Your future starts here
At London College of Communication, our dynamic community of staff, students and graduates discover new possibilities in creative communications.
We support our students to explore the power of storytelling, develop a career they love, and to make a difference across wider society.
Taught by experienced practitioners, they create work that challenges and inspires in ways that generate responsible and imaginative futures, and have opportunities to showcase their projects through events and exhibitions. As graduates, they go on to shape the creative industries by forging their own paths in thoughtful and experimental ways.
We use the diversity of our skills, voices and experiences to work closely with local communities and transform the world around us, and have strong industry networks that enable us to collaborate with organisations ranging from start-ups and charities to leading global businesses.

Collaborating with industry
Our Business, Partnerships and Knowledge Exchange team connect our expertise to industry needs, working with organisations to create bespoke partnerships, solve big challenges, and develop innovative services and experiences through collaborative projects.
Throughout their time at LCC, our students can take part in opportunities ranging from working on live briefs to undertaking placements through initiatives such as Talent Works and our Diploma in Professional Studies (DPS).
Our Industry Mentoring Programme matches students with professionals from the creative industries who can offer vital advice, connections and guidance to help kick-start their careers.
We also support students to develop the confidence and skills needed to shape their futures as creators through our Graduate Residency, which enables the rapid development of projects which have the potential for significant social or economic impact.
