UCAS Clearing Dramas? Consider Point Blank’s Affordable Online Music Degrees…

The summer scrum for Higher Education places is now underway. But anyone currently intent on finding the fabled ‘good place’ somewhere – (anywhere?!) would do well to consider the innovative online degree options from Point Blank Music School.

Studying this degree programme online incorporates the most cutting edge learning techniques and technology in the world right now. You can complete your degree with a third year of study at Middlesex University – either on campus or continuing online.

Choosing to study for a music industry career in this way has some very attractive financial benefits too:

Firstly, the tuition fees are highly manageable, coming in at a saving of just under 60% on the price of a full degree (that’s a saving of £5,500 per year in tuition fees alone not counting accommodation and living expenses).

Secondly, students can keep their on-going living costs low by studying from home, wherever that may be based and the course format is also flexible enough to fit around any work commitments.

This highly sustainable financial set-up fits modern lifestyles and budgets more closely than many traditional study methods, yet still features formal academic learning processes and eventual qualifications.

Our team of industry professionals are all experts in their respective fields, from studio production to marketing and artist/label management, so they provide an outstanding insight into how the music industry works today.

We have close working relationships with key record labels and offer an unrivalled network of contacts for our student community. Regular guest tutors offer masterclasses at our studios which are streamed live online. Former guests have included Claude Vonstroke, Basement Jaxx, Radio 1’s Annie Mac, legendary DJ Carl Cox and hip hop / grime sensation Wretch 32.

Students gain qualifications in transferable skills that they can put to immediate use in the ‘real world’ when it comes to looking for employment in the rapidly evolving world of music. We also offer on-going support via our in-house record label, regular live event promotions and further training in specific areas of interest.

This high level skills training is ideal for anyone serious about a career in music, whether they have just received their A-levels or are mature students looking to focus their professional sights on the this industry.

The videos above and below explain more about how the courses work, including our unique DVR system whereby students enjoy regular 1-2-1 feedback on their work from both tutors and others on the course.

Point Blank’s CertHE and DipHE courses can be combined with the following full Honours qualifications at Middlesex University:

BMus (Hons) Popular Music

BA (Hons) Music and Arts Management

BA (Hons) Professional Practice

This could be just what you’ve been waiting for. Contact the Course Advisors at Point Blank now on for even more info on this amazing way to study for a career in the music industry.
