All killer. No filler. BIMM’s Events and Live Sound Diploma is structured to help you develop into an industry professional. Every step of the way, you’ll be guided by our expert tutors – all current and respected figures with years of expertise to pass on. But that doesn’t mean you can’t go off the map, with a varied curriculum designed to prep your skill-set for employment, or indeed for study at a much higher level.

For upcoming events professionals making their first moves, nothing beats hands-on experience in the field. At BIMM, you’ll learn your craft at the sharp end. Learn how to run your own projects, collaborate with your peers and form long-lasting industry relationships. Harness our cutting-edge facilities as you sharpen your event management and live sound chops.

Our courses are both academic and rooted in the real world, providing the perfect balance between practical and technical skills, theory and analysis. Beyond the nuts-and-bolts of the business, you’ll be exploring and developing potential career pathways through research and experience, while learning the vital industry skills that employers will look for.

You’ll want to plug into one-of-a-kind networking opportunities and collaborate with like-minded movers and shakers during your time on the course. And that couldn’t be easier, with opportunities to hook up fast with fellow BIMM students, bands, songwriters, event managers and fellow promoters.

One size doesn’t fit all – so BIMM’s Events & Sound Production Diploma puts you in control, with specifically tailored course content to help you hit your own personal targets. Dive into your core studies, but don’t forget to max out your skill-set with all the extra opportunities for real world experience, such as getting involved with our end of term gigs with full sound systems at professional level venues.

Masterclasses

Only BIMM has the pulling power to bring in the heavyweights at the top of their profession. But you’ll get just as much value from the masterclasses hosted by up-and-comers, who were stood in your shoes just a few years before and are perfectly placed to pass on up-to-the-minute advice on climbing those first rungs of the ladder. So watch and learn. There’s no better way to build your understanding of what it truly takes to become a top-flight events manager.
