Fantastic news for current students and future applicants to BIMM. The institute has successfully registered with the Office for Students (OfS) – the new regulator for all FE and HE providers in the UK. This positive step forward means eligible students are now able to benefit from full tuition fee coverage from the Student Loans Company (SLC).
Previously, as with all private education providers, the SLC’s tuition fee loans for UK and EU BIMM students were capped at £6,165. This meant a portion of the total tuition fee (£7,650) had to be supplied privately each year. Now, thanks to our successful registration with the OfS, the SLC will cover the full cost of these fees, removing this extra expenditure for applicants and/or their families. The change comes with immediate effect and applies to all eligible UK and EU applicants.
In light of this great news, BIMM’s tuition fees remain unchanged. On average, our tuition fee costs are £1,600 less than many UK universities and colleges, making BIMM one of the most affordable higher education providers in its field.
As it has always been, BIMM’s main goal continues to be delivering affordable, industry-focused music performance, production and business courses at a price that’s substantially less than the traditional university sector.
Added proof of BIMM’s incredible value for money can be found within a host of added extra-curricular classes, activities and student enrichment programs, which are free of charge and available to students across our colleges. These include:
- BIMM Extra
- Careers Hub
- Student mentoring scheme
- Commercial performance program
- Music industry work experience
- One-to-one tutorials (any discipline)
- Mental health seminars
- Networking events
- Regular in-house and student-led live music events
