Course Summary

This course can be selected as a stand-alone 1-year programme for students who wish to explore their dance practice at a conservatoire in London whilst improving their English language skills. Students who select the 4-year BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance with International Foundation Year programme and pass all modules, will automatically progress to year 1 of the BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance programme at Trinity Laban.

Students on the International Foundation Year will undertake intensive English language tuition, both in general English language and applying this in dance contexts, using dance-specific terminology. Your English language studies will include developing language skills to enable you to analyse and talk about dance and dance performance you have seen. The Programme consists of 1300 notional learning hours made up of contact hours in class, and self-directed learning hours which include preparation for assessment components. Learning will take place through a blend of formal tuition, experiential learning and self-directed study.
