Your music studies in England

BIMM first opened its doors in 2001, under the name of Brighton Institute of Modern Music. At that time, the school was located in East Sussex, England. In 2014, due to high demand and fast growth, BIMM changed its name in order to reflect the new direction it was taking. Today, it has fIVE campuses: London, Manchester, Dublin, Bristol, and Berlin. This school trains excellent musicians, but also some of the best technicians in the sector. Tuition fees at BIMM are below the national average: only £6300 pounds per year.

Music and more

The school offers various undergraduates and postgraduate programs. Students can specialize in commerce, events, journalism, and engineering. They develop a wide range of skills from creation to production, and from merchandising to critical and analytical thinking. Among its alumni are musicians and engineers who have worked for Björk, The Cure, Lily Allen, Massive Attack, and Mariah Carey.

The school also offers a one-year diploma. This is an ideal option for a gap year or to test whether you want to study music or not.

Student life

BIMM has various campuses in London, Manchester, Dublin, Brighton and Bristol. They all have high-end facilities, and state-of-the-art equipment for producing, editing, and composing music. Most of the campuses have no halls of residence. However, the student support team offers guidance to students so they can find accommodation on location.


Applications and admissions to BIMM are made through UCAS. Study Experience is a specialist in supporting and helping international students through the UCAS application process.

Deadline for applications is usually on January 15th of each year for entry in September.
