With a history going as far back as 1846, Leeds Arts University has been helping to cultivate the next generation of creativity in students for over 170 years through its range of creative arts courses. It’s a specialist university, offering just 15 BA (Hons) undergraduate degrees compared to larger institutions that often have a portfolio of hundreds. This focus is a strength – it allows the university to ensure it puts its efforts (and funding) into a hand-selected range of qualifications, with a greater focus on the quality of each. Students will benefit from expert tuition delivered by teachers with extensive industry experience, in courses that are tailored to allow students to express their own creative abilities. The university also has a selection of postgraduate and further education courses available for students who wish to continue their studies.
