The deadline for on-time UCAS applications for degree-level courses starting in 2019/20 has now passed, but don’t worry if you missed it. It’s still possible to submit an application to study here at BIMM.
Whatever your reason for not getting your UCAS application submitted on time, don’t panic. Your dream of kickstarting a life in music is far from over!
Our admissions team is currently working hard behind the scenes to process applications submitted before the UCAS deadline. Once these have been successfully taken care of, the team will continue to process late applicants.
Once you’ve been contacted about your successful application, our admissions process remains relatively unchanged. Please bear in mind, the later your application is submitted, the later it will be processed. So, don’t delay!
If you have yet to start your UCAS application, we’ve put together some handy guides to help you. Read BIMM’s UCAS Application Guides here.
After your application has been received, our admissions team will be in touch to arrange the next step – your assessment with us.
What to expect from your assessment.
If you’ve applied for a performance-based course such as Songwriting, Drums, Vocals, Bass or Guitar, you will still be required to visit your closest BIMM campus (or whichever one you’re looking to study at) for an assessment. Further advice on performance assessments be found here. If circumstances prevent you from being able to attend an assessment in person, you’ll be asked to submit a pre-recorded video of your song performances and technical demonstrations on your chosen instrument.
If you’re looking to study Music Production at BIMM, you will be required to submit in advance some examples of music which you have produced/mixed. These can be bounced tracks of your own original compositions, cover versions or even tracks you have produced for coursework in previous music production studies.
If you have applied to study a non-performance course with us, such as Music Business, Music Journalism or Event Management, then the application process is fairly similar; minus the performance element. You will be required to discuss your chosen subject in detail, explaining why you feel you’re a good candidate for the course and what sorts of career objectives you’re looking to achieve during and after your course.
Please remember, our admissions team are on hand to answer any questions you might have about submitting your application, so please don’t hesitate to contact them should you have any questions, wish to arrange an assessment or book to attend an Open Day.
