Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

New BIMM Imelda May Scholarship for Aspiring Music Professionals

It's a match made in heaven. BIMM Dublin have announced that they're joining forces with rockabilly queen Imelda May to offer one talented student an opportunity to take up a scholarship to study Commercial and Modern Music at the school, based in May's own beloved Liberties.

The school has quickly established itself as a major player in the development of Irish musical talent, and now one of the most successful native acts of recent years is getting involved in making sure the future is as bright as it can be.

Imelda says: "I was blown away when I visited the college last summer and met with all the students there. The passion of both the students and the teachers made a big impression on me. I suggested that a scholarship, if possible, would really benefit someone who is having a hard time but is of great talent and has the potential to fly with the right help, encouragement and learning provided by BIMM."

Now, it has become a reality, and the scholarship - valued at €12,000 over the four year period of study - will be open to all applicants through the CAO before February 1.

The school, with May's help, will be looking for an exceptional talent who possesses the drive and ambition to become a music industry professional. "I'm excited to help begin this opportunity for some very talented person who needs it," says Imelda. "Hopefully it will benefit all of us by delivering the next Phil Lynott, the next Rory Gallagher, the next Irish legend to conquer the world!" And so say all of us!


BIMM Dublin is part of the BIMM Group (The British & Irish Modern Music Group) – the UK and Europe’s largest and leading contemporary music college. We offer degrees and diplomas in a number of different disciplines, including guitar, bass, drums, vocals and songwriting and music production.The BIMM Dublin campus is spread between two buildings – our main building in Francis Street in Dublin City Centre, and an additional location a short distance away in The Coombe.
