Leeds Arts University

Leeds Arts University is the only specialist arts university in the North of England and based in one of the most dynamic cities in the country. It has contributed significantly to the development of arts education in Britain for over 170 years, having pioneered new ways to teach and to structure qualifications. Students are encouraged to challenge conventions and to look for new ways of expressing ideas. Courses provide a strong vocational focus, with real-life experience and practical advice that will help shape ambitions for the future. Students benefit from opportunities such as working on live briefs, work placements, competitions and exhibitions. Leeds Arts University offers outstanding, industry-standard equipment and facilities – so students are not held back by the limitations of physical space, facilities or kit – which enables them to produce work that meets or exceeds the demands of modern practice in the arts.
