ATAR: Not all institutions assess students based on their ATAR. ICMS do not believe that ranking is a reliable indicator of future career success. Instead we use a non-ATAR based system for admissions. We do not use ATAR adjustments or selection rankings either. ICMS student applications are assessed on: 


The table below gives an indication of the likely peer cohort for new students at the institution. It provides data on students that commenced undergraduate study and passed the census date in the most relevant recent intake period for which data are available, including those admitted through all offer rounds and international students studying in Australia.

Applicant Background Number of Students Trimester one 2019 Percentage of all students Trimester one 2019

(C) Work and life experience
(Admitted on the basis of previous achievement not in the other three categories)
(D) Recent secondary education
Admitted solely on the basis of ATAR (regardless of whether this includes the impact of adjustment factors such as equity or other adjustment factors)

Admitted where both ATAR and additional criteria were considered (e.g. portfolio, audition, extra test, early offer conditional on minimum ATAR

Admitted on the basis of other criteria only and ATAR was not a factor (e.g. special consideration, audition alone, schools recommendation scheme with no minimum ATAR requirement)

ICMS supports the participation by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people and are sensitive to ATSI knowledge and culture. To that end ICMS welcome ATSI applications. Those applicants are requested to apply with any documents evidencing work experience, training, previous academic achievement or evidence that supports the applicants character. The Deputy Vice Chancellor on a case-by-case basis will assess these applications.

  • Disability and Special Consideration

ICMS supports participation of applicants that may have disability, illness or family disruption and are sensitive to these circumstances. Admission to a course may be considered for applicants whose achievement has been compromised by specific situations beyond the applicant’s control, such as disability, illness or family disruption. Applications must be submitted with supporting documentation for example, a medical practitioner’s report. Admission will be determined on a case by case basis by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching).

Any supporting documentation must comply with the evidence requirements as follows: health practitioners report or letter; disability assessment report; New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) disability provisions application form; or NESA provisions approval letter.

Note: There are practical aspects to this course such as food and beverage service. Where appropriate, reasonable adjustments will be made to allow access to these courses. For more information click here.
