Educator of rising stars, ACM, sees increase in numbers despite sector fall declared by UCAS

The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) has been building life long sustainable careers in the music industry since 1997. With its unique brand of education supported by state of the art facilities and world class tutors, ACM is proud to have been steadily growing its student base over the last year. With its biggest Campus in Guildford, ACM opened its London campus in 2016 and its Birmingham campus is set to welcome its first cohort of students this September.  

University admissions service, UCAS, has released information that those applying for university in the UK has fallen by 4% year on year, with EU nationals planning to study in the UK falling by 5%. Despite this sector-wide fall, ACM is pleased to announce that its own numbers are in fact rising, evidencing the compelling nature of its tripartite commitment to the academic, personal and professional development of its students.

Kainne Clements acquired both ACM and Europe’s largest recording facility, Metropolis Studios in 2013. In his 4 year tenure as Executive Chairman, he has worked to closely align the the real world business of Metropolis to the education provided at ACM. Initiatives like this help ACM to bridge the gap between the needs of the music industry and what education has traditionally provided.

Director of ACM Oliver Sussat said "We are incredibly pleased to see our numbers increase at a point where the sector is actually in decline. We are so proud of our world class tutors, state of the art facilities, unique Industry Link department and all of the staff that put their heart and soul into delivering our unparalleled student experience. We're looking for people with passion, potential, character and commitment for and to a career in the music industry, so if that sounds like you, we'd like to hear from you."
