At BIMM, we’re always keen to know what our graduates have been up to since leaving us – not only because we like to celebrate their success, but we also want to make sure we’re fulfilling our promise of connecting them to a life in music. So, we surveyed them to ask details of their employment status and feelings towards BIMM. And without further ado: here’s the feedback from our ‘Class of 2015’.
Well… it’s fantastic news to know that our vocational approach is working, because 77% of BIMM graduates are already employed only six months after graduating! This statistic puts us ahead of other UK universities and colleges, where this figure comes in at 71%*.
It shows that an education with BIMM really does equal employability, connecting you directly to both the music industry and the workforce – and of those 77% already employed, 70% are working directly in the music business in roles such as musician, songwriter, composer, music rep, and music teacher, and in areas including live music, music production and more.
We found that 70% of BIMM alumni are employed in jobs specifically looking to recruit graduates, proving that BIMM courses are both academic and practical.
We also found that BIMM’s industry connectivity was both proven and highly valued, with 83% of graduates stating that they engaged with the music industry while they were a student at BIMM.
So… what do all these statistics tell you? In a nutshell, it’s that connectivity really is the key to a successful career in the music industry. And if you’re after that, then there’s no better place to study than BIMM.
