Supporting Families

We know that parents, guardians, friends and family members can be the biggest influence on the choices that a potential student makes for their future, providing a vital support network. It is understandable that you may feel anxious, particularly when a first time student moves away from home for study, and think it’s important that you are aware of what might be involved if they decide that studying at Leeds Conservatoire is for them.

Please note that we are unable to speak to third parties about specific cases without a student’s express permission due to data protection laws, and this includes speaking to parents, guardians, friends and family members. We appreciate that this can be frustrating for you, and we hope that you find the information on our website useful.

We have added some answers to frequently asked questions below that provide information and advice for parents, guardians, carers and family members who are supporting a student through the decision-making process when applying to a university or conservatoire.
