Postgraduate

Our Masters level programmes offer opportunities for students to develop their skills as performers, choreographers, independent researchers and somatic practitioners.

As an MA student you will have access to the lively arts research culture at the University including:  regular programmes of research presentations given by staff and visiting artists, web-based learning, research students and visiting artists/researchers, performances by professional artists/companies, theatre trips to performance events, arts research training events and national arts conferences.

The majority of courses involve regular taught sessions, classes and seminars and can be studied in both full and part-time modes. MA's by Independent Research enable students to develop their own work as practitioners and the Somatic and Choreography Independent programmes enable students to use their professional practice / teaching experience to gain credits (up to 90 credits) for Prior Learning and Experience.

Learning across all programmes is assessed using various methods including performances, practical choreography presentations, essays, reports, presentations, learning journals, portfolios, online tasks and group working.
