ICMP takes great care to ensure that our Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) of enrolment are consistent with both the law and sector best practice. It is essential therefore that you read and understand the full T&C’s before you make a commitment to enrolling on an ICMP programme. The full Terms and Conditions can be found here.

However, we understand that these T&Cs are extensive, so we have produced this overview to help you understand the commitment. Should you have any questions, please contact one of our Admissions Advisers who will be pleased to provide support. 


By accepting a place to study with us, you enter into a legally binding contract with ICMP. Full details of this commitment are contained in our full T&Cs, which you will be formally asked to agree to before starting your studies. Amongst other things, the T&Cs detail your contractual rights and obligations, along with those of ICMP.


Once you have firmly accepted our offer and all conditions are met, you will be invited to register for your programme via our online Student Gateway at which time you will be asked to formally agree to the T&Cs. Upon our confirmation that you have satisfactorily completed this, to include an agreement that your fees will be paid in full, a binding contractual agreement will then be in place between us. This agreement is made up of the T&Cs together with your admissions offer and the Debtor Management policy. In addition to this, we strongly advise that you familiarise yourself with the following policies before registering:

  • Refund Policy
  • Data Protection
  • Acceptable use IT Policy
  • Drugs and Alcohol Policy
  • Social Media Policy

All policies can be found on our Policies and Procedures page.


You have the legal right to cancel the contractual agreement between us during the “Cooling Off period” - this means within 14 days from the start of the teaching week. We will refund any tuition fees already paid to us by you or any financial sponsor. Any refund payable to you under this clause will be paid within 14 days of you cancelling the agreement. If you wish to withdraw after the cooling off period, please ensure you speak with your Programme Leader.


We will provide you with details about the time and place for your induction and ask you to bring various original documents including ID, qualification certificates and further documents if you are an overseas student. We will also verify that your fees have been paid in full, that Student Finance England will be paying your Fees, or other acceptable arrangements for the payment of fees are in place. Upon completion of induction to our satisfaction we will inform you of this by email and you may then proceed to study on your chosen full-time programme.


Programme tuition fees are detailed on our Fees pages and are confirmed in your Admissions offer. To accept your place, or continue your studies, we require that tuition fees for the academic year are paid in full at least 30 days before the start of the academic year. The only exceptions to this are:

  • if you require a CAS to study in the UK on a Student visa, a minimum payment of half of your tuition fees must be made before your CAS can be issued, with the other half of the fees expected at least 30 days before the start of the academic year
  • students who can demonstrate to our satisfaction that tuition fees will be paid by Student Finance England/Wales/NI/SAAS; or
  • exceptionally, where we permit fees to be paid by instalments or by other means.  

Where tuition fees are not paid on time, we may impose a number of sanctions up to and including termination of our contractual agreement and thus your studies at ICMP.    


After completing induction and starting your studies, if you decide you wish to transfer programme or withdraw from ICMP, the full T&Cs detail the process for this.  


ICMP has a legal obligation to ensure all students have the right to study in the UK so we may request documents and information from you to ensure we are meeting our obligations.

The T&Cs detail that students studying in the UK on a Student visa may be subject to additional requirements or limitations, for example a required level of attendance or limitations around programme transfers or intermittences. Students studying on a Student visa are encouraged to discuss any changes to their programme with the Visa Compliance Officer.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and the full T&Cs document. We look forward to helping you achieve your personal musical goals by enrolling on a Programme at ICMP, but it is important that you fully understand what you will be committing to. If you need further advice or clarification, please contact our Admissions team by email enquiries@icmp.ac.uk or by phoning 020 7328 0222.
