The MA Professional Practice in Dance Technique Pedagogy is a highly flexible postgraduate qualification designed for newly qualified or experienced dance teachers working in and beyond schools. This is a low residency programme using on-line / distance learning, with the opportunity to visit Middlesex University's London campus. The programme has been developed especially to allow you to continue working, integrating your professional expertise with academic learning.

The development of 'self' as a practicing artist/educator is a central focus of this programme, alongside critical reflection on and advancement of one's individual pedagogic practice.

As a core part of the programme you will make a claim for academic credits for your professional experience including Professional Development courses, and / or your professional qualifications, whether credit bearing or not. This then forms the basis for a major project with a focus on dance technique pedagogy.


Why study MA Professional Practice Dance Technique Pedagogy at Middlesex?

As one of the top universities in the UK for dance, we are recognised worldwide for our high calibre of teaching and innovative research. Our department's student satisfaction rating is one of the best in the UK at 94% (NSS, 2013), with academics who are renowned experts in their fields. It is this level of excellence and pioneering approach to the subject of dance that led us to develop the MA Professional Practice in Dance Technique Pedagogy, the first course of its kind in the UK.

Designed to allow you to explore your teaching practice in depth, our course takes dance professionals in the early, middle or later stages of their career and harnesses their experience so that they can evolve their teaching practice with expert guidance from some of the UK's leading dance academics and practitioners.

Developed in collaboration with The Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD), our course begins by reflecting on your prior learning before supporting you to explore a chosen area of dance technique teaching in more depth leading to the development of a major work-based learning project. Delivered part-time through distance learning, we ensure that you are able to develop as a practitioner and maintain your work commitments while you study.

Course highlights:

- Flexibility to shape your studies around your work commitments, individual needs and interests, so you can pursue your ambitions with structured support from experienced practitioners
- You are placed at the centre of your research investigation, making your findings applicable within your own profession and of value to your colleagues, employers and students
- Vibrant dance research culture on campus and online, with influential and internationally respected work in dance pedagogy, contemporary dance technique and choreographic practices and dance fitness.
- Valuable opportunity to make a claim for academic credits against prior formal and informal learning

Entry Requirements

Falmouth University welcomes applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds, and encourages applications from prospective students who do not necessarily hold conventional higher education entry qualifications.*

This process is called Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). Prior learning includes both formal or 'certified' learning (such as training courses not run by universities or colleges) and informal or 'experiential' learning (gained as a result of work experience or self-study).

The APL process lets you provide evidence of your formal learning, professional experience and self-directed study to enable the University to see if it can be recognised as appropriate preparation for entry to a course, or in some cases allow you to claim credits towards a specific qualification.

You'll need to complete an application, which is then assessed. Your application should demonstrate that you are able to study at the right level, and in the same subject area, for the course you have applied to.

In reviewing your application, we will try and assess whether your application is:

Authentic - does it reflect your own achievements and efforts?
Relevant - does the application describe what you have learned?
