An experience like no other.

This unique two-year course will engender an appreciation of dance that is comparative, crosscultural, applied and embodied.

The programme provides practical skills in:

  • formal analysis of movement
  • motion capture
  • documentation
  • evaluation of dances

You will develop an appreciation of dance that is comparative, cross-cultural, applied, and embodied.

The School is home to the internationally recognised Centre for Research in Arts and Creative Exchange, which aims to interrogate what arts research is and can be in the current climate, and to lead, invent and innovate on how research is conducted. Through seminars, forums and conferences involving staff and international guests, the Centre supports a compelling research culture.

We have been ranked number one in the UK for the impact of our research in dance (Research Excellence Framework 2021).


How you'll learn

Energetic and innovative, this programme reimagines the learning journey.

In the first semester, you will start in France for an induction and an intensive course. For the rest of the first academic year, students are divided between NTNU Trondheim and the University of Szeged, Hungary, and then spend their third semester in France, and the fourth and final semester at the University of Roehampton.

On graduation, you will be awarded a joint Masters degree from all four universities.
