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.
New short courses
The school is offering a range of exciting short courses for adults (18+). Our courses are aimed at different levels from beginners to experienced practitioners.
