About Leeds College of Art

Over the last 170 years, Leeds College of Art has contributed significantly to the development of art education in Britain, having pioneered new ways to teach and to structure qualifications.

Leeds College of Art is one of only a few independent art schools in the UK, our students enjoy a small, close-knit community in a creative atmosphere where anything feels possible. We believe this is the best environment in which to grow as an artist or designer.

To a great extent, our reputation goes before us: Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth studied here, as did, more recently, Marcus Harvey, Damien Hirst, Danny Sangra and Omar Kashoura. However, we never allow complacency. We work extremely hard to remain a leading centre for art and design education, choosing from among the brightest international potential to produce some of the most sought-after creative talent.

Campus information

Our fabulous, state-of-the-art resources and libraries offer you the best possible opportunities for proving your talent and your potential. You’ll be able to produce work which meets or exceeds the demands of modern practice in art and design. Not all our studios and facilities are included above in the virtual tours, these are just a sample.

Our workshops and studios are equipped to industry standards, and are run by highly skilled staff who contribute significantly to our teaching. Studios are open on a Saturday and workshops have a drop-in facility so you can carry on working in your own time. 

Over 65% of the district is greenbelt land, so there are plenty of trees and green spaces to enjoy. Leeds is less than 20 miles from the Yorkshire Dales national park, which offers some of the most spectacular scenery and countryside in Britain—ideal for when you want to escape and go walking, canoeing, climbing, mountain-biking, or exploring.
