Trinity Laban rated as a “world-leading” teaching institution

Fri 6 May 2016

We are delighted to announce that HEFCE has today rated Trinity Laban as a “world-leading” teaching institution.

The rating came about as part of HEFCE’s recent review of its Institution Specific Targeted Allocation – the extra funding that it awards to a few exceptional specialist institutions, and will continue to award to Trinity Laban.

It backs up other indicators of Trinity Laban’s success, such as last week’s triumphs by two amazing undergraduates: James Newby was joint first prize winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Awards, while Moses Boyd’s duo was named UK Jazz Act of the Year at the Jazz FM Awards.

Professor Anthony Bowne, Principal of Trinity Laban, commented: “I’m delighted that HEFCE’s review has confirmed what I already know well, which is that we are a world leader in performing arts education. Following on from our recent successes in the Research Excellence Framework and in gaining Taught Degree Awarding Powers, this further verifies how well we are performing as an institution. In particular, this a great tribute to our magnificent staff, and also to our incredible students and alumni. As always, I’m proud to be a part of this great community of talented and generous creative artists. I look forward to working with HEFCE on our continuing endeavours to offer a world-leading training to future generations of students from the widest variety of backgrounds.”
