Academic Excellence

A respected qualification from a prestigious institution

At BIMM, we have already been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for the opportunities that BIMM students are presented in masterclasses, guest lectures, mentoring and careers advice.

This means that whilst studying at BIMM, students will experience a true microcosm of the music industry where expert tutors demonstrate how it fits together and how students can develop their career.

As part of our comprehensive student experience we encourage music business students to manage artists and release records; event management students to put on gigs and become agents; music production students to work with artists; and music journalism students to write their own articles and press releases.
