Programme overview

This level 7 Diploma offers students a range of diverse experiences both within the school and externally. This diploma is the equivalent of an undergraduate degree.

Secondments and professional placements are an important part of the final year of training, providing the opportunity for students to work with a dance company for up to twelve weeks of term time. Dancers gain industry knowledge and contacts through these secondments, which often lead to professional contracts. Students have the opportunity to perform in the School’s Graduation Season, and contemporary students to create their own choreography for the Choreographic Season. As part of this season, students collaborate with lighting designers, costume designers, production and stage managers from Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School.
