This course is based in the heart of Oxford Street, John Princes Street (JPS), which is our most central site and close to many of London’s main attractions, points of interest and of course, shops. We are however, planning to move to a new single campus on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2023. This is part of a new development for London, prioritising culture, education and innovation, known as East Bank. 

London College of Fashion, UAL, leads the world in fashion business, media and design education. We’ve been nurturing creative talent for over a century, offering courses in all things fashion. With our philosophy of open and inclusive education, we encourage students to examine the past and question the present.
