Now’s the time to do it.

If you’ve ever wanted to break into the design industry, now’s a great time to do it.

LCI Melbourne is taking applications for its Bachelor of Design Arts, with enrolment beginning in February.

For the uninitiated, the benefits of an LCI degree are numerous. Let us guide you through it:

1. Experience creative freedom

LCI encourages collaboration and creative expression, allowing you to work with like-minded individuals and industry professionals. Plus, the studio-based environment means you effectively have your own workspace to finetune your skills, as well as an onsite gallery when you’re ready to flaunt your stuff.

2. Design with purpose

Throughout the degree, you’ll be taught to design with a consideration of social and environmental impact. You’ll explore sustainable design techniques, as well as creating work with meaning.

3. Make $$$

Contrary to popular belief, creative careers can pay pretty well if you’re passionate enough. At LCI, you’ll get a solid grasp of the real world through project-based activities and hands-on experience with real clients.

4. Explore your skills

The beauty of the LCI degree is that it allows you to explore a variety of creative disciplines before selecting your major. That means you can sample a bit of everything and focus your learning later on. The six core areas include Communication Design, Fashion & Costume Design, Filmmaking & Photography, Graphic & Digital Design, Interior Design and Visual Arts. Like we said, everything.

5. Learn in a supportive community

The learning process at LCI is a bit different compared to other institutions. Your tutors (who are creative artists themselves) will provide more of a mentorship rather than a traditional teaching environment. You’ll benefit from years of experience taught through practice, rather than simply reading from a textbook.

Applications close February 1, 2019, but if you’re having trouble deciding, the Collingwood campus is hosting an open day in January.
