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.

What to expect

At the open day you can get a feel for our friendly and creative environment. You will be welcomed by our team of student ambassadors, feel free to ask them about any aspect of University life, they will be happy to help.

The programme leader will tell you about how you will grow as an artist, the fantastic support we offer, the new friends you will make, and our student ambassadors will take you on a tour of the studio, workshops and facilities.

The open day is quite structured and we recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before it is due to start so you do not miss any information. It will last approximately one and a half hours.


Our postgraduate open days are held in our Blenheim Walk building, for details on how to find us please visit our Find Us page. Please note we don’t have car parking at University, details of the closest available car parks will be sent out prior to the open day.

Attending with guests 

You are welcome to bring two guests with you to the open day, we kindly ask you to bring no more than that due to limited space in our studios. You don’t need to reserve a place for your guests.
