You are taught through a combination of:
- Practical classes (for example technique, dance making)
- Seminars and lectures (for example dance science, research)
- Online learning (for example VLE, OneNote, Twitter, Pinterest)
- Authentic learning experiences (work placement, teaching opportunities)
Seminars enable the discussion and development of understanding of topics covered in lectures whereas authentic learning experiences allow you to apply your learning to real-life scenarios. You have an opportunity to undertake a semester long placement in the second year of the course, supervised for agreed projects by a work-based mentor and a University tutor. However, there are many additional opportunities for learning in an applied context.
In addition, meetings with personal academic tutors are scheduled on at least four occasions in the first year and three occasions in each of the other years of a course.
You will complete a degree that is highly relevant for a physical education expert in dance. You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of PE or dance modules allowing you to customise this degree to your exact needs. We will provide our support, our understanding and our experience. In return we want active, engaged students who want to experiment, challenge and who will never settle for ordinary.
There will be an opportunity for performance throughout the academic year and during the summer.
