International applicants, who are sponsored by ICMP, are required to submit a personal statement alongside their full application form. We've put together some helpful guidance to  get you started here: Personal Statement Guidance.

Step 3: Your audition/interview

Once we have reviewed your application, we will contact you to book your audition/interview for your chosen course. Our auditions are very relaxed and free of charge and we will guide you through the process, supplying supporting literature to allow you to.

ICMP auditions can be held either onsite, at our Kilburn campus, or online, via Skype. We generally encourage applicants to attend in-person wherever possible, simply because it affords you the opportunity to tour our campus and get a feel for what studying at ICMP is really like. However, we appreciate that travelling to ICMP  isn't always practical and are therefore happy to accommodate auditions remotely a required.

We’ve been auditioning overseas students for many years via Skype. As such, our assessors are very experienced with this form of audition and our team will help you get the most from the experience.  We've also prepared some additional guidance to help you prepare for your remote audition.

Step 4: Making you an offer

One you have successfully completed your audition and we have reviewed your application, you can look forward to receiving a formal offer from us. 

Step 5: Accepting your offer

Once you have received your offer, we recommend accepting as soon as possible as we have limited places on all ICMP courses. Once you have accepted, you will receive a welcome pack with further information and guidance on how to prepare for becoming a student at ICMP. You will also gain access to a wide range of information and activities prior to your arrival.


For International students who require a student visa to study with us, following acceptance of your offer you will be contacted by your Admissions Advisor and guided through the UK visa application process.
