Application Process
There are no formal entry requirements for admission to the Foundation Course. This can benefit some students with lower exam grades, as some art colleges will accept a Merit Pass on the Foundation Course as entry into Second Year. We advise students as far as possible to check in advance what the entry requirements are for the degree of their choice.

Students are invited to interview with their portfolios. Interviews take place from the end of February and we accept late applications, providing there is still availability on the course.  For full details on the application process please click here.

The School has an Assisted Places Scheme. For further details visit our Fees & Funding page.

Leith School of Art is not registered through UCAS. Please apply online through our website.

‘I think that the School’s distinctive atmosphere of encouragement and honesty, and the exchange of ideas within our group, helped me to flourish.’
