London, 3 September 2020 – London College of Contemporary Arts (LCCA) has today announced the launch of new programmes in collaboration with the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) for the next autumn intake.
With this collaboration, LCCA will introduce new courses focusing on a wide range of areas including include Business Management, Fashion, Design, Marketing and more. The scope of the new programmes aims to expand the current academic offer at LCCA, reaching out to a wider audience of potential students.
Dr Kate Armstrong, Head of College at LCCA, said: “Our institution has an established history as an education provider in the creative arts. Whilst we work to strengthen our position, we are also looking forward to the opportunity of growing our academic offer. We are excited to have the opportunity to work with UCA and have them as our partners for the realisation of this next step in our development.”
The programmes will be taught by LCCA faculty at the Central London campus and are validated by UCA. In 2019, UCA received ‘Gold’ status in the ‘Teaching Excellence Framework’ (TEF), a testament to their commitment to delivering quality teaching and improving student outcomes.
Simon Macklin, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Portfolio Development & Global Engagement) said: ‘We are thrilled to be partnering with LCCA to deliver an exciting range of courses spanning creative and business disciplines.”
LCCA focuses on career-oriented education, giving students the specific skills they need to succeed. Working with UCA, a well-established provider for creative arts, the institution will be able to further support students and ensure they are ready to step into the industry after their studies.
Dr Armstrong added: “The creative industries are fast-changing and ever-evolving, with new professions being created every day. This new range of programmes will help more aspiring professionals to find their dream role in this highly competitive sector.”
The new programmes will range from one to four years in duration. To ensure that the institution is COVID-19 compliant, LCCA has adopted a blended learning approach and will deliver classes on-campus two days a week, with an online lesson delivered once a week. The first intake for the new courses is planned for October 2020 and February 2021.
