BIMM is dedicated to supporting and offering opportunities to talented and passionate aspiring musicians to develop their skills, talents and self confidence.

Every academic year, we’re able to offer a limited number of bursaries to talented and dedicated applicants and students who are in financial hardship. Over the last year, we’re proud to have offered the equivalent of over €280,000 in scholarships and bursaries to students across our colleges in need of financial help, allowing them to make the most of their talents.
