This year has been jam-packed with announcements, events and exciting news from the Point Blank universe but there are some moments that we were particularly proud to share with you. 2018 saw us announce new courses, hosted some amazing panels and even shared our plans to open a brand new school. Although it’s been tough to pinpoint the top 3 moments of PB in 2018 we’ve done our best to highlight some of our favourites below.
Point Blank to Launch in Hangzhou, China
2019 will see the launch of our first ever Point Blank school in China. The new institution will open in the nation’s creative capital of Hangzhou as part of a new partnership with NetEase FEVER, a company which promotes the production and reach of electronic music through events and education. Point Blank China will focus heavily on year-long Music Production & Sound Engineering Diploma which will include the likes of music production, DJ skills, music composition, sound design, sound engineering, the art of mixing, audio for games, mastering and more.
Point Blank Ibiza Announce Two New Courses
Earlier this summer we were excited to tell our students that we will be introducing two new courses to our sought-after Ibiza summer school. What could be better for an aspiring DJ/Producer to learn the tricks of the trade by day then party by night in one of the music industry’s most iconic locations? Our new courses will cater to both beginners and advanced students with the introduction of our Advanced DJ/Producer and DJ/Radio, as well as the return of the DJ/Producer course from last year.
Point Blank Wins ‘Best Independent HE’ at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards
Here at Point Blank, we pride ourselves on being the best at what we do. With that said, this year we were crowned the winners of the Best Independent HE award at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards. The WUSCAs are the annual celebration of student satisfaction in higher education and the winners are voted for by the students themselves. In addition to this triumphant moment, just last month we were winners of the ‘Exporting Education’ category award for Independent Higher Education.
