Creative Futures Bursary

Whether seeking to further your professional experience, learn new skills or develop fresh thinking, a postgraduate course can help you on your way to a successful future in the creative industries.

Our new Creative Futures Bursary aims to enable and encourage those from lower-income backgrounds to pursue full-time or part-time Master’s degree studies at BIMM University.

Successful applicants will receive a cash bursary of £1,000 to support their transition into postgraduate study, buy equipment, or cover the cost of living.


“I’m delighted that BIMM University is launching a new Creative Futures bursary for postgraduate students. This contribution will support talented students who may have thought that postgraduate study was not an option for them. I know our exceptional postgraduate team will help all students make the most of our wonderful postgraduate provision.”
Professor Louise Jackson, Academic Director and Provost
