Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance is the UK’s only conservatoire of music and contemporary dance. Trinity Laban was formed in 2005 from the merger of two of the UK’s most famous institutions: Trinity College of Music (founded 1872) and Laban (founded 1958).
Trinity Laban is a dynamic and diverse international community of 1,000 students from more than 60 countries, many of whom choose to live in our nearby halls of residence. We are situated by the river in Greenwich, one of the most attractive and vibrant parts of London. Our surrounding neighbourhood provides the best of both worlds: plenty of space to think and breathe plus easy and quick access into the centre of London, the world’s greatest cultural city.
Our buildings are second to none. Our faculty of music is located in a simply stunning 17th-century building within a World Heritage Site: the Old Royal Naval College, designed by Christopher Wren. The faculty is celebrated for its fine facilities, including practice rooms equipped with superb pianos, the outstanding Jerwood Library of the Performing Arts and the magnificent concert halls in nearby Blackheath. Our faculty of dance is based in the award-winning Laban Building, built in 2003 as a bespoke centre for dance, and boasting incredible state-of-the-art facilities such as a 300-seat theatre plus intimate studio theatre, 13 purpose-built dance studios and the largest dance library and archive in Europe. Both faculty buildings have cafés plus indoor and outdoor communal spaces.
Key features of study at Trinity Laban include:
- World-class teaching from renowned teachers at the top of their profession, including respected soloists, leading composers, world-class dancers and choreographers, and principal players from major orchestras
- A range of programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, including both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees
- Unique opportunities for cross-arts collaborations between dance and music, such as in our internationally celebrated student-led CoLab festival
- A wealth of performance opportunities for dancers and musicians: we present over 600 performances a year in our own buildings, as well as in London’s most famous performance venues and beyond
- A friendly and supportive atmosphere that helps our students realise their potential
- An active Students’ Union which puts on numerous events
- A busy Student Services department which provides valuable advice, and helps international students feel at home
Trinity Laban students enjoy one of the highest levels of graduate employability in the UK: almost 99% of those leaving our undergraduate programmes in 2013 reported that they were in
employment or further study six months after graduation. We support our students and alumni by offering a huge range of opportunities and career advice. Our graduates typically enjoy careers as performers, composers, choreographers, teachers, academics, administrators, artistic leaders, music or dance therapists, and community arts workers.
