1. Tour the facilities

We can talk until we’re blue in the face about our world-class facilities here at Leeds College of Music, but that’s not quite the same as seeing them for yourself!

Be sure to check out the demos in our state-of-the-art studios, plus, you’ll see our top-notch rehearsal spaces, Steinway piano suite and multiple mac labs.

Don’t miss our in-house performance spaces 219 and The Venue - which has a stunning, panoramic bar adjoined. Grab a tour between 11.00am and 4.00pm!

If you’re moving away from home for the first time, it’s vital to get a feel for where you’ll be living, and start to imagine yourself in your new home!

Both sites not only ensure easy access to the conservatoire, but they’re just a short walk into the heart of Leeds city centre – so you’ll have everything you need, right on your doorstep!
