Course content

The MA Creative Practice is intended to allow both the experienced and the recent graduate creative individual to develop and promote their 'voice' in a safe and supportive environment. The open modular format is designed so that you can select those topics that most interest you or which are most suitable for your career intentions. You will have the opportunity to study and practice with students from other programmes.

There are two pathways available, one more self-determined than the other and each with its own distinctive character. The range of modules available for study can be found on our website . You will need to indicate on the extended application form your module preference and also a second choice in case your first choice is not available. The 'taught' elements of this programme form year one of the MFA programme.

The MA Creative Practice: Self-Selected Pathway programme enables you to choose your own path of study-effectively to create your own programme according to your needs and interests-selecting from a range of available modules delivered at Trinity Laban's magnificent facility in South East London.

(Note: some modules have restricted entry, usually by audition. Please see the Module Specifications on our website for more information.)
