Want to learn more about our very own student magazine? Do you have a project that's been swimming around in your head for a while now but you haven't had the funds to put it together? Maybe you have a skill that you'd like to share or a skill that you'd like to learn? Maybe you're looking for industry experience, a part-time job, or graduation is looming close and you don't quite know what you're doing with yourself? 


Well, hopefully, you'll find all your answers right here or at least it'll get your creativity flowing!




NEST Magazine is Leeds Arts University's independent, bi-annual printed publication, which provides a physical platform for students from various disciplines to showcase their work.


All content and designs are created by current students at Leeds Arts University.



As you're all wonderfully creative bods, the Union will always try to support your creativity as much as possible.


The Project Fund is intended to support a range of student-led extra-curricular projects and activities, encouraging collaboration between students from different courses and disciplines from across the University.


ArtsFest is our student exhibition and event program. Our ArtsFest program runs throughout the year, exploring a variety of themes and disciplines.

All students are invited to submit creative work in a range of mediums from spoken word, live music to traditional exhibition pieces. 

ArtsFest is all about showcasing your talent. 






Simple. Straight to the point and does what it says on the tin.


Our Skill Swap initiative, in partnership with the Univerity's Widening Participation team, provides a platform for your student-run events, giving you the support and means to swap skills, share experiences and grow our community.

All your careers support in one place. Leeds Arts University students and alumni can book 1-to-1 appointments; search campus and external events; browse live briefs and paid opportunities; request a CV review or ask the careers team a question.
