Mission & Strategy

LCC Screen School encourages students to develop the critical, creative and technical excellence needed to succeed and discover new possibilities and practices. The LCC experience is all about “learning by doing”. Courses are known for being industry focused and taught by experienced academics, technical experts, and leading specialist practitioners. Students develop their skills in industry standard technical facilities including television, film and stop motion animation studios, post-production suites, audio facilities, 3D workshops, immersive reality labs and creative computing studios.

LCC is for the curious, the brave and the committed: those who want to transform themselves and the world around them. Students broaden their experience in an inspirational environment that has collaboration at its heart. Subjects are not taught in isolation, but within a diverse creative community that encourages collaborative working across disciplines, enabling students to bridge the gap between aspiration and equipping them for success in the creative screen industries.
