UCAS will send your applications to the institutions to which you have applied to all at the same time.
The appropriate deadline is clearly stated on the 'at a glance tab' on the course pages of this website an on UCAS Course Search.
If you have sent your application on or before the 15 January deadline you will have a decision from us by 31st March.
Please note that the exact UCAS deadlines may be subject to change. Please check all dates with the UCAS 2013 entry documentation. The instructions that accompany the UCAS form, 'How to Apply', explain how your Art and Design courses should be entered onto the UCAS form.

Many of our courses do not accept deferred entry applicantions and you are advised to contact the College.
If you are unsuccessful in your application some courses may still have places available and you may be able to apply through the UCAS Clearing process. Clearing typically runs from the third week in August before the start of the course. You will be able to find out about the LCF courses going through clearing on this website nearer the time.
When your application form arrives at London College of Fashion an admissions tutor will review it and you may be called to interview. Selection is based initially on academic qualifications and/or previous experience, the reference and your personal statement.
If you have applied to a design course (such as Fashion Design Technology or Fashion Photography) you may be asked to bring a portfolio of work with you to interview. Information about what to include in your portfolio can be found on the Portfolio Advice page.
If you have applied to a non-design (such as Fashion Management or Beauty Therapy) course, you may be asked to sit a short written, mathematics or aptitude test at interview.
From the interview the course team decides which students are to be selected. In some cases the offer of a place may be conditional and dependent on students passing required examinations. In all cases the decision of the course team is final.
We are happy to discuss arrangements to support disabled students prior to application.
