We encourage applications from a wide range of backgrounds and levels of experience. If you have passion for music and how it’s produced, and meet the entry requirements listed below then we want to hear from you!
Your application is your opportunity to demonstrate that you meet the entry requirements necessary to study on the course. So that we can assess your suitability for the course and offer you an interview you will need to include the following documents:
To be accepted onto a course at Abbey Road Institute London, you must be able to demonstrate an effective command of the English language. While it is not an entry requirement, submitting an English language qualifications (e.g. IELTS) will strengthen your application.
If you’d like to apply but are unsure if you meet the requirements please get in touch for an initial consultation with one of our course advisers. You may also wish to consider attending one of our forthcoming Open Days where you will be able to meet the team and find out how Abbey Road Institute can help you to build a rewarding career working with sound.
International Students (Tier-4)
Unfortunately at present students from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) are unable to obtain a Tier-4 visa to study at Abbey Road Institute in London. To apply to study with us you must hold a valid EEA passport. The EEA includes European Union (EU) countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
In some circumstances, you may be eligible for a Tier-5 “Youth Mobility Visa”. You can apply for this visa if you’re aged between 18 – 30 and from the following countries: Australia, Canada, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Republic of Korea or Taiwan. Please visit the UK government website for further information on eligibility and how to apply.
Now for the good news – We are working towards becoming a Tier-4 licensed sponsor in 2018. If you are from outside the EEA we encourage you to start an application to study with us in 2019. If you would like to take a course this year you may wish to get in touch with our Institute’s in Paris and Amsterdam as you may also be eligible to study at one of their campuses.
I believe the best way to innovate in the future is to learn from the past.
It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!
Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.
There is surely no better place to be when you are studying music production and sound engineering!
On the first day of the course it was clear that I had found my tribe; we’re like a family, and it’s uncanny how everyone gets on creatively.
