London College of Creative Media
LCCM is a specialist higher education college. This means we focus on a specific range of related subjects. Because our degrees are designed and run by leading figures from the music, publishing and software industries, when you choose to study at LCCM you can expect to leave well equipped for graduate level work in or beyond the creative industries
Modules and Credit
All our programmes award credit according to the modules studied. The number of credits allocated to each module reflect the curriculum content and the expected amount of study. The table below shows an example of how this works in practice. Depending on your programme lectures, seminars, personal tutorials and group development sessions will affect your ratio of taught hours to independent study.
Independent learning is a key feature of higher education and LCCM will actively facilitate this skill. There is guidance provided to help you understand the nature of independent learning on the student portal, and tutors will ensure you understand the nature and expectations for their particular module.Independent learning includes activities such as:
- Practicing and developing your skills
- Reading/listening around your study area
- Researching information in a range of formats
- Preparing for seminars and tutorials
- Applying your studies in different contexts
- Working with your peers
- Preparing for assessments
- Part-time study
Where possible LCCM will provide part-time study options to suit you. Part-time study is normally provided as a personalised study plan within the full-time timetable. In some instances, part-time options are only available as a separate cohort and will be dependent on minimum numbers.
