i'm not doing a dance degree but i've done a lil research for you.
The university of Surrey offers a Dance and Culture BA (Hons) (W552) which she'd need ABB or 280 points.
The university of Doncaster offers a performing arts (dance) degree BA degree and it's only 6,000 pounds a year compared to surrey uni which charges 9,000 pound a year.

Both these degrees look good.

The top 10 dance unis are:
1 Bristol
2 Warwick
3 Glasgow
4 Surrey
5 Royal Holloway
6 Lancaster
7 Kent
8 East Anglia
9 Loughborough
10 Exeter

So surrey is in the top half of the top 10 which makes it a good uni imo.

Hope this helps x

In reply to the person who replied first, Doncaster uni however isn't an actual uni, it is a university sector college. Meaning it appears in none of the league tables, which then means that when she leaves university employers might not be so keen. Reputation of the uni does contribute.

Urm...Bristol does not do a BA (Hons) Dance Degree... Neither does Warwick or Exeter or Kent or Loughborough or Lancaster...my point is, there's probably about 3 on your list that actually offer a BA (Hons) Dance Degree, yes, these all offer PERFORMANCE or DRAMA degrees but almost none of them offer a Dance Degree. Appreciative of the effort but maybe do some more research before you send people on a wild goose chase, reviewing universities that don't even actually offer the degree course they have chosen. Obviously this is an old thread but for people reading it could be misleading, as someone who is applying for a dance degree and has done extensive research my recommendations would be - Coventry (13th in the league table, behind places such as London Contemporary Dance School and Trinity Laban etc) and for a more training intensive course; Chichester University BA (Hons) Dance Performance (or BA (Hons) Dance for a less specialised approach) and for a university with lower grade boundaries but still training intensive; University of South Wales
