You’re likely reading this as you’ve heard about Nexus-ICA and you’re wondering if we’d be a good place of study for someone you have in mindWell, if that person is musical and passionate about worship then chances are you’re in the right place!

Whether they are new to higher education and unsure of their current UCAS choices, or unhappy at UNI and looking to switch courses, or even have finished a degree and are wondering what to do next, we believe that one of our courses could be a great fit.

We’re not your standard institution

The vision of Nexus-ICA is to be Europe’s leading Christian Institute for vocational arts and technology education.

Here are just a few ways we believe we differ from mainstream higher education institutions and why we believe we’d be a good environment and place of study for you to recommend.

We are God-Focused

Firstly, you don’t find many HE courses in the UK that offer worship and biblical studies as part of the curriculum whilst preparing students for a wide variety of industry-specific careers. Validated through the University of West London we offer three courses each allowing students to specialise in either Vocals, Guitars, Drums, Bass & Synth, Keys & Piano or Sound & Lighting. These courses are:

Our incredible staff use their wealth of experience to deliver our programmes in a way that facilitate high pass rates of 95%, with 86% leaving with a 2:1 or higher.

Current BA (Hons) Statistics

We look beyond the academic

Secondly, whilst it’s important for our students to succeed academically, we’re not just interested in stats and figures, we care about people. More than that, we’re about investing in our students beyond the academic and along with the support of the wider student community, we believe in bringing about transformational change in our students that prepares them for the next stage of their life.

Our higher than average staff-to-student ratio and ethos towards students allows us to provide the 1-to-1 support needed to take learning beyond the classroom

We buck the lifestyle trend

Thirdly, we offer an alternative to the traditional student-life. Our students form a strong accountable community within a safe environment. Throughout each academic year we come together to work through physical and creative challenges that provide a great sense of achievement both on a personal and community level. It also helps that we provide unprecedented access to practice facilities (without the major booking issues of other institutions), so our students can keep busy pursuing and honing their skills. We can’t, and don’t, set out to shelter our students from the world but that doesn’t mean we have to subscribe to the normal student lifestyles.

We don’t break the bank

Finally, we believe in providing the highest quality and standards in our teaching and facilities and as a smaller institution outside of the mainstream pressures, we are pleased to be able to offer all this at a fraction of the cost being charged elsewhere! Not only does a typical year with us cost thousands less than other degrees (approx £6k, compared to the £9k average) but there aren’t any expensive textbooks to buy as we also provide everything needed to study on the course – including an iPad to keep (for FREE).

We have places for September 2019

Best of all is that we have places still available for this September and our applications process is outside of UCAS. This means applications can be made directly with us up until August, whether any UCAS choices have already been made or not.

So whether you’re a parent trying to find something suitable for your child, a pastor concerned about someone in your care, or just a friend looking out for someone you know – we hope Nexus-ICA can breathe a breath of fresh air into your search for a suitable place for them this September!

We appreciate you might have some questions for us before you are ready to recommend us – so please message or call us and our admissions team will be happy to assist.
