Changes to Courses
The communications sector is constantly evolving and developing at a rapid speed.
At London College of Communication, we regularly review and update the courses we offer to ensure they are at the cutting edge of new thinking and meet the changing needs of the creative industries so that our students are prepared for successful careers.
Further Education changes
LCC offers one pre-degree course designed specifically for international students. This course provides English language support and academic writing guidance throughout.

Foundation Diploma in Art and Design
UAL remains passionately committed to providing Foundation in Art and Design for art and design students.
We are keen, however, to save other students from the need to have an additional year in education, with its associated costs. For that reason, the qualification will no longer be delivered at London College of Communication (from 2016), where Foundation is generally not a prerequisite for entry to undergraduate courses.
Foundation will continue to be taught at UAL in two centres at Central Saint Martins and Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon. Find out more about the Foundation in Art and Design.
Undergraduate course changes
We regularly make changes to our degree programmes to ensure they reflect the latest thinking in the industry. This is called a revalidation. Revalidation is a process that makes sure students get a high-quality academic experience. During revalidation, there may be some changes and developments to course content.
The courses currently subject to revalidation are:
BA (Hons) Sports Journalism has recruited its final intake for September 2017. The course will close upon completion the of final intake of students on this course.
Postgraduate course changes
We have developed a range of new masters courses that will enhance our postgraduate portfolio and reflect developments within the creative industries.
The new courses (subject to validation) are:
- MA Data Visualisation
- MA Design for Art Direction
- MA User Experience Design
- MA 3D Computer Animation
- MA Virtual Reality
- MA Visual Effects
On occasion, it may be necessary to suspend recruitment to a course. This suspension is typically for a fixed period of time (normally one academic year) and the course will not recruit any students for that particular year of intake, however, the course is not formally being closed.
MA Graphic Media Design (part-time mode only) is currently suspended. The full-time mode of the course is recruiting as normal for September 2018 intake.
