About Trinity Laban:
Trinity Laban, the UK’s first conservatoire of music and dance, was formed in 2005 by the coming together of Trinity College of Music and Laban, two leading centres of music and dance. Building on our distinctive heritage – and our extensive experience in providing innovative education and training in the performing arts – we embrace the new, the experimental and the unexpected. Each year, we train over 1,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students across two amazing sites in the world famous location of Greenwich, London.
As traditional divisions between art forms blur, Trinity Laban students enjoy unique opportunities to collaborate within an environment of creative and technical excellence. As part of a diverse community of performers, composers, choreographers, teachers and researchers, our students explore the ever evolving worlds of music and dance, learning the real world skills they will need to become the artistic leaders of the future.
London is a global hub full of opportunities for you to enjoy and make the most of. Over 200 arts events take place each day and there are over 150 theatres showing plays, musicals, opera, ballet and contemporary dance. London is home to some of the best museums and galleries in the world and the entrance to the most important ones is free of charge. London's excellent transportation links allow you to get across the city quickly, visit the rest of the UK or explore other European countries at a low cost. The city is made up of 21 boroughs and many villages, each with their own characteristics and hidden treasures. What's more, over 300 languages are spoken in London and its rich multicultural heritage has influenced food, architecture and art, to name just a few, so there really is something for everyone.
You'll be receiving a food stipend that is intended to cover reasonable food costs for purchasing groceries and preparing meals. While stipends are issued as promptly as possible, they may not be received by students until their study abroad program begins. Students are expected to be able to cover their living expenses for the first two weeks of their study abroad program and must plan accordingly. Since there is not any on-campus housing, SU students will be living in a shared flat close to campus.
