As part of your course you’ll:

  • Explore a wide spectrum of disciplines including design for print, illustration, photography, typography, animation and moving image
  • Discover your strengths and develop your own individual style
  • Have the opportunity to show off your projects to the public and impress industry by exhibiting your work at the end of your final year
  • Drive your own learning and set your own targets, as you would in the workplace

Our students have worked alongside practitioners and on live briefs from organisations such as Harvey Nichols, the BBC, Leeds Art Gallery and the NHS. You can see some examples of work from our students in our 2020 Leeds School of Arts Festival website and in our 2019 end of year show publication.

The INSIDE/OUT lecture series brings together some of the most exciting names from the fields of art, architecture, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts and beyond. You can catch up on previous lectures by visiting the Leeds Arts Research Centre site.
