Leeds Arts University is one of only a few independent art schools in the UK, we are proud of the vibrant and dynamic culture that has developed since the University was founded in 1846 as Leeds School of Art.

We wish to ensure that all our students are able to realise their potential, regardless of their financial background. Your support will help future generations of artists and creatives flourish.
