UCAS Application Guide

FOR 2020/2021 courses

UCAS Extra is now Open.

UCAS Extra is now open and is an opportunity for you to apply for another course. If you’ve used all five of your UCAS choices and don’t hold any offers, you can now add one choice at a time. If you’re unsuccessful, or you decline a UCAS Extra offer you receive, then you can add another choice, until 5 July 2020. Find out more about UCAS Extra Here, or chat to our Admissions Team.

Completing a UCAS application is the next step in joining us at Europe’s largest and most connected music institute. Here’s everything you need to know about your UCAS application for 2020 enrolment. Alternatively, you can read our guide over on our blog.


When you apply to UCAS, you’ll be asked to submit up to five options for the courses that you’d like to study at the institutes you’d like to join. You’ll find all our BIMM Institute courses listed on the UCAS website along with our course and campus codes. To make an application through UCAS, you’ll need to go to ucas.com and register before you can submit any choices.


Your application will need to include the following:

  • A list of all your academic achievements, including any pending qualifications
  • A Personal Statement (under a maximum of 4,000 characters)
  • A reference from either a teacher, tutor or employer

For further information about UCAS submissions, please see BIMM Institute’s handy applicant guides:









Once your UCAS application has been received, we’ll invite you in for an audition/interview. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as a Skype interview or a demo submission. If you clearly meet the entry criteria for the course you’ve selected, we’ll offer you a place.

International applicants

Once you’ve applied via UCAS, you’ll be invited to attend an audition. If you aren’t able to attend in person then there are other options available such as a Skype interview or a demo submission.


If your audition is successful, you’ll either be provided with a ‘conditional offer’ (pending until we receive your exam results and certificates) or an ‘unconditional offer’ (meaning you’ve met the entry criteria for the course and don’t need to supply any additional information).

Offers will be announced via UCAS’s ‘Track’ facility.


If you have any questions regarding the UCAS application process, please complete our online application form to receive a call from a member of the Admissions Team. We will then discuss your entire application from getting you booked on to an Open Day, submitting your UCAS application, booking your audition or even just to make sure you are all set with accommodation, finance and qualification requirements.
