The M.A Choreography by Independent Research degree offers Higher Education study to professionals who may not wish to engage with a taught programme of study but seek to validate their independent choreographic research through accreditation of prior standing and through the completion of a Reflective practice module (this can be taught flexible through evening and or weekend sessions) and a Dissertation project.
The programme will be of interest to established and mid-career artists both regionally, nationally and internationally for whom flexibility of study is of key importance.
