1 year ago
LMA – the media, music and performing arts institution co-owned by Robbie Williams – has joined the Galileo Global Education Network, paving the way for students to undergo their training at an international level.
With 55 schools, colleges and universities based across 15 countries, Galileo is Europe’s largest higher education provider, enabling students to access facilities in partnered institutions, as well as giving education providers the opportunity to expand their reach and accelerate growth.
As part of the network, LMA students will have the chance to study abroad for a year and become integrated with other institutions’ learning programmes, becoming part of Galileo’s 170,000-strong cohort across the world.
Based across two campuses – Metquarter Liverpool and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London – LMA offers undergraduate courses in Acting, Digital Film & TV Production, Digital Games Art, Music Performance & Industry, Dance and Musical Theatre.
Global superstar Robbie Williams, who joined the board of directors in 2019, has welcomed the move to join the network and believes it will provide the perfect springboard to develop students’ talents even further.
He said: “LMAstudents are the ultimate creators – our goal at LMA is give them the tools to help shape the creative world we live in.”
Listed within Galileo’s roster are international centres such as drama school Cours Florent, Paris; Macromedia University, Germany; Noroff School of Technology and Digital Media, Norway; and renowned fashion design school Istituto Marangoni, located across Milan, London, Paris and Dubai.
Bruno Mourgue d’Algue, CEO Northern Europe at Galileo Global Education, said: “Galileo is delighted to be working with the LMA team
“We will provide investment and support to accelerate the development of LMA’s portfolio of courses, on-campus, internationally and online.”
Now, LMA is looking forward to developing its relationship with Galileo, working alongside partnered institutions and continuing to grow its offering.
Richard Wallace, CEO and co-founder of LMA, said: “Joining the Galileo family has been a goal of ours for some time as it gives us the chance to offer students yet another opportunity to widen their experience with us and develop their skills in new, innovative ways.
“We want our students to leave us feeling more than ready to explore their chosen career path and becoming part of Galileo will provide them – and LMA as a whole – with enormous opportunities to connect with a global educational network, creating life-changing experiences.
“We’re incredibly excited to be enrolled onto Galileo’s prestigious network and cannot wait to move forward with our partnership.”
