Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam Response to COVID- 19

AN UPDATE FROM ABBEY ROAD INSTITUTE AMSTERDAM

In March, in light of the developing situation with the coronavirus, we temporarily closed our campus and moved to teach our students online during the lockdown period. As the lockdown has started to open up in The Netherlands, we started to give our students individual access to our teaching spaces and teaching classes at the institute again. This has been carefully planned with a full risk assessment having taken place and our students and staff are following strict social distancing rules.

We are closely following the guidance provided by both the UK government and World Health Organisation to make sure we have the most up to date information and can effectively monitor the situation.

We will be updating our website and social media channels on a regular basis with status updates. Our team are still here, available to speak with you. If you have any questions please drop us an email amsterdam@abbeyroadinstitute.com

We have also included some useful FAQ’s below to offer further guidance if you are applying to study with us at this time.

I WANT TO APPLY FOR THE ADVANCED DIPLOMA IN MUSIC PRODUCTION AND SOUND ENGINEERING. HAS THE APPLICATION PROCESS CHANGED?

We are open and taking applications for our Advanced Diploma in Music Production and Sound Engineering as usual. Our team are here and available to help guide you through the process.
 You can also find guidance on what you need to do to apply on the entry requirements section of the course page. You should gather together all the required documents and submit them, as usual, using our online application portal. We will, however, be changing the interview to an online interview instead of in person at our campus. The interview will still be the same except that we will meet you online rather than in person (through Skype or another online platform). If your application is successful and moves to the next stages we will send you more information about this. If you need any support or guidance for the online interview process please let us know by emailing amsterdam@abbeyroadinstitute.com

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE STUDIO AND TEACHING FACILITIES AT THE CAMPUS. WHEN CAN I COME IN FOR A TOUR?
At the moment our Amsterdam campus is temporarily closed to any visitors. Whilst we cannot offer tours in the next few weeks we are still here and very happy to speak with you about what it’s like to study with us and provide you with lots of useful information on the course, how to apply and future careers. We are giving personal virtual tours with our Staff – email us to book a day and time that suits you via amsterdam@abbeyroadinstitute.com.
 You can also visit the location page of our website so that you can see our teaching spaces, studio, production rooms and get an idea of all of the gear you will have access to as a student. We are looking forward to inviting you to our campus in the future.

CAN I STILL APPLY TO JOIN THE ADVANCED DIPLOMA THIS SEPTEMBER?
We currently have a few places still available for September and are still accepting applications. As we interview on a rolling basis and places are limited we recommend you to apply as soon as you are able to.

By day, you’re soaking in the knowledge of industry experts. By night, you practice what you’ve learnt in a playground of high-end studio equipment. What more could you possibly want?

Janice Wong, Amsterdam Graduate 2017

Abbey Road Institute is not a school, it is a high end production studio with a control room full of learners.

Théo Dorey, Amsterdam Graduate 2016

When you come here, it’s all about being eager to learn, put in the time, and believe in what you do. Hard work pays off.

Emiliano Caballero, Lecturer

“Every day spent here felt like I was better than the day before. It is beautiful to think in colours, mix with flavours and develop a unique way to listen and understand music. Abbey Road is all about perspective and attitude, things which are taught so well between the magical walls of the institute“

Stefan Roscovan, Amsterdam Graduate 2017

From the moment I entered Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam it took me a total of 5 minutes to realise that I came to the right place. It has been one of the best experiences, meeting new friends for life from all over the world. You learn so, so much in just 1 year in an incredible environment, which has to be felt to understand.
