The Music Gateway Production Scholarship

The Music Gateway Production Scholarship rewards one Audio Production student at ACM London, ACM Guildford or ACM Birmingham with support for up to 3 years of study, worth £27,000.

The scholarship rewards technical excellence and innovation in Audio Production for applicants to Degree programmes at ACM London, ACM Guildford or ACM Birmingham, paying for a student’s entire tuition fees for the duration of their study.

Music Gateway and ACM, in this respect, make for the perfect partnership, sharing a passion for nurturing creative minds and helping people succeed in their desired careers.

Whether they make the music, manage the music, buy the music or sell the music, the Music Gateway platform empowers its users to store all of their music, media and projects in one space whilst connecting with like-minded people and accessing high level opportunities. The platform is in use by ACM’s entire student body, which represents all corners of the industry that they one day want to work in.

ACM has also been an invaluable channel of employment for Music Gateway, with 6 staff members being ACM graduates. Regular work experience is also offered to ACM students who are enthusiastic, motivated and keen to learn about the wider industry.

“We are very pleased to be joining forces with ACM to bring this scholarship to life. We absolutely love everything ACM has to offer its students and we cannot wait to provide this opportunity for the right student willing to prove themselves in this very challenging industry. It is with this that we hope to empower the next generation of creatives and kickstart an eager student’s career with such amazing financial support.” Jon Skinner, CEO & Founder of Music Gateway

Executive Chairman of ACM, Kainne Clements, said “We’re privileged to work with Music Gateway on this enabling opportunity for our audio production students, especially since we believe that our blend of industry education should be accessible to everybody who is committed to a career in music. We’re all very much looking forward to reviewing the scholarship entries and to awarding the scholarship to the lucky recipient this September.”

How To Apply for The Music Gateway Scholarship:

1. If you’re a wiz at Audio Production, follow these instructions to apply for our Music Gateway Scholarship. Firstly, you must be on a Production course at either ACM Guildford, London or Birmingham (this means locked in firm on UCAS and your ACM contract sent back!). If you’re not already a student, fear not, simply follow the instructions on our Apply page to get your ACM journey started. Applicants to the relevant ‘Level 0’ / Foundation Year precursors at ACM Guildford will also be accepted.

2. Send an email to with the subject line “Music Gateway Production Scholarship Submission from Your Name”. Make sure the email contains a link to a video that best captures your technical and innovational abilities as a producer through the showcasing of one or more tracks (or a mix, if you prefer). These must be wholly produced by you.

Video Tips:

  • Be sure to introduce yourself – we want to know who you are!

  • Explain to us all about your history as a producer and what your ambitions are.

  • Tell us what winning the Scholarship would mean to you.

  • Keep in mind we are only able to consider one track per applicant so chose a track that shows off your best technical skills. Please do not send us collaborative piece of production work, we want to see what you can do. However, we will accept other performers participating on your track.

  • Don’t worry about the quality of your video production, we will only judge the quality of the audio. Nevertheless, we do welcome videos that demonstrate the best of all your creative skills, so don’t hold back.  Entries must be received by the end of Friday 28th June 2019.

3. After your email submission, entries will be shortlisted by a panel of ACM judges, before being reviewed by members of the Music Gateway team, when the winner be announced.

From ACM and Music Gateway, we wish you the very best of luck.
