Course Additional Entry

Applicants should demonstrate that they have a significant history (normally not less than 5 years) of professional performance and/or choreographic practice. Students will be encouraged to maintain their professional activity throughout the programme, and this will normally contribute to their portfolio/dissertation work. Mature students with a significant track record as a performer or choreographer, but who lack a relevant undergraduate degree will also be considered; in such cases evidence of academic writing ability is required. All UK based applicants will be interviewed in person. For international students a telephone or Skype interview will be arranged. Applicants for whom English is not their 1st language will need to meet the University's language requirements for postgraduate study.
