Funding information

We are now a registered course provider for students who wish to apply for a Professional and Career Development Loan. You may be able to borrow between £300 – £10,000 towards the cost of your study. You can find out more about the loan and apply here.

Our Advanced Diploma is not eligible for UK undergraduate student loans. 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 plan and making this work for you please get in touch.

You might want to consider some different options for funding your time at Abbey Road Institute. EdAid is a recently launched platform which help students raise money towards tuition fees, cost of living whilst studying, books, etc. You can find out more about this opportunity on their website.

I believe the best way to innovate in the future is to learn from the past.

Noah Dayan, Current Student

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!

Jason O’Bryan, Lecturer

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.

Ian Ramage, Lecturer

There is surely no better place to be when you are studying music production and sound engineering!

Tori Sunnucks, Graduate 2016

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.
