Student experience

Not only do we open the doors to the music industry, but we also offer a friendly and welcoming place for you to discover who you really are.

Life at BIMM is about becoming part of something bigger than just your own personal journey. The friends you make at BIMM will last you a lifetime, and the connections you make will jump-start your future career. The BIMM community is somewhere you can find out who you really are, unleash your creative talents, and carve out your place in the world.

We believe there is more to education than just lectures and assignments. That’s why we constantly bridge the gap between learning and experiencing. This is a place that offers so many opportunities, and everything is here for the taking.

You can enrich your passion with our range of masterclasses, one-to-one tutorials, optional modules and extracurricular activities. Join one of our student association clubs or broaden your experience with our festival work experience programme.

If you ever need a hand with anything (whether it’s taking care of your well-being, housing advice, learning support or just adjusting to life away from home), our Student Support team is always on hand to give you the advice and guidance you need.

"I truly feel like I am part of a supportive and loving community. I think the overall experience is so reliant on what you are willing to put in; if you work hard and support your peers, you will see results and opportunities will naturally present themselves. Most people here are so lovely – just be yourself, be kind and you will easily find your people!"
Sally Von Hofsten, Vocals

Student enrichment

Our extracurricular activities complement your main studies, provide you with new skills and help you become who you were always meant to be.

Enrich Your Passion

Student wellbeing

We understand that sometimes you might want a helping hand. That’s why our friendly and fantastic support network is here should you ever need it.

Lean on Us

Student Association

Not all of our activities link to your course. That’s because we understand how beneficial it is to have experiences outside of the curriculum. They can help your well-being and growth as a person.

With our Student Association, you’ll find student-led activities that provide a fantastic way for you to meet new and motivating people, gain valuable life skills and build your own BIMM experience.

"The true gift BIMM has offered me is the people I’ve met; incredibly talented friends (including both lecturers and students) who inspired the musician inside me and spurred me to be better every day."
Linus De Ferrari

Music Made Us

Our #MusicMadeUs campaign explores, discusses and celebrates what music means to people, how it’s impacted our world – and how it’s made us who we are today.
