Course summary

Our aim is to provide students with the knowledge and skills appropriate to a range of career outcomes in the creative arts and Christian ministries. The course interweaves biblical teaching and practical training so that all students progress in their musical capabilities and knowledge and understanding of the Bible as well as in their spiritual development. Students are encouraged to develop their individual creative ability and support this with the development of a high level of technical skill and knowledge.The course has been designed to give you a comprehensive educational experience. The course provides an in-depth understanding of both popular music performance and the Biblical concepts of worship. Through expert teaching, you will gain an overview of the Bible and its themes, as well as an exploration into worship and its practical context. Corporate worship sessions, group discussion and practical presentations are used to reflect and review the material, providing you with the opportunity to gain a greater grasp of the concepts being taught. Optional modules are available for those that want to specialise in Church leadership or to prepare for working within the wider area of Christian ministry. We are dedicated to preparing you for a career that lies beyond your studies. You will explore and develop the many career pathways that are available to Nexus ICA graduates, with sessions dedicated to equipping you for success in a broad range of working environments. Visiting lecturers from a variety of fields bring a level of expertise and insight into how your new-found knowledge and skill can translate into a fulfilling and rewarding career. This course is designed specifically for creative artists, music practitioners, teachers, worship leaders and those running commercial or Christian music projects who want to gain a recognised qualification while at the same time fulfilling their creative potential. Students have the choice of specialising in bass, drums, guitar, vocals, piano/keys or live sound. The course encourages artists and technicians to develop realistic and attainable personal development goals, maintaining focus on the individual’s aspirations in addition to developing academic skills in research, analysis, problem solving and critical reflection.We place a high emphasis on providing practical, hands-on contact time for students with our staff. This means that you can receive support and training in a wide range of areas, both on your instrument and in your spiritual understanding. We also consider and work with each student, creating opportunities for further development on an individual basis. Assessments are varied to give each student the opportunity to express themselves in ways appropriate to the course. These include practical assessments, reports and essays, group presentations and research projects. There are many unique experiences for students at Nexus ICA, ranging from getting involved in the putting on of concerts, to participating in world record fundraising events, to working alongside staff in student teams to produce a wide range of work. These activities will train you in how to work as a team, as well as providing opportunities to be challenged alongside your fellow students and staff.Students leaving Nexus ICA will be equipped with many creative and technical skills as well as spiritual and life skills which can be applied in a variety of ways. Many of our students go on to work in the music industry; either performing, recording or developing careers in the commercial and managerial aspects of the industry. We also have many Nexus ICA graduates who go on to work in full-time Christian ministry. This can be as pastors or worship leaders of churches or as employees within wider Christian or
