Coronavirus Advice for Applicants

Updated 26th June 2020

Following the UK Government announcement further lifting restrictions and social distancing measures we will continue to review our plans for delivery in September to ensure all students receive the best possible experience both on and off-campus.

Update for new students intending to take up their place with us in September

While we are all awaiting further clarity around what restrictions may still be in place by the Autumn, we are fully committed to delivering the high quality student experience that BIMM is known for and we are very much looking forward to welcoming our new students into our exciting BIMM community.

Our approach to learning and teaching will be informed by the latest government guidance as we move through the Summer months, however, in anticipation of continued social distancing being in place, we are preparing for the possibility of delivering some of our teaching remotely in Semester 1 up to Christmas to ensure all students are able to engage effectively with their chosen course and experience the highest quality specialist music teaching.

Alongside our long-established programme of new student activities, we are developing an enhanced induction programme which will begin over the Summer months and extend into Semester 1 providing early access to teaching staff, networking opportunities with other students both new and existing, and full access to our exciting schedule of masterclasses and events.

As always, we are here to help answer any questions you have or tell you more about what life at BIMM is like. If you’d like to get in touch with us, please contact our Admissions Team via email [email protected] by phone 0844 2 646 666 or LiveChat on our website www.bimm.ac.uk.
