how we’ve responded to COVID-19 at Abbey Road Institute
At the start of 2021, England entered lockdown again to slow down the spread of Covid-19, with the UK government confirming the closure of schools, colleges and universities and requiring education to take place online.
As of 8 March 2021, these restrictions have relaxed again and our students are now accessing the facilities both on-campus and at Studio 13 in West London where we have additional studio space. Students are required to work on their own or in small groups as well as adhere to social distancing and covid secure measures at all time. Teaching is taking place using blended learning, with some classes online and some classes taught in person.
Access to our facilities follows and complies with careful planning and full risk assessments which have taken place and are reviewed on an ongoing basis adhering to the latest guidance from the government and World Health Organisation.
We’ll be updating this page and our social media channels with status updates as things progress. Our team are still here, working from home and available to speak with you. If you have any questions please drop us an email email@example.com
We’ve also included some useful FAQ’s below to offer further guidance if you’re applying to study with us at this time. You can also visit our much more detailed dedicated FAQ page for general questions about studying with us.
I want to apply for the Advanced diploma in music production and sound engineering. Has the application process changed?
We are open and taking applications for our Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering as usual. Our team are mainly working from home and are available to help guide you through the application process.
You can also find guidance on what you need to do to apply on the entry requirements section of the course page. You should gather together all the required documents and submit them, as usual, using our online application portal. We are holding all application interviews online instead of in person at our campus. The content and format of the interview will still be the same, except that we will meet you online rather than in person (through Skype or Zoom). If your application is successful and moves to the next stages we will send you more information about this. If you need any support or guidance for the online interview process please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
I’d like to see the studio and teaching facilities at the campus. When can I come in for a tour?
At the moment our London campus is temporarily closed to any visitors. Whilst we cannot offer tours in the next few weeks we’re still here and very happy to speak with you about what it’s like to study with us and provide you with lots of useful information on the course, how to apply and future careers. We are giving virtual 121s with our Campus Manager and Student Administrator – email us to book a day and time that suits you via email@example.com.
You can also visit the location page of our website so that you can see our teaching spaces, studio, production rooms and get an idea of all of the gear you’ll have access to as a student. We are also pleased to announce that we’ll be moving into Angel Studios in Islington this summer, 2021 and you can find out more about the move on our blog. We’re looking forward to inviting you to our campus in the future.
