“I’m studying Comic and Concept Art here, and the teachers have been very involved in my progress by helping me every time I’ve needed it. The workload is challenging, but not excessively so. There’s also plenty of clubs to get involved in, so meeting people is easy if you want to!”

About Leeds Arts University

PROS

  • Leeds Art University combats the perception that art students can’t find work with their reliable and effective Careers Services, which students describe as realistic and knowledgeable. Workshops are available for CV and interview skill improvement.
  • The most recurring opinion from students about this university is that there is a sense of community and belonging. This is a natural consequence of an environment where different kinds of art students support each other.
  • Customisable coursework depending on your personal interests, giving the student more freedom to explore the themes that are most motivating for them.

CONS

  • Students enrolled on a variety of courses report that not a lot of time is given to learning in the classroom. For those learners who struggle to manage their own time and learning, this may be a challenge.
  • While the university advertises their film studio space as being divided into three separate sections, film students complain that the sound studio is not isolated. This means that this space is often not available for use.
