Following a Flexible Study plan at Abbey Road Institute gives you the flexibility to combine work and study. You’ll see the immediate impact of the course, being able to apply the practical, theoretical and creative learning you’ll undertake with us directly back into your own production works outside of class. Throughout this time you’ll be supported and inspired by the Abbey Road Institute team.
By taking up a Flexible Study plan you benefit from an extended period of study time by which you can access our world class studios in Melbourne, have longer exposure to our industry leading lecturers, have access to your own workstation and recording facilities when you want, for whatever project you want.
Flexible Study allows you to choose either 2 or 3 modules of study per trimester. This allows you to attend class on say Tuesday and Thursday whilst also fulfilling your other work and life commitments on the remaining days each week*. Individual study plans can be tailored to meet your needs by consulting with our Academic Coordinator and study plans can be varied trimester to trimester.
* Course Progression Rules apply – you must complete all prescribed modules in Trimester 1 before progressing to Trimester 2, and all Trimester 2 modules before progressing to Trimester 3.
Upon graduating this course you will be musically and technologically proficient and able to operate professionally in a diversity of audio production roles and environments. Our course content is delivered in a unique, practical learning environment where you will complete hands-on activities under direct supervision of our industry professional staff.
As a student, you will have access to highly specialised workstations before, during and after class. Supervisors are available on site to provide learning support outside of classroom hours.

It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to the Abbey Road studios for classes is pretty amazing, there aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!
Come with an open mind and a voracious appetite to soak up the magic! Be prepared to work hard - you’ll get out what you put in.

On the first day of the course it was clear that I had found my tribe; we’re like a family, and it’s uncanny how everyone gets on creatively.
