In 2017, Music and Songwriting Students had the get the opportunity to travel to London on an all-expenses paid, once in a lifetime music exchange hosted by Nando's.

As the only institute in Australia to be invited, JMC students were given the opportunity to go to London’s Roundhouse to collaborate with students from England and South Africa, working with other musicians and professionals to write, record and perform original work. We look forward to the invitation again in 2018.

Student Emanuel Yoong Zhuang described how “The process of co-writing with musicians from South Africa and London was interesting to learn how music is being expressed from a different perspective in terms of cultures and background influences. I am overwhelmed with Hip Hop culture in London and this was my first time writing rap lyrics for a song. The network, knowledge and experience I gained from this trip allows me to have ability to produce any songs and reach out to a global network of international audiences.”
