All Screen and Film School three-year undergraduate degree courses are priced at £9,250 for UK students.

Fees status

Your tuition fee charge will depend on whether you’re classified as a student from ‘Home’, ‘Channel Islands and the Isle of Man’ or ‘Overseas’. These classification rules are strictly determined by the UK Government.

Please see the definitions of fee status classifications below:

  • ‘Home’: Given to students settled and ordinarily resident in the UK. Also given to Switzerland or British Overseas Territories for three years prior to the course start date.
  • ‘The Channel Islands and Isle of Man’: Given to students who are from the Channel Islands and Isle of Man (the British Isles, but outside the UK). They are charged the Home rate.
  • ‘Overseas’: Given to students from other countries (exceptions include students temporarily outside the UK, those with UK Government refugee status and migrant workers).
  • ‘Irish Nationals’: Irish citizens resident in the UK, Islands or Ireland for three years before the start of their course and undertaking a course in England will be eligible for home fee status, tuition fee loans and Advanced Learner Loans from Student Finance England on the same basis as UK nationals. Additionally, Irish citizens will be eligible for maintenance support in England if they have lived in the UK and Islands for three years before the start of the course.

Applicants with the UK nationality should note that such nationality does not guarantee they’ll be classed as a ‘Home’ student. Various residence requirements must be satisfied.

If your fee status classification is unclear, you’ll be sent a questionnaire to complete so your status can be determined.

Student finance is available to eligible students for all Screen and Film School undergraduate degree courses. Tuition Fee Loans will cover the full course fee and Maintenance Loans are available to eligible UK students to help with living costs while studying.*

Student loans

We’re continually committed to ensuring the best value music education possible. We’ve recently registered with the Office for Students (OfS) – the new regulator of all Higher Education Institutions in the UK.

This has several implications for our institution and in particular, affects the loans that students at BIMM University and in the UK can receive in respect of their tuition fee.

This means that Screen and Film School students can now apply for a student loan to cover the full amount of their tuition fee (£9,250). Previously, the maximum loan available was £6,165.

You can find out more information on the guidelines and how to apply for a student loan at www.slc.co.uk.

*All fees quoted apply to the 2024/25 academic year only, are on a per annum basis and may be subject to change.
