The School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies at the University of Leeds is an exciting place to study your undergraduate degree.
You'll be challenged to think about art and culture in many different ways, from different perspectives and within global rather than Western or Eurocentric perspectives.
You'll be encouraged to take part in weekly Visiting Artists Talks, staff and student-led trips to national and local galleries, and you'll have opportunities to showcase your creative side in open studios, student-film nights and off-campus exhibitions.
