London College of Communication is one of the six colleges that come under the University of Arts, London, and is considered to be one of the best communication and media colleges of the world. It offers excellent programs for the students in the vast areas of media, design and communication, and has a very good reputation all over the globe.
LCC understands that postgraduate studies form a very significant part of one’s profile, and that it is important for the students to get full value out of the course they are applying for. Thus, the college aims to develop courses, which are not only good for people who have recently graduated and are pursuing postgraduate programs, but also for those who have been working for several years after graduation, and are now looking at making their profile more dynamic with a formal post-graduate degree.
Obviously, for ensuring success of the students in the industry, it is ideal that the programs have a blend of theoretical knowledge as well as practical training. LCC keeps these two core elements intact in each of its postgraduate programs, and also adds the importance of Research to it. The faculty believes that as much as theory and practical training are important for a person, it is also essential to have a good portfolio, and a research oriented mind, so that students are capable of becoming better professionals once they join the industry.
