Leeds Trinity University’s School of Arts and Communication brings together staff expertise across a range of disciplines, has excellent industry links and a strong focus on the development of employability skills in our students. Our BA Photography is a new addition to the Leeds Trinity University portfolio and will run alongside the existing long-established media and journalism programmes which have built up an outstanding reputation over many years.

We offer an excellent range of benefits including generous holiday entitlements, staff development opportunities and a pension scheme.
