ACM receives Whatuni Award nominations

We are incredibly proud to announce that we have been nominated for two awards by Whatuni.

Having received recognition in the Whatuni categories ‘Giving Back’ and ‘Independent HE’, we are honoured to have been nominated for the Student Choice Awards, to be held April 25th 2019.

Having already received awards for ‘Technology for Learning’ and ‘Course Innovation in Design or Delivery’, alongside being runners-up in the categories ‘Student Collaborations’ and ‘Inspiring Alumni’ at 2018’s Independent Higher Education Awards, we are thrilled that our unique style of creative industries education is being honoured in this way.

At ACM, giving back is a huge part of our ethos. As a leading provider of creative industries education, we provide world-class tutors who pride themselves on giving back by passing their wealth of knowledge on to our next generation of talent at ACM. The creative industries is an incredibly collaborative environment, and as a microcosm of this industry at ACM we welcome all opportunities for collaboration to our student body. Over the past year we have been thrilled that this has included work with I Speak Music (a partnership between ACM, Surrey Arts, and Big Leaf Foundation), where our students got to create a festive single with both the local community and refugees, which was even featured on Sky News, alongside many intergenerational projects which saw our students bring together all corners of the local community. It’s such an honour to be recognised by way of a nomination from Whatuni for ‘Giving Back’.”

With campuses in Guildford, London, and Birmingham, we offer degrees in courses such as Songwriting, Game Development, Music Business, Music Performance, Technical Services and Music Production. As an innovator in the creative industries education sector with a strong focus on learning by doing, we are incredibly proud to be recognised for our work as an independent provider of higher education. In addition to the aforementioned ‘Giving Back’ nomination, We have also been nominated in the ‘Independent HE’ category, which ranks the best independent providers of Higher Education in the UK, as voted for by their students.

“ACM has been a proud provider of independent higher education for many years, so to be nominated by Whatuni for the Independent HE category is a really proud moment for us. As an innovator in the sector paving the way for creative industries education, it’s fantastic to be recognised in this way.”
