Coleg Llandrillo’s music technology department at the Denbigh campus has been granted a valuable scholarship agreement from the SAE Institute, one of the world’s most highly-regarded creative media institutes.

The partnership agreement will secure two scholarships per year worth £3,000 each for students from Denbigh’s music technology department. SAE only offer a few colleges across the UK a scholarship agreement for potential students.

College staff are delighted that their students will now have access to a range of scholarships at the SAE Institute’s Liverpool campus. Denbigh’s music technology department has been establishing strong links with educators and industry for many years and prides itself in its reputation for “industry-savvy tuition”.

David Ffrancon Williams, curriculum and music technology centre co-ordinator at the Denbigh campus, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for our gifted students. We have been working in partnership with SAE over a period of time to provide this fantastic opportunity for our students.

 “Liverpool is fast becoming a dynamic media centre with a £30 million film studio development underway, and it is the second most used film location after London in the UK.”

The Liverpool campus boasts brand new Mac labs, green screen and industry standard production studios, full of the high specification equipment favoured by professionals. It regularly holds live lounge recording sessions featuring local bands - filmed and recorded by its own students.

One of the world’s leading creative media institutions, SAE builds on a proud tradition of exceptional post-secondary education spanning 54 campuses in 28 countries worldwide, including New York, Los Angeles, Sydney and Amsterdam.
