Applicants to this programme should have a good degree (2:1 or above) in a dance-related subject. We are also open to applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully. This is done through a process called the Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) and more information can be given by the University of Salford Admissions team.
