Many students at NSCD supplement their income by undertaking part-time work. This is fairly easy to come by in Leeds, and some work for students is offered by the School itself.

Northern School of Contemporary Dance does not have student accommodation connected to the school but we do facilitate a House Hunting Day in June and provide support and useful contacts for you to use when arranging your accommodation. Find out more about Accommodation in Leeds.
