The MA Dance offers a unique postgraduate programme to combine academic study in performance with a practice-based approach to performance.

The programme includes:

* Choreographic Methods
* Analyzing and Performing Oral History and Ethnography
* Creative and Critical Writing in Dance
* Staging Performance
* Research Methods
* Dissertation/Production
* Technique in Various Dance Forms

Dance at UEL
The Dance Master's programme benefits from the inclusion of a wide range of visiting practitioners - both dancers and choreographers. In addition to giving 'masterclasses', these practitioners deliver some of the modules on the programme. Each year, different dance companies and artists act as mentors for the Choreographic Methods module taking students through the whole process of putting a choreographing and performing work


The MA Dance is offered both full- and part-time. Teaching is usually in the evenings.

Students take one or two modules a semester and there is a dissertation project to be taken over the final semester.

MA Dance students can work in close collaboration other MA programmes in the Performing Arts field.

Learning environment
Teaching consists of a variety of methods including skills-based classes (technique and choreography) as well as analysis, workshops, seminars and lectures.

Each module on the MA is assessed through coursework components. These components typically consist of research work, presentations and performances.

Relevance to work/profession
Students get the chance to work with professionals in the field to build contact. All through the Dance MA students learn what is most important in the field of dance and performance theoretically, methodologically and choreographically in our current social, cultural and political climate.

Thesis/Dissertation/project work
The MA Dance combines theory, research and practice. The final dissertation module, therefore, consists of a combination of these, depending on the skills and future directions of each student.

Special provision is made for the interviewing of international students who are unable to come to the UK for an audition or interview.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
