Introducing the Student Voice Team

Feedback from students is highly valued by ICMP and vital to the continued improvement of our provision. Putting students at the heart of everything we do, our academic committees include student membership to ensure that students are fully involved in the decision-making process.

We also have an established system of Student Reps with a Student Senate led by a Student President and Vice-President. The post of Student President is central in the Student Voice cycle of ICMP. The president coordinates a range of activities and is invited to attend a range of committees and meetings to ensure the student's voice is present in all relevant discussions. The Student President is supported by the Student Vice-President. 

These roles are the figureheads for the ICMP Student Body and represent the student voice on top-level committees with ICMP Senior Management. Supporting the President and Vice-President are the team of Student Officers.

If you would like to contact any of them, please do so via my.ICMP.
