Nexus ICA iPad Programme

You get an iPad for Free

Nexus ICA is the first higher education institution in the UK to give an iPad to every undergraduate student. You’ll use it throughout the course – to learn from, take notes on, produce music on, and more. And after the end of your 3-year study, the iPad is yours to keep.

Amazing Masterclasses & Performances

Yes. We host visiting artists and bands in our performance hall (which frequently functions as a venue for some of the world’s most talented musicians), who share masterclasses and performances with us. As a student you’ll enjoy unique benefits and discounts, along with the chance to meet and learn from current industry professionals.

Loads of opportunities to perform

You'll be given tonnes of opportunities to perform, whether in our Christmas in house productions, external performances or as part of our Gospel choir - if you're at home on the stage, Nexus is for you.

Incredible Industry Opportunities

We want to give our students more than technical preparation –industry experience is crucial. We’ll prepare you for the world of music beyond education on our courses. And each year, several students will get the trip-of-a-lifetime to Los Angeles, for the NAMM show (National Association of Music Merchants). They’ll get an inside look at the world of product development, distribution and artist relations, check out the latest gear, hear some mind-blowing performances, and meet musical icons – and, there’ll be time to tour around L.A. too.

A Thriving Community
Community is a big part of what makes us who we are. You’ll get to take part in events that mark our calendar every year, like our Rag Week – every year, the student body comes together and does something wild to raise money for a variety of causes: climbing the three peaks, cycling to Amsterdam, breaking world records, filming a movie in just one week.
