We are honoured to announce Havni Gohil as the recipient of our 2018 Music Gateway Scholarship.

Every year we are proud to run five exclusive Scholarships worth a combined £130,000 to celebrate the fantastic talent that makes up our student body of musicians, producers, engineers, songwriters, technicians and entrepreneurs in the creative industries. With many fantastic applicants this year, Havni Gohil has been chosen at this year’s recipient of our Music Gateway Scholarship.

“It feels really strange to think that I won it but I feel extremely grateful! It makes me feel really proud. It will help my career so much as most people have heard of ACM and to say I’ve actually won the Scholarship there is amazing. It also makes me believe in myself more and makes me think that I can go far with production. I chose to go ACM after I saw the buildings and facilities. It was also recommended to me by my tutors and after I came to the open day – I knew this is where I wanted to be. I’m really enjoying my course so far I’m definitely learning so much and all my tutors are so knowledgeable and are always willing to help.”

Our unparalleled creative industries education stands out due to our learning by doing ethos. Because of this, we put real-world industry training at the heart of our curriculum with our dedicated Industry Link and ADCO (Artist Development, Creative Output) teams. This means our students can hit the ground running and kick-start their careers whilst they are still in education. Part of this industry lead education is made possible by the many partnerships and links we have to the creative industries. With the latest equipment installed at each campus and state-of-the-art facilities available to all students, we offer an unmatched student experience where real-world learning is at our core.

Music Gateway is a global online platform with the goal of empowering creatives and companies all over the world to be the best they can be at what they do. ACM and Music Gateway have enjoyed a fantastic partnership for many years including the ACM Network which is a bespoke, white-labelled platform designed as a hub to help both students and alumni accelerate their career in the music industry. Last year marked the inaugural year for the ACM Music Gateway Scholarship which was set up to celebrate both the partnership between ACM and Music Gateway and the talent displayed here at ACM.

“As a company we were so proud to be able to start giving back to ACM students and the general education sector last year with this partnership so it’s equally exciting that we’re in a position to continue this for a second year running. The Scholarship is voted for by the entire team and it was pretty much a full house for Havni with her energy and passion really shining through. As one of the biggest employers of ACM students, we know that their dedication to creating and enhancing talent is exceptional so it’s great to be a part of someone’s journey in a bigger capacity and we’re looking forward to seeing what she achieves and supporting further.”

Sophie Small, Head of Operations for Music Gateway


The Music Gateway Scholarship is awarded every year to a Music Production student studying at any of our campuses. With close partnerships such as Europe’s largest recording facility, Metropolis Studios, our offering to those looking to enter the production world is unsurpassed. Chosen for her talent, dedication and passion for music production, Scholarship winner Havni will now complete her Music Industry Practice Degree specialising in Music Production at our Guildford campus with no charge and will graduate free from tuition fee debt.

“I’m thrilled that Music Gateway chose Havni as our 2018 Scholarship winner, her application was outstanding and I’m honoured that we can help her launch her career in this exciting sector of the music business.”
