Diploma Courses


We offer a series of highly vocational, real-world Diploma courses at our London, Brighton, Birmingham, Bristol and Manchester colleges, in fields including Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals, Songwriting, Music Production, Music Business, Events, Live Sound and Tour Management.

Not only do these Diplomas provide you with a solid foundation of musical knowledge and technique, but they also teach you all you need to know about the reality of the music industry, while at the same time connecting you directly to it.

BIMM’s unique form of industry networking is all about collaboration. We connect our Diploma students to regular music business experiences, including Masterclasses hosted by internationally renowned guest artists, end-of-term gigs, A&R panels, the annual BIMM album, and participation in our summer festival work experience scheme which sees students of all levels and disciplines set-up, run and perform at these events.

We also have a dedicated career planning and support programme which provides you with ongoing engagement with the industry in the form of work placements, internships, CV advice, job hunting and more.

“Without completing this diploma I would have not found the perfect career route for me and the degree course that would help me achieve this. It was a great introduction into the work I would be dedicating myself to for the next three years.”
