Exclusive Features at Point Blank Online

This page is designed to explain to Point Blank Online Students what kind of services they can expect during their time studying online with us. You will see that our student experience is unrivalled which is why we scored 86% and 84% for overall satisfaction in the NSS (National Student Survey) in the last two years.

Masterclasses

WEEKLY INTERACTIVE LECTURES

Taking place every week at a time voted most convenient by you and your classmates, an expert lecturer will guide you through the week's content, explaining exercises, assignments, syllabus topics and areas for discussion. Delivered from our London and LA schools, these two hour masterclasses enable you to understand the week's curriculum and to fully interact with your lecturer and classmates.

1-2-1 Live Tutorials

PERSONAL TUITION TIME

This is your chance to have the undivided attention of your lecturer and can be used to clarify elements of the course such as your assignment tasks and to get advice on your work and studies from an expert.  We recommend booking one of these sessions every two weeks. This is a great way to maximise your relationship with your lecturer and the course in general. You can also book additional 1-2-1s with our range of specialist online instructors.

STUDIO LAB TIME

STUDIO SUPPORT AVAILABLE REMOTELY

We know that students on campus at Point Blank enjoy studio/private practice time supported by our Studio Assistants and the the same service is available to our online diploma and HE students via Studio Lab Time. Get support on all elements of production including: 

  • Setting up gear/DAW 
  • DAW/Software usage

Point Blank Recordings

IN HOUSE RECORD LABEL

A&R'd by Kwame Kwaten, (Ferocious Talent CEO / Co-Director Cre8ing Vision & Ultimate Seminar / Brit Awards Trustee / Mobo Awards Trustee and successful Record Producer and artist manager), PB Students benefit from 1-2-1 mentoring/A&R sessions with Kwame to help develop their music and create avenues into production, remix, artist and writing work.
