Our Commercial Music programme, based in the laid back and beautiful seaside town of Broadstairs, is designed to inspire creative students wishing to develop their performance and/or sound production skills to a high level. We are academic supporters of BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors) ensuring we keep closely in touch with professionals in this field.


C3U Records

We’ve given the control back to our students!

Although C3U Records has a co-ordinator, it’s the students who run the label.
