The master programme Dance is only accessible if you meet the diploma and language requirements and when you pass the artistic entrance exam. Follow the steps as described underneath
STEP 1. Check the diploma and language requirements
It is required for you to hold a Bachelor diploma in Music and Performing Arts.
If you do not hold a Diploma in a BA in the Arts, but you have experience as a professional dancer, and you have the same competences as the ones obtained at bachelor level, there is an EVC procedure. This procedure is long and should be done in advance prior to the admission procedure.
If you could show through the EVC procedure that you meet the admission requirements, you must then apply for the MA and also pass the artistic entrance exam.
For the Master Dance there are no official language requirements. Although it is strongly advised to have a B2 Dutch or English proficiency level for effective day-to-day communication and high quality written assignments.
For the Educational master in Music and performing arts, major Dance, a Dutch language proficiency level B2 is mandatory.
