What is LCF Career Mentoring?

The LCF Career Mentoring scheme offers LCF students the chance to gain professional industry insights as well as feedback and advice on their projects and ideas. It enables students to build confidence in networking and approaching industry, as well as a further understanding of employability skills required for their chosen career path. This scheme is a voluntary programme and offers mentors the opportunity to meet new talent from London College of Fashion and transfer knowledge, expertise and experience to students who will become the future of fashion.

Who is it for?

LCF Career Mentoring is offered to:

  • All current BA and Integrated Masters final year students (year 3) – full time and part time.
  • All current full time MA and Graduate Diploma postgraduate students.
