Mature students are generally 21 or over at the start of their chosen course.
LCF welcomes applications from mature students, including those who have few or no formal qualifications. We will take into account your work / industry experience, any professional qualifications you have, any relevant short courses completed, and any other information that will show you are a suitable candidate for the course you are applying to. This will give the course team evidence that you will be able to study at the required level.
For those courses that require a portfolio, you will need to show work that is sufficiently developed for your chosen course. What you need to show in your portfolio is specified on each course page, or you can check the general portfolio advice.
Please put all relevant experience on your application form and say what you learnt from each experience in your personal statement. If you have a question, you can contact our Enquiries Office by calling +44 (0)20 7514 7563 / 7344 or by completing our Online Enquiry Form.
