New figures out today show that for the second year in a row 99%* of the undergraduates from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance were in employment or in further study six months after graduating.

The HESA Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education 2012-13 survey, published today, puts Trinity Laban's employability rating at 98.8%.

Trinity Laban Principal, Professor Anthony Bowne, said he was delighted with the result:

"Our music and dance students are among the best in the world, and Trinity Laban continues to recruit the very best international teachers to guide and support them in their ambitions.

"The creative world has always been a competitive one, but the figures prove that we continue to lead the way in producing high quality, entrepreneurial dancers and musicians. Strong employability figures like ours provide a real sense of confidence for prospective students, parents and teachers."

Trinity Laban is the largest of the UK conservatoires and the only one to focus on the twin disciplines of music and dance. Around 1,000 students, from 60 countries, study towards professional undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.

The exciting performances and groundbreaking education, community and social inclusion work make Trinity Laban a leader in the advancement of creative artistic practice, with unprecedented opportunities for collaboration between instrumentalists, singers, composers, dancers and choreographers.
