Our student body includes young artists from over 60 countries, and we are proud of the vibrant and culturally diverse atmosphere this creates.
As an international student, you will become part of a close community of outstanding music and dance artists and practitioners from all over the world. You will have the chance to share and learn from each other’s unique experiences and enhance your creativity. Our thriving Students’ Union will help you meet people from all over the world, make life-long friends and experience life in London, considered by many to be the cultural capital of the world.
We want our international students to enjoy their time at Trinity Laban and make the most of the academic, personal and social opportunities available here. Living away from home can be a big change and adapting to a different country can be a little confusing at times. We are here to help you if you have questions or come across any difficulties while you are with us, and ensure you can access the full range of student support available.
At the beginning of your studies, you will be invited to participate in social events to help you settle in and meet your fellow students. We will also provide you with a range of guidance material to help you prepare to study in the UK as well as information on accommodation, opening a bank account, insurance, payment of fees and managing money.
English Language Support
Free English language support classes are provided for students whose first language is not English and for students with a learning disability (e.g. dyslexia).
Once enrolled on one of our programmes, you can access support from your English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Tutor. Depending on the programme, this is through timetabled classes or one-to-one tutorials. Draft-checking of written assignments is available, as is help in any area where your level of English may be causing you problems. Support is available for all programmes (except for the Teaching Musician programme and other courses within the Learning and Participation department).
When you arrive
We hold a series of events specifically for international students to help you settle in at Trinity Laban. In previous years we have hosted traditional English tea parties, welcome picnics and games nights, to give you the chance to mingle with fellow international students in a relaxed atmosphere, with food, drink and lots of fun.

Student Testimonial (Music)
"At Trinity Laban the environment is very positive. The staff are extremely helpful, everyone is very friendly and supportive and the facilities are brilliant.”
Gen Li, Postgraduate Advanced Diploma, Piano
Student Testimonial (Dance)
"One of the most important parts of being on this course for me is getting to meet people from different countries, different backgrounds and different ages, with different ideas about what they want to do with dance. Getting to collaborate with each other has been really inspiring... we can just keep bouncing ideas back and forth off each other.”
Katie Rank, MA Choreography
