As future-facing creatives, we explore and rethink what communication is and why it matters.

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.

Our outstanding facilities are central to student life at LCC, and enable us to learn, research, make and innovate.

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.

Explore life at LCC digitally through our immersive Virtual Open Day.

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.

Our History

  • 1894: One of our founding organisations, St Brides Foundation Institute, is established to provide specialist printing education. Over time, it merges with a number of other schools and colleges to develop its scope across graphic arts.
  • 1954: Artist and designer Tom Eckersley establishes our undergraduate course in graphic design – the very first in Britain. Today, his work can be found in UAL’s Archives and Special Collections Centre, which also holds the Stanley Kubrick Archive.
  • 1962: We move to our home in Elephant and Castle, and become known as London College of Printing. Over the years, we begin to develop our teaching across areas including photography, film and public relations.
  • 2004: To reflect the growing diversity of our courses, we become London College of Communication.
  • 2017: We launch Screen School, which brings together traditional areas including film, television and animation with emerging disciplines such as games design and virtual reality.
