Full Fee Funding Now Available For Higher Education Students

Point Blank Music School is committed to delivering the very best music education available whilst ensuring value for money for students. We provide a world-class experience and believe that the only barrier to success should be the limit of an individuals own ambition, talent and imagination - regardless of background, everyone has the right to a great education.

We are pleased to confirm that our recent application to change category with the Office for Students was successful and from now on, all eligible Higher Education students can apply to have their full course fees covered by a student loan. Until now, the maximum loan available left students needing to pay "top-up" fees which prevented some people from joining our courses and reaching their full potential – this is no longer the case.

We hope that this change in status will help us break down barriers in music education and reach those talented individuals who otherwise may not have entered Higher Education or had the opportunity to study and grow with Point Blank.

You can apply directly by registering and completing our HE application form. Alternatively, you can apply via UCAS

In line with the sector, our fees will be changing in 2021. You can find full details of our fees for September 2020 and January 2021 onwards below.
