Why Point Blank? Seven Good Reasons

Point Blank London Open Full social distancing & safety guidelines in place

Step Inside The Music Industry Open Days and Sample Masterclasses

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

Funding advice for EU applicants from 2021 onwards can be found here.

Software & Hardware Requirements

We supply all the software and equipment you need for your class and for practice time on campus at our studios. You have access to our facilities 7 days a week during term time for the length of your course (excluding scheduled breaks). Outside of class and coming into the studios, we highly recommend you have your own equipment at home to enable you to work on your assignments and study independently, and this will come at an additional cost to the course fees. 

Below is a list of equipment and software we advise for your home set up depending on the programme you choose to study. If you plan to attend all your classes remotely (as we offer blended learning) and do not intend to come to campus to study and use the facilities, then it is essential to have this equipment at home. You can receive exclusive discounts on the products below and more, check out this page for more information.
