As London's leading contemporary music institute, we offer outstanding value for money to our students. You can access an outstanding educational experience, with unrivalled state-of-the-art facilities, expert tutors and extensive links to the music industry. An ICMP qualification represents a solid investment in your future as a creative artist/musician within today's music industry.

International students pay different fees to those from the UK. You’re usually classed as an international student if you’ve not lived in the UK/EU for the last three years. 

Fees status

Your tuition fee charge will depend on whether you’re classified as a student from ‘home’ or ‘overseas’. These classification rules are strictly determined by the UK Government.

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) provides information on tuition fees to help you assess your fee status. Their easy-to-use guides should give a clear idea of your status as either a home or overseas student.

If you're not sure what your fee status should be, or require assistance with anything related to financing your studies at ICMP, our friendly Admissions Team is on hand to help.

Access to student finance

Many countries run programmes to assist students to study abroad and we encourage you to investigate the options available to you. 

Prior to the UK leaving the European Union, EU citizens were eligible to access UK student funding. While access has now changed significantly, there are some instances where funding is still available. We have attempted to provide answers to the key questions we're regularly asked about below. Please contact us at if you're unsure of your eligibility.

I am an  EU, EEA or Swiss student. Can I apply for a student loan from the UK?*
Eligibility rules have changed for EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals and their family members who wish to commence courses in England in the academic year starting in August 2022. EU, other EEA and Swiss nationals not covered by the citizens’ rights provisions in the Withdrawal Agreements will not be eligible for undergraduate or postgraduate financial support from Student Finance England for courses starting in the academic year 2022/23.

What is the citizens' rights provision?
The Withdrawal Agreement, which came into force on 31 January 2020, sets out the terms of the UK’s exit from the European Union. This explainer aims to support understanding of Part 2 (citizens’ rights) of the Withdrawal Agreement, which gives UK and EU nationals certainty that their citizens’ rights will be protected.

People who are covered by Part 2 of the Withdrawal Agreement will have broadly the same rights to work, study and access public services and benefits as they did before the UK’s exit from the EU.

Who is eligible for a student loan from the UK?
You'll be eligible for a UK student loan if you entered the UK before 31 December 2020, and have applied through the EU Settlement Scheme (application deadline is 30 June 2021) and have received pre-settled or settled status.

Pre-settled status
To receive Pre-settled status you must have arrived in the UK before 31 December 2020 and lived in the UK, EU, EEA or Switzerland for three years immediately before your course starts. If you fall into this category, you may be able to access a UK Tuition Fees loan. Evidence will be required by the Student Loans Company (SLC).

Settled status
To receive Settled status you must have arrived in the UK before 31 December 2020 and lived in the UK for five years. If you fall into this category, you may be able to access UK Tuition Fees and Maintenance Loans. Evidence will be required by the Student Loans Company (SLC).

If you have any questions or are unsure of your eligibility, please contact

*This will not apply to students from Ireland living in the UK, Channel Islands or Ireland whose right to study and access benefits and services will be preserved on a reciprocal basis under the Common Travel Area arrangement.
