Everything you need to know

1. Applying

You can apply directly to BIMM Berlin by calling our Admissions Team directly on +49 303 11 99 186 to request an assessment or by filling in the ‘Apply Now’ website form. We recommend that you attend one of our Open Days throughout the year so that you’re fully informed about BIMM before you submit your application. Please try not to leave your application to the last minute, as courses do fill up very quickly and we’d hate for you to be disappointed.

UK applicants are also able to apply for BIMM Berlin courses via UCAS, the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service in the UK. When applying for a BIMM Berlin course through UCAS you’ll need to enter our Institution Code – B39, and the Berlin Campus Code – B. If you’re applying via this route you may find our UCAS Application Guide helpful, here you’ll find useful information about completing your application and writing your personal statement.

2. Assessment

Once we’ve received your application, we’ll invite you to attend BIMM for an audition and assessment – this can take place at our Berlin or London campus. If it’s difficult for you to travel to BIMM in person, we’ll arrange for a remote audition/assessment to take place.

All BIMM assessments are free of charge. Upon arrival at BIMM you’ll be greeted individually and have the opportunity to have any questions answered. During your individual assessment we’ll discuss your personal aspirations and the ways in which we can help you to achieve your goals.

After your audition/assessment you’ll be de-briefed by a member of the Admissions Team and this is an opportunity for you to ask any questions regarding the course you’re applying for.
