We want a level playing field  and  equity  of opportunity , and  so  we have set up the  Fair  Access  Fund  to ensure students are supported  during their studies.

Last academic year, BIMM University awarded over 250 low-income household bursaries to first-year students to support their transition into student life, buy equipment, or get the support they needed.

Successful applicants will receive financial support packages of up to £1,500 per academic year. While we cannot commit to payment amounts before enrolment, we aim to allocate the budget to eligible applicants. We will confirm the exact payment amount and schedule post-enrolment.
