Introducing our 2020 courses

Our 2020 courses have been developed with the music industry, for the music industry so that you’ll have the best opportunities to build a fulfilling career in an area you’re passionate about.

We’ve introduced a range of exciting new courses with elements never seen at BIMM Institute before. It’s all part of our commitment to continually re-evaluate and reassess what we offer so you can have the most relevant and up-to-date music education possible.

It’s so great that BIMM are embracing changes and developments in the industry and actively getting advice and suggestions from those that work on the front line. The newly-developed courses look like they’re going to be pretty amazing!Luisa-Christie Walton-Stoev – Lead Social Influencer, Atlantic Records

Developed with the music industry, for the music industry

We’ve worked closer than ever with the industry to find out what they need from the next generation of music professionals. And it’s clear that being multi-skilled is what’s required to succeed today. So, we have refreshed our new undergraduate courses with this in mind.

The new undergraduate courses – BA (Hons) at our BIMM Institutes in Berlin and Hamburg include:


Introducing New Optional Modules

If you chose to study at BIMM Institute, you’ll have the chance to learn multiple skills along the way via a range of brand new optional modules.

This is because we understand that everyone is different, with their own dreams, aspirations, passions and career goals. So, if you are studying Drums, but also have an entrepreneurial spirit, you can study a selection of Music Business modules and expand your knowledge and skills in different areas. Alternatively, if you are a Music Producer who wants to enhance your songwriting capabilities, we have modules to help you achieve that.

As operators of venues where so much live “entertainment” becomes tangible, it is both an honour and a duty for us at the same time to introduce young, interested students of BIMM Berlin to our work processes. I am pleased that there are now courses of study that did not exist at all during my own student days and that professional entry requirements to the music/event industry have finally been established.Sybil Franke, Managing Director, Velomax Berlin Hallenbetriebs GmbH c/o Max-Schmeling-Halle

New Courses – Validated By BIMM Institute

On 14th March 2019, BIMM Institute was granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers in the UK by an Order from the Privy Council after demonstrating that it meets the criteria to become a ‘recognised body’ for awarding degrees in the UK and Germany.

As such, BIMM Institute has overall responsibility for the academic standards and the quality of the qualifications we offer – and we are now able to award four of our own Bachelor degrees. This means you’ll graduate with a degree from Europe’s most prestigious and connected music institute.

For the validation of all Performance courses and Songwriting degrees in Germany, we will continue our successful academic partnership with the internationally renowned University of Sussex.

“I just wish something like this had been around when i was a teenager desperately trying to think of a way into the music industry.Julie Weir – Label Head, Sony Music

We are incredibly proud of the developments we have made to our courses this year. These changes will help us to deliver against our primary goal: to support you in finding fulfilling employment within the music industry.
