How to apply.
All students need to attend their local Academy of Music and Sound centre for a playing assessment and interview with our management team. All candidates are required to have GCSE Maths and English to grade 4/C or above and have the relevant level of instrument ability, which can be demonstrated during the assessment.
A decision regarding suitability is often given on the day of assessment and a conditional place on the course offered. Our staff can then help you complete the application process there and then if you wish.
If a student doesn’t initially have the relevant level of instrument knowledge and ability, they can be re-assessed at any time before the start of the course.
Our Further Education courses are free-of-charge to any 16-18 year old students, if they haven’t completed the same level course anywhere previously. There are costs for students who are 19 and over. These charges do vary depending on a student’s personal circumstances and it is advised that you discuss your position with a member of our staff to confirm your position.
Progression can be into employment , industry training or onto Higher Education courses.
All of our F.E courses carry UCAS points that can be carried forward to help you apply for University/ higher education courses. (HNC/HND, Foundation degree, Degree, B.A.Top-up), this includes all of our H.E courses and many from other universities and colleges.
