The LCC Graduate School encourages all postgraduate students at the College to develop their own ideas for exhibitions, events and activities that bring together the postgraduate community.

Postgraduate students at the College can apply for up to £300 through the LCC Graduate School Student Fund. We are particularly interested in activities that cross college and discipline.  

Who can apply? 

All postgraduate students at LCC can apply for the Graduate School Fund. We welcome applications that will bring together different courses across the College and the wider UAL community. 

What can a Graduate School Fund Project be?

Projects might take the form of a talk, conference, symposium, group trip, exhibition, workshop, and publication. We particularly encourage activities, exhibitions and events that bring together the postgraduate community at LCC and/or address particular challenges for postgraduate students.

What can be funded?  

Event related costs, including hospitality, event or exhibition materials, speaker fees, promotional materials, student ambassadors, travel, printing costs.  

What can’t be funded?  

Costs related to curriculum-based activities, for example interim or final show exhibitions.
