Adobe Creative Cloud to be provided for Leeds School of Arts students

In order to ensure the continuation of a great learning experience amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Leeds School of Arts is funding licences to provide the majority of its students with access to the Adobe Creative Cloud software suite for the next academic year. 

In a move that puts the school ahead of a large number of other institutions, students will be able to use Adobe’s collection of over twenty desktop and mobile apps and services for photography, design, video, web and more, wherever they choose to work. Previously these programmes were available on campus but would have had to be paid for to be used off-campus. Being provided with this on-demand access to the Creative Cloud means students will have more flexibility to work in the way that suits them and ensures their safety. The decision was also made in order to guarantee that no one was disadvantaged by the current circumstance and that they could continue to work on the inspiring array of projects we have come to expect from them. 

With regards to this move Lisa Stansbie, Dean of Leeds School of Arts, said “As a school we are committed to delivering the best possible learning experience and finding the right solutions to do this in the face of the challenges created by the coronavirus. Providing access to Adobe Creative Cloud is one way in which we can help our students continue to produce amazing work at this difficult time.”

The agreement will provide access for all Architecture, Art & Design, Film, Creative Technologies and Music & Sound students and includes the majority of Adobe software, including: 

  • Adobe Photoshop suite
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Adobe InDesign
  • Adobe XD
  • Adobe Acrobat DC
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Adobe Lightroom
  • Adobe Spark
  • Adobe Fresco
  • Adobe Dimension
  • Adobe Dreamweaver
