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 voice is present in all relevant discussions. The Student President is supported by the Student Vice-President.

Sultan-Olushegun ‘Sully’ Alabede Ososanya 
Vice-Student President

Songwriting student Sully came to ICMP from Spain in 2017, he's now in his second year of the BA(Hons) Creative Musicianship degree.

Sully is never bored at ICMP as there is always something going on ranging from events put together by the Events Team, Masterclasses with amazing professionals from the industry, open mics run by fellow students or a jam in the performance studio because a rehearsal was cancelled and people decide to jam.

Sully’s aim as Vice-President is to ensure that the student voice continues to be heard. ICMP is becoming a bigger and better institution as we speak and students must remain the centre, cause and purpose of that growth.
