Alchemea College closes after 23 years

London audio college Alchemea has announced it has ceased trading with immediate effect.

Located on Windsor Street in Islington, Alchemea has been providing Music Production, Sound Engineering and Game Audio courses to students from all over the world since 1992.

The London branch of Manchester-based SSR (School of Sound Recording) has offered an opportunity for Alchemea students to continue their education there, as well as those who have put down deposits for a course with the college in the future.

Alchemea has placed a statement on its website, which reads:

"It is with great sadness that we have to make the announcement that Alchemea College is to cease trading with immediate effect. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience or anxiety this will undoubtedly cause our students, alumni and anyone else that has dealt with us over the years. Many of you will be aware of SSR, a college similar to Alchemea in many respects. SSR have very kindly agreed to place all current Alchemea students on their courses without cost to us or our students. Anyone who has paid a deposit on one of our future courses will have the option to transfer their studies over to a comparable SSR. We are proud to recommend SSR as an excellent alternative route for anyone wishing to commence or continue studies with us. We would like to thank everyone who studied with us and supported us over the years, it’s been a great journey and we couldn’t have got this far without you."
