Working in partnership

The School of Music has strong collaborative links with many creative partners in Leeds and across the country.

We are proud to work with organisations including Opera North, leading music therapy charity Nordoff Robins, and the Leeds International Piano Competition to deliver outstanding events and opportunities for students, staff and people living in the Yorkshire region.

We also work with other universities and colleges, such as the Royal Northern College of Music, to promote the benefits of studying music. 

Graduates are welcome to join our employability mentoring scheme, to share knowledge and build relationships with our current undergraduates.
