Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA or billed to you.
Course Restrictions
Leeds School of Design (DESN) requires a year of design study and generally only admits majors in art, design, or fashion. Students wishing to study core design modules must secure pre-approval by submitting a portfolio.
Fourth-year courses and higher are part of a postgraduate degree (Masters or Ph.D.). You are not eligible to take these courses as an undergraduate study abroad student.
