Who is LCI Melbourne?

LCI Melbourne’s mission is to offer a high quality alternative to existing tertiary education in the Arts in universities.

LCI Melbourne (LCIM) is a bespoke, progressive art and design institute. LCI was established in 1959 in Montreal, Canada as LaSalle College International and has become a global network of design institutes with 23 campuses across the globe. LCIM offers a multidisciplinary Bachelor of Design Arts (BDA), and a suite of Higher Education Diplomas providing students with design thinking skills that can be applied across all creative industries. LCI offers an exceptional and unique design education by allowing students to explore the creative disciplines and discover their strengths. They can focus their creative loves across areas including fashion, costume, interior design, film, photography, graphic design & digital design and visual arts or cross pollinate a combination of all of these. We support students to discover, develop and springboard into careers that work for them. Learning from industry mentors, professional placements and cross-discipline collaboration, graduates emerge with the talent and connections to launch successful careers.
