Leeds Conservatoire

Leeds Conservatoire has a national and international reputation for creativity and innovation, and for being a truly contemporary specialist teaching institution.

Its staff and industry partners are at the cutting edge of their creative disciplines, and its students are encouraged and supported to explore their individual artistic identities in an environment that is rich in diversity and free of aesthetic and stylistic limitations.

It is the largest UK conservatoire in terms of student numbers but is small enough to form a close-knit and welcoming community with a strong focus on inclusivity.

The conservatoire’s programmes are characterised by inspirational training with experts in a huge variety of specialisms, supported by bespoke workshops and masterclasses by world-leading visiting practitioners. Its facilities are industry-standard, the curriculum is designed around industry practice, and its students have access to a wealth of professional partners and expert knowledge both within and outside its curriculum.

It seeks the new artforms of the future, valuing experimentation and creative risk, and exposing its students, staff and audiences to new artistic experiences.
