Dance Scientist


Studying at Trinity Laban is the best decision I've ever made.

Seeing as the the MSc programme at Trinity Laban is largely leading the field of dance science, the institution has provided the opportunity to learn directly from top researchers in the field through guest lectures and workshop opportunities. Additionally, our equipment and facilities are state of the art and allow for practical application of the material being studied.

I love the rich cultural and historical context that studying in London offers. Living in Greenwich is an ideal location for an international student like myself because of its accessibility to the Trinity Laban campus’ and  close proximity to central London.

The services at Laban Health are outstanding. The therapists are trained to work with performer-specific bodies and their quality of work is evident from the first appointment. It wasn’t until I saw one of the Laban therapists that my issues subsided after years of failed attempts to resolve and rehabilitate my dance-related injuries by other medical professionals.

McMillan Student Village has been a convenient and comfortable place to live. The process of applying was easy and the staff have ensured international students like myself feel safe and at home here. It’s also been a great way to meet other students, not just from Trinity Laban, but surrounding universities as well.

Within Trinity Laban there are unique opportunities to get involved in ways that schooling itself cannot provide. I’ve had the privilege to serve as a Student Ambassador, representing the conservatoire at VIP events, donor luncheons, and creating relationships with local and national media. This experience has helped shape my professional career, challenged me in new ways, and helped me grow personally and professionally.

Studying at Trinity Laban is the best decision I’ve ever made.
