Our Courses

Welcome to Film, Music and Performing Arts short courses – brought to you by the School of Film, Music and Performing Arts at Leeds Beckett University.

Our programme offers a wide range of short, part-time and accredited courses. Whether you are looking to learn more about film, music or performing arts, considering a change in career or are a professional looking to enhance your skills, we are sure to have a course to suit your needs.

All our courses offer fantastic opportunities for you to participate in hands on, practical workshops and to take advantage of the facilities, equipment and teaching expertise within the School of Film, Music and Performing Arts.

Leeds will act as the perfect backdrop to studying on these courses. The city has a lively and continually evolving cultural scene with a number of internationally acclaimed organisations calling Leeds their home, including Opera North, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Northern Ballet and Phoenix Dance. There are also a growing number of visual arts collectives, independent designers and a varied music scene.
