Hello, everybody!

My name is Maarja and I'm a Theatre Studies student from Tartu, Estonia. But my main interest is in Dance Studies - analysis, history, critics. It is not possible to study this discipline in Estonian universities so I’ve been looking for other opportunities.

I have found out about the MA Dance courses at the De Montfort University and the University of Surrey, also at the University of Roehampton. But making the choice is very difficult both because of the importance of the subject to me and for economical reasons.

So I'm looking for a little help. The most important questions for me are:

1) Are there more programmes like the ones mentioned above that I should consider? (not necessarily in UK)
2) Are there any possibilities of long distance/correspondence learning?
3) Are there any scholarships available for Dance Studies students?

I would be very grateful for all kind of advice and recommendations.

All the best,
Maarja

Hi Maarja and welcome to CriticalDance - it's always nice to hear from Estonia.

Picking up your points:

1) Are there more programmes like the ones mentioned above that I should consider? (not necessarily in UK)

You should check Laban, as well:

http://www.laban.org/courses/__graduate_school.phtml

and Middlesex:

http://www.mdx.ac.uk/subjects/ddmpa/postgraduate.htm

Not sure about courses outside the UK. Perhaps some of our US readers can tell us about the situation in N. America.

2) Are there any possibilities of long distance/correspondence learning?

I'm not aware of any and I checked the Open University, but no luck.

3) Are there any scholarships available for Dance Studies students?

In general, as far as I am aware, scholarships are not available. However, individual colleges may have some funds available.

Please pile in everyone with other ideas.
