FCAD London

The FCAD London introduces students to the London market through transatlantic creative projects with local partner universities and industry.

In support of our evolving creative hub, we have established an alumni mentorship group that advises both students and faculty members in forming connections within the United Kingdom.

Mentorship Program

Our mentors are FCAD alumni who are making waves in their creative industries and call the UK their home.

They come from many of FCAD's schools and are now passing their wisdom on what it means to forge an international creative career to the growing number of FCAD students who visit the UK on student exchange every year.
