Program Overview

London College of Fashion (LCF) is the only college in the UK to specialize in fashion education.  With an international reputation for fashion education, LCF offers a unique portfolio of courses from fashion design to merchandising and communication.  LCF's aim is to reflect the breadth of opportunity available in this vibrant industry.  With campuses located throughout the city, students are members of an inspiring and diverse environment. 



The study abroad program at LCF is a self contained program of about 100 international students from all over the world.  Students complete the program as a cohort, separately from British students but there are plenty of opportunities to interact!  The college was founded in 1906 and is part of the University of the Arts London, Europe's largest university built around art, design, communication, fashion and the performing arts.  LCF has been offering programs to international students for over 35 years.

Location: The program takes place in the center of London, the capital city of England.  A city of 7.5 million people, London is known for its several prime fashion districts such as Soho, Bond Street, Brick Lane and Covent Garden.  Of the six campuses that make up LCF, two are in the retail district of Oxford Street, an area known to locals and tourists as a primary retail location.  Among several attractions throughout London, the LCF campuses are within commuting distance to destinations such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the National Gallery, the Design Museum, and several fashion neighborhoods.  Visits to these attractions round out the experience of studying fashion in the heart of the international fashion capital. 

London's public transit system also offers opportunities to visit every corner of London. As one of the world's major hubs, London has museums, culture and entertainment unparalleled by any other place in the world. If you are looking for a true big city experience, London is the best place study abroad. Its location also makes it ideal for visiting the rest of the UK and Europe.

The Office of International Education will be able to assist you with this process.

Program Cost

To help you to prepare for your semester abroad the Office of International Education has created semester budget sheets for your reference. These budget sheets are only an estimation and actual expenses may vary depending on changes in currency exchange rates, tuition increases, airfare and personal spending habits. We suggest that you set up a personalized budget to follow for the duration of your program. To view the estimated budget sheet please click here.

We strongly encourage you to print this budget sheet, and set-up a meeting with your financial aid counselor early during the application process to discuss how you will be paying for the program. Students who are eligible for financial aid may use such aid to help pay for all of the costs outlined on the budget sheet. Give your financial aid counselor a copy of the budget sheet for your program so your financial award can be adjusted to take into account the increased costs.
