Postgraduate Policies and Procedures
Central is an independent training organisation and charity, registered charity number 285398. From 9 June Central joined the registered Office for Students English higher education providers. From 1 August all undergraduate and postgraduate students studying at Central will be registered with Central School of Ballet rather than the Conservatoire of Dance and Drama. All degree courses will continue to be validated by the University of Kent and this change will have minimal impact on Central’s training and the student experience.
Central has been working towards this goal over an 18 month period and acceptance by the Office for Students verifies that the school provides well-designed courses that deliver high quality academic experience for all students, ensures students’ outcomes are valued by employers or enable further study, and awards qualifications that hold their value over time. This path towards greater autonomy and independence will allow the school to respond dynamically to the changing needs of the dance world, as well as engage in new partnerships and activities locally, nationally and internationally.
