Tuition Fees

Studying a degree is a big commitment in many ways, not least financially. You will need to consider tuition fees, living costs and other expenses such as transport, textbooks, food and accommodation.

The main expense will be tuition fees. Students studying a Bachelor course pay tuition fees on a trimester basis. Tuition fees are not payable during industry training trimesters unless part-time study has been arranged and students may be paid during industry training trimesters. You must complete all prerequisite subjects before starting your industry training. Similarly, postgraduate students pay tuition fees on a semester basis and tuition fees are not payable during the semester that you complete your industry training research project unless part-time study has been arranged.

International students must study full time

All  international students must study full time. We have prepared the following guidelines to assist international students to better understand their study commitments.

  1. International students must maintain a full-time study load while enrolled at ICMS.
  2. A full-time load is normally considered to be a study load in any given trimester/semester which will allow a student to graduate in minimum time (the standard progression pattern).
  3. A student may apply to the College for a reduction in load in any trimester/semester setting out the specific reasons for such application. The College will decide each case on its merits. Any approved reduction in load must allow an international  student to complete the award within the time limit imposed by the student visa.
  4. A student who is granted a reduction in study load will still be considered as a full-time student provided the study load in any given trimester/semester is at least 75% of the load specified in the standard progression pattern.

This means:

1. ICMS Specialist Degree (Note: Trimesters are numbered according to the chronology from the date of enrolment. This allows students to vary their subject choice with any term but lets us be specific about a full-time load)

Trimester 1 5 subjects for standard progression pattern; Approval may be given for 4 subjects minimum
Trimester 2 5 subjects for standard progression pattern; Approval may be given for 4 subjects minimum
Trimester 3 Industry Training – Full time IT or a combination of part-time IT and academic study which is equal to or greater than 75% of a standard pattern load.    For example working 19 hours per week plus taking two subjects is greater than 75% of the standard pattern but 19 hours per week plus one subject is not
Trimester 4  Industry Training – see above
Trimester 5 5 subjects for standard progression pattern; Approval may be given for 4 subjects minimum
Trimester 6 5 subjects for standard progression pattern; Approval may be given for 4 subjects minimum
Trimester 7 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 8 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 9 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum

 

2. Bachelor of Business Management

Trimester 1 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 2 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 3 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 4 Industry Training – Full time IT or a combination of part-time IT and academic study which is equal to or greater than 75% of a standard pattern load.  For example working 19 hours per week plus taking two subjects is greater than 75% of the standard pattern but 19 hours per week plus one subject is borderline – two is safe.
Trimester 5 IT – see above
Trimester 6  4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 7 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
Trimester 8 4 subjects for standard progression; In exceptional cases approval may be given for 3 subjects minimum
