Finding ways to invest in our campus and make enhancements to our specialist equipment and facilities.
Leeds City College is the UK’s third largest FE institution, offering a wide ranging curriculum to over 55,000 students. Like Leeds College of Music it provides a vibrant, multicultural learning environment, delivering excellent and innovative education that is supportive, inspiring and life changing.
In August 2011, Leeds College of Music entered a strategic partnership with the Leeds City College group. Leeds College of Music has kept its name, brand and purpose built premises in the city’s Quarry Hill cultural quarter. We continue to offer the same broad range of specialist music courses in Higher and Further Education and we will retain our commitment to community engagement.
Joining forces with a larger educational establishment enables Leeds College of Music to maintain its teaching quality and further improve its support for students; while at the same time achieve long term viability as funding for education is reduced. The alliance between Leeds College of Music and Leeds City College has also enabled the organisation to secure additional grant funding, which is being used to make enhancements to our buildings and its specialist equipment and facilities.
University of Bradford | www.brad.ac.uk
Developing opportunities for collaboration between our respective music and media programmes.
Leeds College of Music’s undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are validated by the University of Bradford. Bradford has always been a forward-thinking, modern and student-orientated university, with a firm commitment to celebrating diversity. The relationship with the university provides a number of opportunities for our students to perform on the Bradford campus, both in LCoM performance ensembles and in joint ensembles with Bradford students.
Leeds College of Music students are also able to access the University’s library and eResources, seminars and talks, and Student Union clubs and societies. The University of Bradford offers excellent media courses in partnership with the National Media Museum; Leeds College of Music and the University are currently working on developing new opportunities for collaboration between our respective music and media programmes.
