Trinity Laban students

According to statistics published today, students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance are among the most likely to progress into work or further study.

The “Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education” survey published by HESA (the Higher Statistics Agency) reported that 99.1% students who graduated in 2014 from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance’s undergraduate programmes were in employment or further study six months after graduation.*

This remarkable figure was the second highest among all 158 UK-based universities that participated in the survey. It is the third consecutive year in which Trinity Laban has featured in the top three places in the survey, representing an unparalleled consistent story of success.

Professor Anthony Bowne, Trinity Laban Principal, said:

"I’m delighted by this result, but not surprised by it! Here at Trinity Laban we recruit the very best dance and music teachers from around the world, we carefully design our curriculums to prepare our students for the world of work, and we provide inspirational surroundings in which students can grow and find their creative voice. It’s no surprise that we enjoy an international reputation for the world-leading quality of our teaching.

I’m pleased this the HESA survey reveals the success of our incredibly talented, hard-working students. I look forward to hearing all about their many inevitable triumphs in the years to come.”

Trinity Laban is the largest of the UK conservatoires, and the only one to focus on the twin disciplines of music and dance. It numbers around 1,000 students, from 60 countries, who are all currently studying towards professional undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. The institution is based across two sites each boasting landmark buildings: the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Naval College, Greenwich which is home to the Faculty of Music, and the award-winning, purpose-built Laban Building in Deptford, where the Faculty of Dance is located.
