Applying to BIMM


11th January 2019


The UCAS Application Deadline is on Tuesday 15th January. To help you with your application, we’ve put together a quick FAQ guide to answer some of your most popular questions.

I won’t know my grades until June, should I apply now?
Of course! Most applicants will be waiting to receive their qualifications in the summer. You don’t need your results to complete your UCAS application or be considered for a place.

Where can I find the Entry Requirements for the course I want to join?
All our entry requirements are listed on the course page on our website. If you are applying from outside of the UK, we do accept equivalent qualifications from all over the world. The BIMM Admissions Team will be able to help and advise you on this.

I haven’t met the entry requirements, can I still apply?
If you are 19 or over when the course starts and don’t meet the academic requirements then there are options which you can discuss with our Admissions Team.

Can I apply for more than one BIMM College, and will I need to be assessed at each?
You are able to apply for multiple BIMM Colleges, but you will only need to complete one assessment.

We do also offer remote assessments if you are unable to travel to one of our colleges.

Do I need to have my assessment before submitting my UCAS application?
No, you can still submit your UCAS application before your assessment. Further information on the assessment process can be found here:

How long does it take to hear back about my application?

We will be in touch as soon as possible once we receive your application. Please be aware that January is an extremely busy time, but you are welcome to contact our Admissions Team directly if you would like to follow things up.

Can I apply as an International Student?
Yes! Find out more here:

If you have any more questions please contact our Admissions Team on 01273 626 666 or email [email protected]. Please note the team are very busy during this time, but will get back to you as soon as they can.
