As well being given the opportunity to exhibit each year, you will be encouraged to take a proactive approach, collaborate with others and make your own opportunities - just as you will in the real world.

Leeds has a thriving visual arts scene and our students have formed their own collectives, participating in the annual Light Night event and even setting up their own galleries. Final year students will also have the opportunity to exhibit their work at our annual Degree Show, which is attended by arts professionals from across the country.

The course also has a Visiting Lecturer Programme for you to engage with professional practicing artists and gain a valuable insight into how creative individuals operate in a world beyond the University. Each week an artist is invited to give a lecture to students about their work and students are encouraged to meet with the artist on an individual basis to discuss their work after the lecture. This opportunity will help inform your ideas and the evolution of your own practice.

    Our visiting lecturer programme on the course is very comprehensive. We ask our visiting speakers to stay for a further day to deliver tutorials to those students who've identified with a particular artist. Consequently, we get a number of students who network very effectively before they've even graduated.

    Simon studied at the Royal College of Art and is a practising artist, currently undertaking a research-based, practice-led PhD. He recently had his work publicly screened as part of Light Night Leeds 2015.
