Our Advanced Diploma is not eligible for NL undergraduate student loans.  Lots of our students choose to spread the cost of the course during their time with us, to help with financing their studies.  If you’d like to chat with us about the payment plan and making this work for you please get in touch.

Abbey Road Institute Amsterdam is an approved short vocational education provider in the Netherlands, registered under the name ARI Education NL B.V. Students following the programme are able to get back up to 52% of the tuition fee via a tax deduction. Therefore the actual costs of the course can be significantly less, depending on the tax bracket you are in. Be aware that the actual refund depends on the income earned in the same year. No income in the year of study? It is possible to carry forward the deduction to the first year with income.

The above does not apply to people receiving any governmental benefits, or those who are not yet employed.

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.
