University of Roehampton

Course Introduction

Choreomundus is an Erasmus Mundus programme that investigates dance and other movement systems (ritual practices, martial arts, games and physical theatre) as intangible cultural heritage. It is offered by a consortium of four universities (in Norway, France, Hungary and the UK) recognised for their leadership in the development of innovative curricula for the analysis of dance.The programme will help you develop an appreciation of dance that is comparative, cross'cultural, applied and embodied.

Course Additional Entry

All applications will be considered in line with the equal opportunities policies of the 4 partner universities. Entry requirements are that candidates have a degree from a recognised institution, preferably, but not necessarily, in dance, anthropology or in related subjects (for instance drama, music, sports and human movement studies, sociology, cultural studies). They also need to have an enthusiasm for dance and give clear indication as to whether their background and interests are more anthropological or more ethnochoreological as the consortium plans to recruit half of each. If their 1st language is not English they will also need to have English language qualifications level 7 for study at postgraduate level. Once accepted, students will be registered at all 4 universities.
