Applying to study at ICMS as a domestic student means you are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, or a New Zealand citizen. As a domestic student applying to ICMS you have two options. You can apply directly to ICMS or through the Universities Admission Centre (UAC).
Your step-by-step application guide
Step 1: Choose your course
Find out which of our ICMS degrees and diplomas are the right fit for you. Consider your interests, career goals, and the level of qualification you wish to attain.
Step 2: Explore your entry options and apply
Direct entry into ICMS for postgraduate students
Postgraduate study is for students who have already graduated from a Bachelor degree or equivalent and would like to undertake further study. Make sure you meet the postgraduate entry requirements and submit your application directly with ICMS.
Direct entry for undergraduate students
If this is your first degree then you are an undergraduate student. At ICMS we believe that attitude and ambition are not always measurable by your ATAR. Our Direct Entry option is based on an application interview and your performance in individual HSC subjects (or equivalent) related to your degree, not your ATAR. Tuition fees can be covered by FEE-Help (Australian citizens only).
Applying via UAC for undergraduate students
We recommend that you apply directly with ICMS and also through UAC. One of the best reasons to apply via UAC is that you may be considered for one of our ICMS High Academic Places. These places are awarded on the basis of an application interview and ATAR (or equivalent). Hard work deserves to be rewarded so our High Academic Places will mean that some of your tuition fees are subsidised by ICMS.
The ICMS High Academic Places are only available to our February student intake. To be eligible you must apply though the Universities Admission Centre (UAC) and include your chosen ICMS course(s) in your list of preferences. UAC guides are available in early August – find ICMS in the UAC Guide or visit the UAC website.
All UAC applicants will be considered for an ICMS High Academic Place at the College. Students who are not offered a High Academic Place are eligible for direct entry or alternative entry.
Step 3: Attend your personal application interview
We encourage our students to be brave and ambitious. We interview all applicants to ensure that you are committed to a successful career as a management professional. Your interview will be one-on-one with an ICMS staff member and will take approximately 20 minutes. It’s not a test! We want to get to know you and this is our way of recognising that there are other important factors besides academic results, such as enthusiasm for your course, that will determine your success at ICMS. We’ll contact you about your interview once we receive your application.
Step 4: Accept your offer
After your interview we will asses your application and issue you an official Letter of Offer. To secure your place at ICMS you’ll need to accept your offer. Simply follow the instructions in your offer pack.
Step 5: Book your accommodation
If you intend to live on-campus at ICMS you’ll need to book a room. Make your online accommodation booking early as places are limited.
Step 6: Come to Orientation Week and enrol in classes
Welcome to ICMS! Now you’re ready to start life as an ICMS student. Come along to O-Week, enrol in your classes, explore the campus, meet your classmates and enjoy all the fun.
When to apply
For undergraduate courses, ICMS has three trimesters per year (February, May and September) and you can start your qualification in any of these trimesters. For postgraduate courses, ICMS has two semesters per year (February and July) and you can start your qualification in either of these semesters. Applications should be made at least two months prior to the preferred enrolment date. Late applications are accepted, however places at the College are limited.
Undergraduates wishing to be considered for an ICMS High Academic place in the February trimester will need to apply through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) and adhere to their application deadlines. 2019 UAC applications open early August 2018 and on time applications close 30 September 2018. After this date increased application fees may apply.
