Life After BIMM

From the campus to the world stage

Where next? It’s a natural question for anyone considering a course at BIMM, and as you’ll see from our alumni success stories, the future is so bright you’ll need shades (preferably Aviators). A BIMM degree isn’t about giving you a scroll and a handshake. We’ll actively get you primed for your chosen branch of the music business, ensuring you leave with the skills that make you an attractive prospect for employers, and a contacts book bulging with insiders ready to grease the wheels.

We’re proud of the fact that 86% of BIMM alumni are in employment six months after graduating – and that 83% of those are working within the international music and creative industries. But behind those impressive statistics, you’ll find a thousand personal stories of music lovers who turned their daydreams into a career, whether that means working as a pro songwriter, session player, producer, events manager, music journalist or global superstar (we’ve taught a few of those at BIMM, too).

Check out the alumni gallery below, get inspired – and get enrolled.
