The brand new Global Academy is the brainchild of Global, the media and entertainment business. They're the driving force, giving students unprecedented access to unique industry experiences, facilities and expertise. It’ll be more than just the technical stuff on offer though. All Global Academy students will get to know people who already work in the industry and will also work on real life projects in a very hands-on style in order to obtain the most well-rounded media education experience out there.
Home to some of the UK's best-loved radio stations such as Heart, Capital and Classic FM, to name a few, Global keep 24 million listeners tuned in and entertained each week. They also manage some of the best musical talent around, publish some of the biggest tracks in the charts, and run two of the freshest music TV channels there are. Global are based at 30 Leicester Square, London, WC2H 7LA.
But Global can’t do it all by itself. So there's a University sponsor. The University of Arts, London, [UAL] is Europe’s biggest arts university and now they’re working right alongside the Global Academy team to deliver an amazing educational experience that will set students up for long-term success in the creative industries.
Everyone from successful pop stars to famed actors, fashion industry icons to media leaders have studied with UAL. And now we’re able to draw on their world-class expertise to help us deliver the learning experience students will need if they’re to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding it takes to make it, big time.
