Academy Class offers students different route amid plans to increase university tuition fees

It’s been said that education is the most powerful weapon. But that weapon may be to about to become more expensive thanks to further increases in tuition fees for university students. Last week, universities in England announced plans to increase university tuition fees to over £9,000 per annum for the first time in history. And according to the government, it will support these increases if universities can show they have high quality teaching.

Tuition fees for the 2017/18 academic year was listed on Durham, Kent and Royal Holloway websites as £9,250 last week. But MPs will vote in the autumn on whether it will allow this increase in tuition fees. A bone of contention for many, Academy Class, Britain’s top media training provider, is highlighting the other options open to those looking to get valuable qualifications. Offering a range of courses, they are further cementing their position as leaders in their field by offering an Access All Areas (AAA) pass for all of their courses.

Mark Young, Director of Academy Class said, “Academy Class was developed to help people realise their potential and give them the skill set and competitive edge to help them get into the technology industry. With tuition fee hikes pricing many people out, we want to make it accessible and affordable for people from all walks of life to learn new skills in order to progress and do something they are really passionate about.”

The media industry is worth billions worldwide. And according to figures released earlier this year by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, the creative industries – which include British films and video games – are helping to push the UK economy forward thanks to being worth almost £10m per hour to the British economy.

The AAA pass provides individuals with unlimited training at Academy Class’ training centres located in London, Manchester and Glasgow for one year. Each class is specially designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to develop in animation, video, print and web design. Providing certifications with Adobe, Autodesk and Apple, the courses are the perfect addition to those already working in the sector and looking to give themselves to competitive edge, or those wanting to make their mark and get into the creative industries from the ground up.

Priced at £5997 +VAT, the package provides exceptional value for money. And those taking up the class can choose to pay over 12, 24 or 36 months.
