Trinity Laban School of Dance
London, United Kingdom (Outgoing Program)
London is quite simply one of the most exciting cities on earth. It is the center of everything British—culture, politics, finance, history, and royalty—but also a world capital with a huge multinational population. “When a man [or woman] is tired of London, he is tired of life,” said 18th-century author Samuel Johnson, and the quote is no less true today. Cultural highlights range from St Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London to the new British Library and Tate Modern art gallery. Once you’ve mastered the London Underground (also known as The Tube) and bus system, you’ll be ready to check out Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Harrods, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, and everything else London has to offer in terms of shopping, nightlife, parks, and recreation.
Individual programs will be made up from the components offered on Trinity Laban's One Year Programmes.
*BFA majors are expected to take daily modern technique classes, a course in choreography, and coursework focusing on the partnership between sound and movement. There may be additional courses required by Laban.
Information about the individual components can be found on the Trinity Laban website. Students studying at Laban for the Fall semester will take 12-16 credits.
*Rutgers BFA Dance students applying to this program must have completed or be enrolled in the following courses by spring semester of their second year: Choreography I, Improvisation II, Kinesiology, Technique IV, Rhythmic for Dancers, and Ballet VI. Mason Gross BFA students should work closely with their advisor to determine how this program will fit into their Dance Curriculum, as they will still be responsible for completing their Mason Gross core curriculum. Students must receive a grade of C or better for the credits taken abroad to transfer back to Rutgers.
You will need to be sure that you are registered as a full time student according to Trinity Laban and Rutgers University. That means that you will take 12-16 Rutgers credits per semester. It is not possible to take classes as not-for-credit or pass/fail.
For information about Study Abroad credit transfer, registration, and transcripts please visit the Academics section of our website.
Fall Semester: Early September – Mid-December
Academic Year: Early September – Early July.
*All dates are subject to change. Do not book your flight until you have been accepted by the university and the academic dates have been confirmed.
Accommodations and Meals
Students are normally housed in McMillan Student Village, a short walk away from the Trinity Laban campus. Rooms will either be in cluster flats or a studio style apartment. All rooms for visiting study abroad students are self-catering, which means that you will have access to kitchen or kitchenette facilities in your residence and can cook for yourself. Depending on availability, fall only students may be placed in alternative accommodations.
