The BA in Contemporary Dance offered at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) is closely associated with Codarts Rotterdam (formerly known as the Rotterdamse Dansacademie). Cooperation aims to ensure the exchange of know-how, the development of professional networks, and the greatest possible practical relevance of the programme on an international level. Cooperation includes staff and student exchanges, the involvement of Codarts in ZHdK admissions and final examinations, and the establishing of professional networks.

The BA in Contemporary Dance is a cooperation between La Manufacture, University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO) and Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). Both partners run their programmes independently within the cooperation. All students attend theory classes at the Department of Dance Studies, Institute of Theatre Studies, University of Bern. The BA in Contemporary Dance is also an international cooperation programme between ZHdK and Codarts Rotterdam. La Manufacture maintains a partnership with P.A.R.T.S. Brussels. The ZHdK programme benefits from the proximity of Zurich Dance Academy (taZ), which is also part of the ZHdK Department of Performing Arts and Film.
