We are very disappointed to have to announce that Alchemea College in London has closed. This was one of London’s most prominent venues for Pro Tools courses and the home of our very popular events like the recent Softube Console 1 event.
Our thoughts are with all the team at Alchemea as they come to terms with this. Today Alchemea's website has been updated with the following announcement...
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. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
We understand that despite very hard work by all the team it became no longer economically viable. It is good to see that SSR in London have taken on all existing students and that Alchemea are referring all new students to SSR, who are of course Avid accredited learning partners.
