Is this course accredited?

This course allows you to take advantage of Point Blank's expert instructors, outstanding facilities and practical hands on style of teaching without taking the formal academic route. You will still receive Point Blank Certification on successful completion.

If you wish to gain a qualification you can apply for one of our accredited courses instead e.g. BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering which is quality assured by Middlesex University and for which you receive a Middlesex award on successful completion. It is an ideal progression route to a job in the industry.

Are there entry requirements for this course?

You can take this course without any prior experience. It is creative and practical in nature so academic grades are not required to enrol. Point Blank ensures that students have a sound grasp of all the fundamental skills before moving on to more complex techniques in more advanced modules. 

When should I enrol?

There are four terms per year: January, April, July and September and you can start your course at any of these entry points. However, our courses have limited availability and get booked well in advance, so we recommend enrolling as soon as you are ready to secure your place to avoid disappointment. 

Do you offer instalment plans?

What is my timetable?

Degree and Diploma students take up to four modules concurrently.  Each module requires your attendance at one daytime class. Please note your classes will be scheduled before the start of each term.

The studio facilities are open to you 7 days a week gaining you valuable studio time and reinforcing the skills learned in class. Students can also book regular 1-2-1 sessions with our instructors outside of class time. Tier 4 students will be monitored to ensure they fulfil the statutory requirements of their visas.
