Rewarding Excellence and Increasing Accessibility.

Scholarships worth more than £130,000 available for September 2018 study.

ACM works hard to make its unique music industry education offering affordable and accessible to all those who are committed and ready to learn.

We don’t seek perfection. Indeed, we believe that perfection in the arts is something that you should always be on the road towards, but never expect to achieve. We believe that there is always more work that you can undertake to better your craft and that nobody is ever done learning, but where you, as a prospective student, are displaying signs of academic, creative and/or entrepreneurial excellence in your application to study at ACM, we want you to know that there are a range of prestigious scholarships available to help reward your hard work.

If you would like to benefit from any of the Scholarships listed here, we encourage you to start their respective applications processes early by following the instructions on the individual Scholarship pages.
