Together we question and we solve problems
The Leeds Beckett School of Art, Architecture and Design, with a history that spans over 170 years, is united by a common goal: to encourage individuality, to inspire creativity, and to create impact. We have an exciting and experimental approach to contemporary, creative practice – set in the heart of a culturally energised city. Our aim is to instil in you the confidence, curiosity and commitment to thrive at University and beyond, and to give you the freedom and independence to both think, and to make.
"Do..." - End of Year Show 2017Our students make things happen. They are doers. People that act as well as talk, discuss, debate, collaborate, wonder and think. At Leeds Beckett University, we are justly proud of their achievements...
Previous 'End of Year' Shows
Each year we host several shows which give our students in the final year the opportunity to showcase their work.
OUR FACILITIESArchitecture and art studiosOur studios provide space for individual and group projects and facilities include parallel motion boards, flip-top drawing boards, and letterpress and printmaking workshops.

The exhibition includes installation, films, documentation and drawings that contribute to the development of blubilds.
