Leeds College of Art hopes to create a lifelong relationship with our alumni. The alumni association aims to build and nurture the creative community of College alumni, staff and current students. Every student who has passed through the College, from its beginnings as Leeds School of Art, to its time as Jacob Kramer College (1968-1993) and Leeds College of Art and Design, are all part of our alumni community. With notable alumni spanning right from the first graduates of 1846, this is a pretty special community to become a part of.

Whether you studied part-time or full-time, we’d love to hear from you. If you have studied with us for three months or more or were a staff member of the College, simply complete the sign up form to join.

We look forward to sharing your news and accomplishments and hope that many of you will help us to provide careers advice, case studies and opportunities for current students. 

Alumni can also join the Leeds College of Art Alumni LinkedIn Group where you can connect with fellow alumni and start discussions online.
