Please note: there will be no intake for Master of Dance in 2017. Information on future intakes will be available mid-2017.
The Master of Dance develops your potential for artistic leadership and enriches your professional practice in the field. The course places a distinctive focus on the integration of performance skills and choreographic practice, both live and screen based, facilitating a holistic physical sensibility underpinned by a commitment to artistic excellence, collaboration and interdisciplinary practice.
Through laboratory-based workshops, seminars, master classes and theoretical subjects, the degree offers a balance of intensive and practical training across three semesters culminating in the realisation of a range of independent, practice-led projects.
It equips you with a high level of professional skill and expertise as a multi-dimensional dance artist, and provides opportunities for connections with other VCA disciplines via cross-disciplinary subjects, collaborative projects and through a range of encounters with practising artists and organisations.
The program welcomes applications from: dancers, performers, improvisers, dance-makers, choreographers and body-based practitioners.

A CSP is subsidised and students pay a contribution determined by the Australian Government. The number of CSPs available is reviewed annually by the University.
Australian Fee Places
If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.
Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.
The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.
Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
If you have completed post-secondary study, you may be eligible for credit/advanced standing towards your studies at the University. Find out more.
