ATHE and London College of Creative Media (LCCM) launch partnership to provide a general entry route to LCCM Degree courses for learners achieving two ATHE Level 3 60-credit Diplomas (one being in Business) and a specific progression pathway to the BA (Hons) Music Business Management degree.

LCCM are the UK's only specialist independent higher education college for creative people offering industry-led degrees in music and creative entrepreneurship, founded by professional musicians in 2003, LCCM has attracted students from across the world, helping them to prepare for a life in music – as artists, managers, musicians, songwriters and musical directors.

LCCM has a reputation for nurturing creative talent; they have successfully bridged the gap between traditional universities, conservatoires and rock and pop schools, by combining the best elements of all three into a modern centre for artistic, creative and academic excellence.

Now LCCM offer the same personalised and collaborative learning environment to aspiring music executives, and creative entrepreneurs based in the Music Box, their purpose-built creative campus in the heart of London, SE1.

LCCM Community 

Designed for people who are serious about developing a career in music, LCCM is a place where talent, imagination and creativity flourish.

As a college with a small student population, LCCM take pride in getting to know every individual. You will find the expert staff encouraging and approachable and the students friendly and supportive.

LCCM’s industry roots and relationships provide access to a network of professionals to help underpin your creative career for years to come.

Aim at LCCM 

LCCM aim to help you realise your potential and career ambitions, preparing you for a long and rewarding professional life in the creative industries or beyond.

Graduate opportunities and the skills demanded by employers today are radically different than in the past. LCCM’s unique approach recognises this, giving you a practical education that not only helps you master your chosen subject or instrument, but actively encourages collaboration, communication, initiative and hard work.

With this in mind, LCCM’s new degrees, such as BMus Commercial Music Technology and MSc Entertainment Science have been designed to work in close conjunction with their already well-established music programme. This means all of their students benefit from an education in tune with the needs of the UK’s creative industries, where music and original ideas are more valued than ever before.

Life at LCCM

LCCM hold a variety of events and masterclasses throughout the year at their purpose-built venue the Music Box. Since opening in December 2018, this brand-new facility has hosted student performances, masterclasses and student-led events.
