The best thing about going to JMC was the environment to learn and create in a team. I met so many people that are now invaluable in terms of opportunities and networking. The lecturers are incredible, and have continued to support me since graduating, going above and beyond to make my transition into the 'real world' as smooth as possible.

I discovered and managed the band 5 Seconds of Summer. JMC is where I learned not only how to recognise an artist's potential, but how to take it to the top.
