Since the coronavirus pandemic began, ICMP has been working hard to ensure students are provided with appropriate, high-quality higher education support and guidance. Members of the ICMP staff, tutor and student community have collaborated to introduce remote teaching and learning. This means that regardless of the latest COVID-19 situation where you’re located, you can successfully continue your course, achieve your goals, progress to the next stage of your studies and even graduate.
Currently, our Dyne Road site and Acton studios are open and all students can book and use our rooms, studios and other facilities for private practice, rehearsal, recording, study and assessments. Our sites are fully COVID-secure and appropriately staffed.
We’re extremely proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and are looking forward to welcoming all our students – both new and continuing – as usual in September 2021.
The prospect of starting the new academic year at university may be concerning for some, but we’re here to set your mind at ease. While it’s impossible for us to guarantee many things – like when life will return to ‘normal’, exactly what social distancing measures will look like in September, and when our international student colleagues will be able to return to London – we are prepared, with engaging alternative methods of study ready to implement quickly, should the need arise.
So, in the spirit of open engagement, we thought we’d address some of your most pressing questions, with the view to starting a conversation with you. We’re keen to understand what you’re most concerned about, what you expect from us, and how we can provide the choices and opportunities you’re looking for.
Understanding your individual needs
As part of our ‘Confirm your place' process which runs during the summer months, students and applicants will receive a survey asking about their needs so we can find out whether they’re financial, academic, equipment-based, wellbeing-related, linked to disability support, or a combination of these. We anticipate you'll have many questions for us, so we do invite and encourage your feedback.
Current students, please send your queries to our Academic Support team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
New students, please send your queries to our Admissions team on email@example.com in the first instance.
In addition to the information contained on this page, we have also detailed our approach to delivering higher education during the pandemic which was written in consultation with our current student body and provides further details about to studying at ICMP during this period.
