Join us at ACM Guildford’s Diploma Open Day on Sunday 22nd January 2017

If you’re thinking about studying a Diploma at ACM Guildford next year, then come and join us at our very special Diploma Open Day on Sunday 22nd January. The day starts at 11am and is a great opportunity to find out first-hand exactly what being an ACM Guildford Diploma student means.

You’ll be able to tour our world-class industry-standard facilities, meet your potential tutors, check out our teaching, recording and rehearsal studios, visit the Student Union and have all your questions answered. You can also tell us about your plans for a music career and we’ll discuss how ACM Guildford can help you make it happen.

ACM’s Level 3  Extended Diploma course is designed to give its students a focused learning experience, providing the skills and knowledge necessary for continuing study at Higher Education level or building a career as a Musician. The course has been developed to be studied in the following paths: Music Performance (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Keys), Music Technology, Music Business. Delivered over two years, the Level 3 Extended Diploma gives students an opportunity to gain the equivalent to three A* grades at A-Level.

The ACM Guildford Level 2 Diploma is available to students who may need to resit GCSEs. It’s specifically been developed to provide an understanding of music performance and production in preparation for a career in the music industry, while at the same time giving students the opportunity to retake their GCSE qualifications in English and Maths.

The good news is that Diplomas are free to those under the age of 18 and once you’re on the course, there are no further fees to pay. Funding is subject to eligibility criteria but in general, if you’re under 18 on 31st August 2017, the government will fully fund your studies with ACM Guildford for the entire two-year Extended Diploma period. Those who’ll be 18 on 31st August 2017 needn’t feel left out though – the government will fund one year of your studies at Level 3.

To book your place, please visit our Open Day page today. But hurry – spaces are limited, so apply now to avoid disappointment.
