You will have practical classes, lectures, seminars and tutorials. Performance and choreography modules have higher class-contact time, while classroom-based modules have fewer contact hours but require independent study where you read, research, write and prepare work in your own time.
You will have the opportunity to develop computing skills using our e-learning facilities, in addition to word-processing, spreadsheet and database packages.
You will also be able to participate in dance classes, events, performances, seminars and residencies on campus, including extracurricular classes in Guildford School of Acting’s evening programme.
These are open not only to students studying Dance, Culture and Choreography, but also to the wider University community and the general public. This provides you with a lively and challenging dance environment.
Modules are assessed in a format that is most suited to the content and structure of each. We therefore use a variety of assessment methods, such as essays, portfolios, seminar presentations, lecture demonstrations and performances.
Our Dance degree programmes are well resourced and include the PATS dance studio and the state-of-the-art Ivy Arts Centre. The campus is home to a unique archive and the National Resource Centre for Dance.
All students are invited to join the Actual Size Dance Company - the University of Surrey Dance Company.
