LCC: New Developments
LCC course portfolio review
The College regularly reviews and updates the courses it offers to meet the changing needs of industry and to prepare students for successful careers in their chosen field.
As part of a recent review the College is exploring a range of new proposals and will not be recruiting students to some of its established courses. In the main the College will be re-modelling the current portfolio of FdA courses establishing them as full degree courses. Changes to course portfolio will commence in October 2013 with some courses phasing out and new courses being introduced.
The new course proposals are as follows:
- BA (Hons) Design Cultures
- BA (Hons) Spatial Design
- BA (Hons) Games Design
- BA (Hons) Animation
- BA (Hons) Film Practice
- BA (Hons) Live Events and Television
Courses being phased out (from October 2013) are as follows:
- BA (Hons) Interior Design
- FdA Interior Design
- BA (Hons) Book Arts and Design
- BA (Hons) Surface Design
- FdA Surface Design
- FdA Design for Graphic Communication, including top-up
- FdA Sports Journalism, including top-up
- FdA Media Practice, including top-up
- FdA Production for Live Events, including top-up
- FdA Animation, including top-up
- FdA Games Design, including top-up

Regulations for Run Out Courses
Students can be assured that all aspects of the courses that will phase-out from October 2013 will continue to be fully delivered, and resources and facilities will continue to be protected and invested in.
Any students applying for courses starting in October 2012 that belong to this group of courses being phased out should refer to the following excerpt from the University’s Regulations. Read item 4.8 of the Regulations for Run-Out courses (PDF - 217KB)These regulations explain that students on phasing out courses are unable to take a year out from their studies (either because they need to retake some or all of their units or because they need a break from their studies for other reasons). However, owing to the fact that we are replacing our phasing out provision with similar courses we hope, in these exceptional circumstances, to support students in attaining an appropriate transfer to another similar course where they meet the requirements for entry.
