Degree shows mark the end of three years of hard work, experimentation and learning. Aside from being a collective sigh of relief from third year students, they are also a fantastic opportunity for us, the public, to sample the creative talent that has been developed in our cities. As newcomers to the city of Leeds, we are looking forward to checking out the degree shows for the first time and seeing the work that has been produced across three universities.
