Your music studies in England, Germany or Ireland
At BIMM you will be part of a creative community that gives you the best opportunity to get the most out of your talent and work in one of the world’s biggest and most celebrated industries.
Location is vital to breaking into the music industry!
BIMM has eight colleges where music matters most – London, Berlin, Hamburg, Brighton, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham and Dublin.
As seven of our eight campuses offer the same degree courses, students can choose, if they wish, to have a two-city experience in the UK and Germany. (If a student chooses to study a one year diploma first, they can progress onto a degree course at a campus of their choice).
From our latest survey of our students, 83% are working in the music and creative industries six months after graduation.
BIMM Graduates include: James Bay, George Ezra (BRIT Award Winners), The Kooks, Ella Mai (Grammy and Billboard Music Awards winner), Luisa-Christie Walton-Stoev (Influencer Marketing Lead at Atlantic Records UK), Natasha Bent (Paradigm Talent Agency and Agent of the Year Winner 2018)
Due to our global reputation, (over 1,500 overseas students from across the world), we also attract artists from the top bands to lead Masterclasses (Jonas Blue, Stormzy, Mabel, Zane Lowe and many, many more). There are usually around four Masterclasses per week as well as many other student events including music industry sessions and live gigs in the city of each campus.
Expert Lecturers The music industry is continually evolving, shaping and reflecting our society in all its wonderful diversity. To keep our teaching relevant, we only employ world-class lecturers who are currently working in the industry. Our lecturers live and breathe the world of music.
