About Us

Schools and Colleges Engagement

Here at Leeds Arts University, we are keen to work with secondary schools and further education colleges to support your students in navigating their journey into higher education. We hope to increase awareness and understanding of the range of opportunities in the creative industries and the steps to get there.

We offer a range of activities to best support your institution, staff and students, from in-school talks, informative campus tours and creative workshops, to attendance at your higher education fairs.
