Repaying your loan is as easy as setting up a weekly, fortnightly or monthly direct debit. If you miss a direct debit payment, it is important that you call Study Loans ASAP to avoid any further fees.
If you find yourself in financial hardship, it is important that you call Study Loans immediately. They can try to work with you to reach a payment arrangement that is individual to your needs.
Once you are approved, all funds will be sent directly to Abbey Road Institute Sydney as per your drawdown schedule outlined in your loan agreement. The timing is determined by your progression through the course.
We recommend you first speak to us about re-sitting a unit or deferring your studies. You would still be required to make repayments based on the drawdown/s that you have ‘activated’.
Yes – at any point you can repay part or all of the loan in full. Study Loans has no early repayment fees.
This course taught me how to set up a freelance structure. Knowing things about invoicing and tax and learning how much I should charge. Abbey Road taught me that I have to look after this myself.
Before I was at Abbey Road, it was easy to write a song, and get a singer. But the songwriting process doesn’t work like that. It was important to understand vocal production, writing, and music. It should all happen simultaneously.
Abbey Road really helped me with the foundation of audio. It’s an overwhelming subject at first, but [the course] really breaks it down and really makes it digestible.
The time I spent at Abbey Road Institute helped me transform my skills. I came from a bedroom producer who made music as a hobby to an audio professional.
Abbey Road was the perfect stepping stone into my professional career as an artist and audio engineer.
Studying the past year at Abbey Road has been phenomenal. The teaching staff are top notch and I now have a community of people to draw on who are as obsessed with music as me.
Abbey Road Institute gives students the head-start they need to succeed in today's industry. The facilities at Melbourne are second to none and it’s great to see students grow and be rewarded for their efforts.
