good knowledge of international education, they are able to respond to the aspirations and needs of our international students. They also have experience in fashion education across a variety of levels.

LCF's International service offer a range of supporting activities in London and abroad. Our academic staff travel the world to attend exhibitions, deliver workshops and give presentations, lectures and seminars. So prospective students can meet academics, find out about studying at UAL and discuss applications in person. Students can apply through one of our official representatives and may have a face-to-face interview with academic staff. Students who apply directly, will have an interview in London or by telephone from London.
