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 successfully collaborated to instigate remote teaching and learning, giving you the means to continue your course, achieve your goals, graduate, or progress to the next stage of your studies. We’re extremely proud of what our staff and student have achieved so far, and are looking forward to welcoming all our students – both new and continuing – as usual in September.
The prospect of starting the new academic year at university in September may be concerning for many students, particularly given the raised levels of anxiety and worry at this time, but we’re here to set your mind at ease. It’s true, there are many uncertainties – after all, it’s impossible for us to know exactly how or when the ‘lockdown’ will be eased, what social distancing measures will look like in September, or when our international student colleagues will be able to return to London. But we’ve already considered, planned and prepared for a range of scenarios, and have various high-quality and 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, current 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 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.
Alongside 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 detail relating to studying at ICMP during this period.
If you require additional support during this period, or moving into the next academic year, please get in touch. We are here to help and support you in whatever capacity we can.
Please contact the Academic Support team (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your Programme Leader in the first instance.
