1. Obtain Clearing Number
2. Single choice applicants must top-up their fee to UCAS to £23 (an additional £11)
3. Call BIMM on 01273 840 346 to provide your Clearing and ID Numbers and to check on places available
4. BIMM will advise if you can put them down as a choice on UCAS Track
5. Music Business and Event Management applicants will need to send a personal statement by email for marking
