Students who choose to follow the Postgraduate Programme in Performance usually join the School following conservatoire level training and completion of a BA in Dance (or the overseas equivalent). Equivalent professional experience is acceptable in lieu of a first degree and we welcome applications from imaginative artists, whether or not they hold formal academic qualifications. Students who aim to graduate with a Master of Arts qualification must demonstrate confident writing skills in English.
Candidates whose first language is not English need to demonstrate English language proficiency by submitting results from a recognised testing service, such as the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Academic Test. The minimum score required for is IELTS 6.5 (no less than 6.0 in any element).
Candidates who need the IELTS for their visa application must ensure they take a UK Visa and Immigration recognised test. Check ielts.org for recognised test centres.
