Over the last 30 years we have increased our portfolio to include Degrees, a Graduate Diploma and a Master's. We have established links with leading organisations including Hearst Magazines, publishers of ELLE magazine, Cosmopolitan, Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar and institutions such as University of the Arts London Awarding Body, Kingston University and The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.


As a student you will be actively supported through a hands-on-approach, extensive contact time with your lecturers and all the equipment, materials, space and time you need to discover and develop your own individual voice and style as a creative artist. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible environment in which to meet your full potential.


Housing services

We offer a range of halls of residences for different age groups, the majority of which are all single en-suite. All residences for students all within a short walk or bus journey of the College and City Centre.We try to ensure that students live with other students of a similar age, and all of our over-18s are housed separately. Continuing students who are over 18 also have the option of self-catering accommodation, if certain conditions are met.
