Policies and regulations

Student Protection Plan

As a higher education provider registered with the Office for Students (OfS), we must publish a Student Protection Plan which sets out how continuation of study will be preserved for current and potential students at Leeds Conservatoire.

Accreditation of prior learning (APL)

Applicants who have undertaken learning which has been formally assessed and certified by another educational institution or training provider, as well as applicants who have gained formal recognition of learning through other experience (e.g. in-house training programmes that are not externally assessed), may be able to use this towards their study at Leeds College of Music either to satisfy entry requirements or to join the programme at a later stage. The following document provides further information on the conservatoire’s APL application procedure.
