Student support

A combination of peer and tutor support is available throughout the training. Given the small size of our two campuses, support is readily accessible.

Weekly timetabled group practice sessions (without teachers) provide opportunities for peer sharing, learning and support.

Combined sessions, project work, whole school meetings etc encourage interactions and support between students of the different year groups.

One-on-one sessions with teachers, whilst working on solo pieces, offer students individualised learning and support.

Students attend individual reviews with their teachers each term, and group reviews with tutors take place throughout the year. These sessions serve an important role in terms of mutual feedback and student support.

In addition, all tutors are available for support during term time and students are encouraged to ask questions or if needed, make appointments for extra tutorials.

Dedicated Student Support

Each student has a unique background history. Learning to care for your mental, emotional and physical health is an important part of the training.

We encourage you to be open about any particular needs or struggles you may have. If appropriate, the four main Eurythmy tutors can signpost you to a network of wellness professionals, therapists, Eurythmy therapists and doctors.

At the Peredur Eurythmy Campus there is also the option to talk to the art teacher, who is a trained art therapist. At the West Midlands Eurythmy Campus, supporters of the Eurythmy school, who reside locally, regularly meet up with the first year students in order to offer support.

Academic Support and tutorial

All students are given support as part of their academic studies to gain confidence in researching, note taking, writing and referencing, as well as thinking about learning styles and ways of organising study time. If necessary, individualised support can be made available.

Accommodation

The Peredur Centre, where the Peredur Eurythmy Campus is based, offers student accommodation with shared communal facilities. Students, who choose to reside off campus, are offered guidance with finding accommodation.

The West Midlands Eurythmy Campus does not have designated student accommodation, but help is offered for new students to find accommodation within the local community.

English as an additional language

Eurythmy UK welcomes students from the UK as well as the international community. Students, who have English as an additional language, have an opportunity to develop their skills during daily communications and within the course curriculum. Lessons in speech and drama as well as academic study lesson involving reading and comprehension are particularly helpful in acquiring language skills. If necessary, a referral for individualised language teaching can be made.

Support for students with a disability or learning disability

Eurythmy UK welcomes applications from students with disabilities and we are committed to admitting and supporting students with a disability.

If you are dyslexic or have another specific learning difficulties, we encourage you talk to us about your needs, so that we can put measures in place to support you.

Care Leavers

Eurythmy UK is committed to admitting and supporting students regardless of background. If you have been in care or are estranged from your family, we understand that you may have some extra practical aspects to consider when starting further / higher education. Please share your situation openly with our teachers so that they can offer the relevant help. You are also likely to find that the structure of our course as well as the small student numbers will provide you with a supportive learning environment.

Professional Post-Graduate Pathways

The four-year Vocational Training in Eurythmy is a requirement for a career in Eurythmy. Many students begin their studies without having a clear career path in mind. Even if they do, their career goals often change as their skills & interests develop or change during the training.

Potential post-graduate pathways are:

Eurythmy as a performing art

Eurythmy UK offers post-graduate experience in performing to suitably talented graduate Eurythmists. Similar opportunities are available at other eurythmy training colleges all over the world.

Highly trained and talented Eurythmy performers work with professional stage groups worldwide.

Eurythmy teaching in schools

The Diploma in Eurythmy qualifies graduates to teach Eurythmy to children and young people in Waldorf or Rudolf Steiner kindergartens and schools in the UK. Additional training and support through mentorship or a teaching training programme is advised.

MA in Educational Research Eurythmy

An MA in eurythmy from the Alanus University is available in Sussex. It is offered on a part-time, modular basis.

“The Master’s programme aims to develop and cultivate the transformative aspects of education and the art of eurythmy in the broadest sense. On the one hand, the Master’s programme facilitates educational research competence and, on the other, it aims to enhance eurythmical expertise. Reflection on eurythmy and teaching in a contemporary context enlivens professional activities and develops new ways of seeing and thinking about eurythmy, education and art. It is empowering and builds both competence and confidence. Student research projects will be shaped according to the questions, contexts, and individual initiative students bring with them from their own professional contexts.

It is open to all eurythmists working in schools, special needs homes, or with adults in social contexts such as teacher trainings, eurythmy trainings, workshops and courses for the public, who wish to deepen and expand their work through a practice-based research Master’s.”

To become a Eurythmy therapist, specialist training is required in addition to the Diploma in Eurythmy.

A part-time Eurythmy therapy training, which leads to an MA, is available in Sussex. The training consists of 5 blocks of lessons and workshops combined with periods of observation and practice in between. The training awards an MA in Eurythmy Therapy, which is awarded by Alanus University.

Eurythmy for people with additional needs

The Diploma in Eurythmy opens the door to working with children and adults with additional needs. This can be described as follows:

“Eurythmy for people with learning disabilities is based on the same archetypal movements as for everyone else, though some exercises may be adapted to suit the needs and abilities of everyone in the session. It is inspired by life qualities and rhythms and taught through the transformative power of movement, music and language. This approach addresses the person in their true humanity as a social being of spiritual origin. Approaches to developing through eurythmy allows the person with learning disabilities to access their sense of life and their ability to think and to act, addressing these capacities through a weaving quality. The individual manifestations of these processes are strengthened through working and collaborating as a group. The mood needed in order to learn these movements is a relaxed and joyful focus.

The quality of movement to strive for in Eurythmy is one of grace, expression and playful creativity. This allows each person taking part in a Eurythmy session to move towards a sense of beauty and harmony, and facilitates the opportunity to find uprightness, dexterity, the possibility to listen and an awareness of others.
Depending on the setting it may be possible to have one-to-one sessions, which have the benefit of being completely adapted to the individual, or to take part in a group, which adds a more social aspect.”

Having an additional training in Eurythmy therapy in this setting may be helpful.

Eurythmy in organisations

”Working with Eurythmy in organisations brings a new training technique to help management and employees create an enterprise that is dynamic, responsive and efficient. Eurythmy works best when taken up in an on-going process to develop awareness, but is also extremely effective as one-off workshops where a new beginning or a break in routine is needed.

Eurythmy is a superb support to any organisational change process and in helping with interpersonal relations and communication. It is a very effective Team Building tool as it brings an awareness to team dynamics and how each person contributes to the team. Bringing consciousness to elements such as giving and receiving, trust and responsibility and the need to be aware of the needs of others in order for the team to work together harmoniously, Eurythmy can strengthen and bring harmony to the social interactions within an organisation.”
