MA Popular Music Practice

University rating (3)

the student support is probably the best aspect of my university. However, the worst is probably the lack of recording/DJing spaces and student societies

Songwriting & Music Business BA (Hons)

University rating (1)

Some lecturers are nice even though they have a huge lack of actual musical knowledge, they are more like people that was in a successful band or production at some point, but not skills to teach or whatsoever, they were just lucky, makes no sense, anyone would much rather have someone with techniques and useful knowledge … most things they focus on are ‘how to be successful on Instagram’ and other social media platforms…. This is time wasting, this platforms might not even exist in the future, and also that is why internet is full of talentless successful figures. So, if you want to just be trendy and use auto-tune in weak/trash/pop three chord productions, BIMM is your place, but if you aim to become a good musician, a good artist, someone with actual knowledge on the arts rather than the capitalist hungry industry that only cares about how many followers u have on IG…. Go somewhere else, BIMM is not a place to learn music, it’s just an expensive course on how to sell your product and don’t even fall for that, because teachers won't care about you, unless you are already quite famous on social media and they can benefit from that, which in that case is stupid to even ask for their help, if they were that good they wouldn’t be even teaching at that place, so, save your money and create your music from your heart!

Popular Music Performance & Songwriting BMus (Hons)

University rating (3)

As a music student I find it’s super important to have access to the equipment you need which is why my uni has 3 buildings full of instruments, studio rooms, etc. However, the support received isn’t very helpful regardless of the situation!! For example, I needed counselling and the councillor was very condescending and unhelpful in my opinion. That said, the lecturers are all lovely and really help you learn and develop the best you can and even though tutorial slots are only 20 mins, they’ll always be willing to stay behind after class to ask any difficult questions we might have.

Music Business BA (Hons)

University rating (1)

It's dreadful. The priorities of BIMM are severely misplaced; they are far more concerned with appearing virtuous than they are actually helping students in need. Getting mental health support is an impossibility. Getting a good education via BIMM is an impossibility. Remaining engaged with your studies is an impossibility. The courses at BIMM are an utter, utter joke. Lectures are ran by 'industry professionals' whose experience goes as far as having 3K monthly Spotify listeners. Many are not trained teachers and are quick to admit this to bond with students. Unfortunately, a bond is not an education. What's more, instead of offering students a fourth module in the first and second year, the university forces students to attend, what is essentially, glorfied A-level tutorial sessions. In a course geared towards the music business, I do not need to learn how to donate to charity, or be respectful to others etc. Avoid. Avoid. Avoid this university at all costs, for you will be disappointed.

AVOID THIS UNI AT ALL COSTS!!! Most worthless course I have ever encountered- you can learn more on youtube for free!! All of first year was information covered in college so not worth paying £9+ grand for & second year i had a complete lack of support from lecturers which in the end gave me terrible mental health; making me drop out. Piece of advice: go to an ACTUAL university not this dump. My biggest regret is going here but at least I clocked how bad it was halfway through so i could at least save a bit of money. If only i could get a refund.

It’s in a perfect location, brilliant teachers and support from student services, I think space can sometimes be an issue as we share the building but there’s ways around that, and it doesn’t effect any lessons
