You'll become part of a diverse postgraduate community with students from a range of subject backgrounds and benefit from excellent facilities. 

Regular events, including a wide-ranging programme of research colloquia, in the School and across the University will allow you to network and build relationships with professionals from different industries and sectors. Outside of your studies, you'll be encouraged to take part in the many opportunities on campus to make the most of your time at Leeds.

“I chose Leeds because they were so welcoming and accommodating. This was one of the only MA courses that invited me for a face to face interview and audition. Meeting Mike Allis and experiencing his welcoming demeanor made the decision for me.”
