BIMM Institute Dublin, part of the BIMM (British and Irish Modern Music) Institute, Europe’s leading
provider of modern music education, will host an ‘Accelerated Application Day’ on Friday, 25th August
from 1pm to 5pm at its Francis Street premises in Dublin 8. This application day is a unique opportunity
for students to audition for a place on the CPD Diploma course starting this September.
Speaking ahead of the Accelerated Application Day, Alan Cullivan, College Principal at BIMM Institute
Dublin said: ‘‘BIMM Dublin is already making a huge impact on the music scene, with our current crop of
students and recent graduates emerging as successful musicians, producers and entrepreneurs.
“There are always options for continuing education – we know that there may be some disappointed
Leaving Certificate students who didn’t get the results they expected and might miss out on a CAO offer,
and this application day is an opportunity for them, and indeed many others who are interested in
pursuing a career in music, to secure a course place for the 2017/2018 academic year.
“This is the second time BIMM have organised this opportunity for prospective students, who will find out
on the spot whether they have a place on a course in September. We are very excited to meet students
on the day and our staff, tutors and current students look forward to speaking to them about life at BIMM
The Accelerated Application Day will include:
• a presentation on BIMM Institute Dublin and a performance from current students;
• a music industry panel where performance tutors will give advice on studying at BIMM and the
Auditions will take place later in the afternoon, when students will find out directly if they have a place
on their chosen course.
