Following the Prime Minister's announcement on Monday 23 March, Leeds Arts University has closed its buildings until further notice. At present, all of the open days on our website from May onwards are still expected to take place, but will be kept under review as the situation develops. All open day registrants will be kept updated via email.

These open days are for students wanting to study our one year Access to Higher Education course. Students for this course are usually mature or returning to learning, or looking for a career change.

You need to register to attend the open day. The whole event lasts up to two hours.

These courses are taught in our Vernon Street building which is our oldest site built in 1903 based in the city centre. It is just off Millennium square, behind Leeds City Museum.

Please be aware we have two sites, so don’t get confused and go to our other site at Blenheim Walk.
