At ICMP we want you to excel in your academic life and studies, and to take full advantage of the opportunities that open up to you whilst studying music with us.
We know that many students require some extra support with this, for various reasons, and so we are very happy to provide a flexible and personalised support service for all our students - whether this is Additional Learning Support, support with Wellbeing and mental health, or support with Disability and access to facilities and learning resources.
Our Disability and Wellbeing Team is in place to help you access the support you require to fully engage and succeed with your studies.
We know that studying can be tough, likewise moving away from home for the first time. Life also has a habit of throwing obstacles in our way when we least expect them. The ICMP Disability & Wellbeing Team is there to help support you through the problems you may encounter whilst studying with us and also to ensure that those with specific support needs can access academic and non-academic support to help them succeed.
What the team offers
The ICMP Disability and Wellbeing team provides a range of services to students, including:
- Free screening for Dyslexia / Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD)
- Support with accessing a full diagnostic assessment for SpLD (e.g. dyslexia)
- Support and advice on applying for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA)
- Arranging and facilitating additional support within ICMP (disability, wellbeing and learning support)
- Signposting to specialist support services not provided by ICMP

We treat student wellbeing as a priority and acknowledge the challenges presented by life as a music student. Our Wellbeing Team reinforces our whole-college commitment to good mental and physical health and happiness. We can support students to locate the appropriate organisations and professionals able to offer direct support, whether this is within ICMP or with external services and organisations.
