Point Blank Music School students can access full funding thanks to new status.
Point Blank Music School is committed to delivering the very best music education available whilst ensuring Value For Money for each and every one of our students.
We strive to provide world-class academic teaching, applied practical learning, industry insight and opportunities, and an outstanding, enriching experience that enables students from any background to build successful careers in the music industry.
We believe the only barrier to success should be the limit of your own ambition, talent and imagination and that people from all backgrounds have the same rights to the best education.
We are therefore very pleased to announce that this week our application to the Office for Students to join the Approved (Fee Cap) category on the register of higher education providers in the UK has been successful.
This means that all eligible prospective students can apply to have their full course fees covered by a student loan, helping us break down barriers in music education and reach talented individuals who otherwise may not have entered Higher Education or had the opportunity to study with Point Blank.
Until now, the maximum loan available left students in receipt of a student loan still needing to pay a top-up fee (around a third of the total), which prevented some people from joining our courses and reaching their full potential – this is now no longer the case.
Following the announcement, Point Blank Managing Director, Jules Brookes said:
“Entering the Approved (Fee Cap) category constitutes a great Opening of the Doors for the School and fantastic news for our current and future students. We will now be able to welcome students from an even more diverse range of backgrounds, driving us towards achieving our aim of continually improving equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups in the School and within Higher Education. This can only be good news for the music you make with us”.
