All the colleges are located within London and each college is at the heart of their respective communities. Drawing on and contributing to the local culture, they foster closely-knit and welcoming environments in which to study, supported by all the resources of the larger University and the wider arts community. The University’s 1,228 teaching staff; as active professional artists, practitioners, designers, critics and theorists, lead the way on creative and experimental practice alongside historical and theoretical analysis. The combination of a varied student group, cutting-edge research and highly-experienced staff creates a unique, multifaceted learning experience for students at the University.
London College of Communication (LCC)

LCC is wired into theses industries more than any other British university. Their ethos is learning by doing. Student population: 5,000
Programs at UAL
The Colleges offer the University’s 20,000 students a diverse range of courses, with some of the colleges offering a different focus or area of study within the same discipline. As these courses often have the same course title across the colleges and as each college has its own personality, we encourage students to read carefully both the course descriptions and the descriptions of each college, before making a careful choice of which to apply for.
TOTAL CREDIT HOURS 40 UAL credits per term (12 semester credits)
Students who choose to study abroad in London at LCC will enroll directly alongside local undergraduate students who are full-time, degree-seeking students.Students are required to work more independently than they may be accustomed to at their home institution. While teaching is not conducted in a traditional U.S. lecture-based class setting, students receive guidance from faculty and are helped to identify the resources they need to reach course goals. Course content is delivered in a variety of ways, including individual and group tutorials, projects, seminars, lectures, and museum, gallery and studio visits.
