Erasmus+ Incoming Students

If you are a student studying at a conservatoire within the European Union that is a member of the Erasmus+ programme, Trinity Laban would be delighted to welcome your Erasmus+ exchange application. To be considered for entry within this scheme, you must be a current student at an eligible institution, and need to audition in your principal study discipline.

You will join either the BMus (Hons), BA (Hons) Musical Theatre, BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance, or Masters programmes in Performance, and undertake all modules and assessments as appropriate to your year of study. Trinity Laban operates the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which enables you to achieve graded credit for each module you undertake once you have completed the assessment requirements.

Student Testimonial

"The teaching here is really different to what we have in Germany…there is a much wider choice of classes, and it’s really interesting to have things like CoLab, for example."

Claudia Zimmermann, Erasmus+, viola

Application procedure

In order to apply for Trinity Laban's Erasmus+ exchange programme, you should talk to the Erasmus+ coordinators at your home institution. They will be able to tell you whether your institution has an exchange partnership with Trinity Laban. If your institution does not have a partnership with Trinity Laban, we may still be able to consider your application. If your application is successful, we will then sign an agreement with your institution.

The deadline for receiving applications for the Erasmus+ Programme is 1 April.

However, we recommend you send your application to us as soon as you have put together your full application, as specified below, and have received approval from your home institution.

PLEASE NOTE: Trinity Laban no longer accepts any applications sent by post.
