International Payments

If you are paying your fees from outside the UK, please make sure that you set up the transfer so that any international payment fees are deducted from your account. If the full payment for your fees is not received in our account, any shortfall will be advised to you and will need to be settled subsequently.

To avoid incurring high transfer fees, previous students have found that Wise offers a competitive service for making international payments.

Funding Information

Our Advanced Diploma is not eligible for UK undergraduate student loans (tuition fees or maintenance loans available from the government). Lots of our students choose to spread the cost of the course during their time with us, to help with financing their studies. If you’d like to chat with us about the payment plans and making this work for you please get in touch.

Abbey Road Scholarship Programme

In 2020 Abbey Road Studios launched the Abbey Road Scholarship Programme to provide for two black British students to study on our Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering, followed by a year-long engineering work placement at Abbey Road Studios.

The annual Scholarship programme covers the full cost of the course fees and contributes towards living expenses for two black British students to study with us. For more information about the scholarship, the eligibility criteria and how to apply, visit our dedicated Abbey Road Scholarship page. Applications are now currently closed

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!
