Check Out Some of the Highlights from Point Blank’s 2018 QAA Report

Following the success of the recent NSS in which Point Blank achieved a 91% satisfaction rating from those students, we are pleased to report some further positive news from a recent monitoring visit from the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency). The 2018 report was extremely encouraging, shining a light on the work put in by our instructors and backroom staff. Read on for some of the highlights from the report, which you are able to view in full here.

We would like to give a big thank you to all our students involved in Point Blank’s successful QAA review last month – your feedback is all-important in helping us continually improve the student experience at Point Blank! In particular, thanks to our Student Reps who contributed perspectives on the student experience at Point Blank. For those of you who’d like to find out more about the study opportunities at our London school, check out our degree and higher education courses.

As part of the encouraging feedback from the QAA report, our fantastic instructors and their relationships with our students have been praised. All of our instructors have a huge amount of industry experience and a genuine enthusiasm for passing on their knowledge to a new generation. That our students recently voted us the ‘Best Independent HE Provider’ at this year’s WhatUni reflects how well their enthusiasm is received:

“The School continues to build on the good practice…concerning the rigorous selection and induction of music industry professionals employed as sessional instructors.

“Students greatly appreciate the professional experience of their instructors, which helps them improve both academically and creatively.

“Students are enthusiastic about the level of support they receive from Instructors, as well as a series of masterclasses from guest speakers.”

And of course, our industry-standard facilities, which we constantly strive to keep up to date and improve, as well as our groundbreaking virtual learning environment, came in for praise as well.

The School has made significant investment in industry-standard sound and recording equipment. Enhancements to the online resources and infrastructure have also been implemented.”

If you’d like to study at an exciting and dynamic school from instructors who have been there and done it within their own music careers, then get in touch with us here at Point Blank – we run tours every Wednesday and Saturday. We’re constantly striving for improvement, and next semester we’re launching a new degree programme, the BA (Hons) in Music Production and DJ Practice which you can still apply for via clearing. It will be followed by the BA (Hons) in Music Industry Management next year, with much more to follow.
