  • Currently studying here as a junior on the Saturday programme, and especially as this is the busiest day of the week, the logistics are extremely impressive. All facilities are clean and new, making this University a popular attraction, both for undergraduates, post graduates, and members of the public visiting to see concerts. Lessons here are top quality and I have learned much this year! Concert halls are advanced and comfortable. Highly recommend the reasonably priced cafe that impresses all that come. Would highly recommend!
  • Learnt a lot there, great place for tuition and band practise.
