Scholarships & Bursaries

We aim to actively support access to our courses from groups of applicants who are underrepresented in Higher Education or face financial challenges and hardship.  Some of those applicants may require more support than ever given the challenges presented by the cost of living crisis.

Details of all scholarships & bursaries available for the 2023/2024 academic year will be detailed here.

The Clearing Support Bursary is a scheme that supports the late entry of BIMM University students living in the UK. The bursary aims to support the cost of travel, accommodation costs and study resources as they transition to Screen and Film School. The award is worth £1,000, in the first year of study only.



Students will only be eligible for the Clearing Support Bursary if they meet all the following criteria:

  • Applied through Clearing to start an undergraduate degree for the first time at BIMM University starting September 2023.
  • Firmly accepted an undergraduate degree offer.
  • Fee assessed as a Home student (UK domicile) paying full-time fees of £9,250 per year.

Application process

No bursary application is necessary. There are a limited number of bursaries available. Awards will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis until all bursaries have been awarded.

Screen and Film School will notify successful students of the provisional nomination during Clearing 2023. The awards will only be confirmed once you have firmly accepted your Clearing place within 7 days of the offer being made and fully enrolled in September 2023.

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.
