As a College, we’re committed to building, sustaining and developing relationships in ways that are responsive to individual needs and the ever-changing world around us.
Our staff, students and graduates are passionate about supporting local businesses, organisations and residents through creative approaches that aim to solve society’s big challenges.
Out of all six UAL Colleges, LCC has the largest number of students joining from the local area, as well as the most diverse student body. This richness of skills, ideas and experiences makes us perfectly placed to collaborate with our communities as we work together to tackle society’s big challenges and nurture the next generation of the creative industries.
