It's been good but it could have been better if we where able to go on campus. But they have been trying to provide is with the help we need through one to one's and extra classes. It's not been great but it's been good year
They make sure you are thinking of your career from year one a provide professionals to give us masterclasses on methods.
We have a mixture of webinars and one to one tutorials so that we can have out time with the tutor to help us understand what's we need done.
We can hire equipment to use at home. And we can hire spaces for a small amount of people in the BIMM buildings.
They are always available by email.
The teachers have done everything they can to support us through this difficult year however because of lack of support from the government for students, it has been difficult to deal with and to get the best standard of education that we’re paying for.
It was not the same after the pandemic and the online lessons made it difficult to get work done. Assignments were not explained properly and overall I believe I deserve my money back.
It’s been brilliant really. Marked down because of Covid-19 and online lessons arent the best but I understand that everyone is working hard to the best of their abilities
No faults. The uni is brilliant in this sense
There’s not as much support since going online and I feel some lecturers have taken too long to adapt to online learning/ don’t use the lesson time effectively. The breakout rooms are not effective
Can’t complain. It’s a music school and all needed facilities are available.
Brilliant when places are open, lockdown doesn’t help this fact though. Right in the city centre so near everything.
Council king is readily available and tutorials are always an option. At the start of first year everybody got a 1 on 1 with their student support officer. Only downside is I think if a student hasn’t been in for a while (absent) student support should reach out and try to book and appointment to find out what’s going on.
Teachers have been pretty fair and helpful but it’s still beginning stages so I can’t judge yet but I’ve got a lot of support here and there from numerous of teachers which I’m grateful for.
Teachers make it really interesting the way they teach but needs to be more practical work going on
I left BIMM after my first year as it was not for me and I could not see how it could open more doors than I could on my own. It is definitely more for people who like less of a hands-on experience and of course good for people who are straight out of college and haven't had prior work experience.
I left so didn't have a chance to really experience this
I liked the variety of the modules but having a different tutor for so many different modules got a bit confusing as some of the content overlapped.
The facilities are heavily focused on the performance courses. There are a few areas in the different campuses where you can sit and study but not really a main study area with books such as a library.
BIMM doesn't have it's own accommodation but it's pretty easy to get this sorted yourself via student forums
Pretty good all round, but you have to actively ask if you want feedback
I have a good degree with which I can move on and do a masters. I'm disappointed about the metal side of the uni because I am a metal fan. They lost some key tutors I think for the metal module but even so they could have started teaching metal techniques much earlier on.
If you are proactive you can book 1:1 or 1:2 careers advice. You do a professional development module in 3rd year which gives professional tools and helps you devise a plan for after you leave. Maybe they could think about introducing placement opportunities or second instrument studies.
I like the way ended up being quite good at critical thinking. There is a lot of cohesion between modules. The metal module wasn't taught properly. The techniques for double bass drumming and extreme metal vocals need to be taught much earlier on like they do for jazz. If jazz is your favourite genre this is great, although then you may try a conservatoire. 4 stars if you don't like metal, otherwise 2 stars if you do.
Quite good but not enough rehearsal space. They have Mac Suites. Particularly problematic for band rehearsals or drummers. They probably need more songwriting/production rooms too. I don't know how this compares to other universities however.
Fulham has lots of food places and bars. Probably quite fun if you like that kind of thing. Mostly they are expensive but there is a Wetherspoon pub. Renting is expensive in London.
Academically its great in terms of detailed feedback, tuition and development of critical thinking skills. Except for the metal module which is why I can only give 2 stars. Personal - I think this is defensive and more about safeguarding the university legally than really helping diverse groups. One or two of the tutors were not on board with the diversity and really let the side down.
So far I have been very satisfied with my experience at university. Fun and engaging, as well as teaching me alot of skills. Tutors are friendly, knowledgeable and keen to help. The opportunities granted are plenty.
There is often careers days and extra curricular help offered.
I like how the tutors are very friendly and engaging. An aspect of the courses I find frustrating is they teach you alot of information in one lesson and then move on to something else so it is sometimes difficult to practice and maintain all of what we have been taught.
Plenty of facilities to a good standard. No need for complaint. Would ideally like more practice spaces within the university.
Yes it is in a fine location next to many venues and housing areas. Also very close to means of public transport
I have found that support around BIMM is outstanding. Tutors are always keen and happy to help. I have never had issues with feedback or response from staff. The wider support (e.g. student support, careers etc) is excellent with someone always reaching out to help. There is also often specialised support opportunities for various communities and people of need
Very fun really enjoyed myself. Feel more inspired for the future. Made some friends for life already and love the atmosphere of university. Have been able to work along side it and get all my assignments in in time
It really helps
I like the small classes
very good, i’m happy about the realistic aspect and how they’re honest about what we need to do to survive in the industry. there’s good mixers, masterclasses, tutorials and overall classes
they mail us about paid and unpaid internships in the music industry all the time and it’s easy to stay up to date on the internships happening near us
most: it’s taught in a way that is practical and easy to understand and useful for the life we plan on living least: none
it’s up to date and very functional
it’s in centrum, down an alley, it looks kinda sketchy but it’s really not
very good tutorial system and student services are easy to contact
