Platform One continues to go from strength to strength. Despite such a challenging year, the College’s higher education students have excelled, with the best results ever achieved.
Platform One has been working in partnership with the University of Chichester since 2012, delivering the only full-time undergraduate programme to ever run on the Isle of Wight. Written by Platform One, the BA (Hons) Commercial Music degree offers a diverse range of subjects that interface directly with the modern music industry.
This year, six students received a First Class Honours degree at the University of Chichester graduation ceremony (that took place on the 18 August). Twelve students gained a Class Two/Division One (2:1) result. These are the best results ever achieved since the programme launched in 2012.
