NEW FOR 2017

We’re thrilled to announce that BIMM is expanding again and opening its 7th college in Birmingham!

In October 2017 a brand new, state-of-the-art college will open in Digbeth – the creative hub of the Midlands.

It made total sense for BIMM to have a college in this vibrant city, which has a history of such a diverse range of music, including Duran Duran, The Streets, Black Sabbath, UB40, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, ELO, Steel Pulse, Joan Armatrading, Spencer Davis Group…

BIMM will be investing £4M in the new Birmingham college and will employ 50+ local music professionals. As with all our other colleges, BIMM Birmingham looks forward to welcoming hundreds of talented students who will be guided and inspired by our highly respected industry professionals with years of experience in the music business.

BIMM Birmingham will offer courses in Professional Musicianship – Guitar, Bass, Drums, Vocals and Songwriting, as well as Music Production and Music Business. All of these will be BA Honours Degree Courses and validated by the University of Sussex, who are in the top 1% of global universities and ranked in the top 20 of UK universities.

Dara Kilkenny – Executive Principal for BIMM Manchester and Dublin – will take on the same role for Birmingham:

“Having been with BIMM since 2010, it’s been my privilege to have helped many creative individuals embark on their careers.Numerous times I’ve thought how lucky I am to have earned a living doing something that I Iove. I hope this will be the case for every BIMM Birmingham graduate, because if it’s a creative, successful and sustainable career in the music industry you’re after, there really is no better place to be!”

Like the other campuses, students will be immersed in the music industry, taught by current music professionals who will bring real, current experience directly into the classroom along with an impressive list of Masterclass guests.

BIMM Birmingham will be open for applications via UCAS.

Look out for details of an Information Day. To be announced soon.
