About BIMM Manchester

Connected to a life in music

BIMM Manchester is part of the BIMM Group – Europe’s largest and leading contemporary music college.

We offer a full range of Higher and Further Education music courses including degrees and diplomas in a variety of different disciplines, such as guitar, bass, drums, vocals, songwriting, music production, music business, music journalism and event management.  The high quality of learning opportunities provided for our students has been commended by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) – the independent body entrusted with monitoring standards in Higher Education – in their Higher Education Review (HER).

BIMM Brighton was the first BIMM college to open (2001), followed by colleges in Bristol (2008), London (2010), Dublin (2011), Manchester (2013), Berlin (2015),  Birmingham (2017) and Hamburg (2018).

The eight BIMM institutes collaborate in perfect harmony, but at the same time, each individual music college has its own unique, independent regional identity which we continue to nurture.

Our students love BIMM Manchester because they get direct access to brilliant venues and facilities like Gorilla and the Manchester Academy for performing, Blueprint Studios for writing and recording, and The Thirsty Scholar for open jam nights. The city has long been one of the brightest music scenes in the world and is well known for embracing a wide range of genres and scenes, so who wouldn’t go mad for it!

The BIMM Manchester campus is located in two custom-fitted state-of-the-art buildings, which includes recording studios, mac labs, post-production suites, rehearsal studios, mixing rooms, performance spaces and teaching areas. Inside you’ll find industry standard equipment and software provided by the world’s leading musical instrument manufacturers who actively support and endorse us. Find out more.

Our BIMM Manchester tutors are all very active in the local Manchester music scene and beyond, and between them have toured the world, won awards, recorded with global superstars, and interviewed international icons at the top of their game. Put simply, they’re really well connected and eager to pass their knowledge, experience and guidance onto you.
