BIMM Work Experience programme

Getting you ready for the world of work

Students at BIMM have the option to choose a placement module called Working in the Creative Industries as part of their course. Whatever your chosen path, our Careers Team, as well as dedicated lecturers and course leaders, will help you to explore, research and secure a placement or develop your own entrepreneurial project.

We are connected to over 400 employers. Over the last three years, our students have secured work experience placements with the likes of Sony Music, Universal, Warner Music, CAA, DIY Magazine, The Great Escape Festival, LD Publicity, Teenage Cancer Trust, AIM, Big Life Management, The Quietus, Believe Digital, United Talent Agency, Cooking Vinyl, Music Venues Trust, International Live Music Conference, Good Soldier Songs, Cherry Red, Chuff Media and East Side Music Days

Reeperbahn Festival Hamburg

Taking place over four days in September, Reeperbahn Festival welcomes acts from all over the world to come together and play the Reeperbahn strip. It’s one of the world’s most important music industry meeting places and, every year, BIMM students participate – either by volunteering behind the scenes at the festival or by having their own showcase to show the industry what they’re made of.

“The opportunities I’ve received through BIMM Institute are incredible. The connections here are insane...I’ve gained experience with companies such as Ground Control, The Warehouse Project, GoTo Live and have worked on festivals such as Liverpool Sound City, Lost Village and Tramlines since starting here in First Year.”
Via Culpan, Event Management

"BIMM is the perfect place to get hands-on experience in the music industry...The best way to find what suits you is to throw yourself into work experience. You will get to meet so many different people and keep yourself busy whilst still being productive."
