London Art College - International Students
While the majority of our students continue to be based in
the UK, we are pleased to have a significant number of international students

across the globe. The London Art College has a diverse and international
student body, and with the increasing accessibility of the internet, enrolling
and studying with us has become more convenient than ever.
Our student community at the London Art College comprises individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Both
international and UK-based students have the flexibility to enrol at any time that suits their schedule. It's important to note that all our courses are conducted in English, and we do require students to have a reasonable standard of proficiency in both written and spoken English. We do not offer instruction in languages other than English.
All courses are written in English and critiques, either written or audio, are also in English.
Our courses are entirely conducted online, eliminating the
need for any in-person sessions or visits to the UK. Students receive the full
course material digitally, organized into progressive study units. Assignments
can be submitted electronically, and tutors' feedback will be uploaded for easy
Tuition fees are denominated in
£ Sterling. When enrolling with a credit/debit card, your provider will charge

Please note that our courses do
not include art materials. However, you can generally purchase these locally at
a reasonable cost. If necessary, we can recommend mail-order suppliers. The
London Art College is a private institution, and our financial support relies
on tuition fees, so we do not offer discounts or subsidized fees. Students are
responsible for any import duties or taxes imposed by their country of
residence on the art course documents or educational materials, even in the
case of returns.
We provide an instalment plan
for students residing outside the UK. If you choose to pay in instalments from
abroad, the online version of the course will be available, and a hardcopy will
not be dispatched. All artwork submissions should be made through the Art Room.
We are a vocational college
focused on skills improvement, rather than an academic institution. We issue
our own Diplomas and Certificates, a tradition we've maintained since 1931, but
these credentials do not carry academic credits.
While many of our courses have
practical, real-world applications, a significant number of students choose to
study with us simply to enhance their artistic abilities. We encourage students
to build portfolios of their artwork whenever possible.
After enrolling, you can
request to join the college's Facebook group, where we encourage you to
actively participate and engage with the college community.
The college offers a wide range of courses and if, after looking at the information provided on our website, you need advice or further information about which course is best for you, please contact us.
