Early entry


A head start for career-minded students

About Early Entry

Early Entry is designed for high-achieving HSC students who want to secure a place at ICMS in February 2021 before sitting their final exams.

To be eligible, you need to demonstrate that you have a strong academic record and the potential to be an outstanding ICMS student through your passion and commitment for a career in one of the areas of study we offer: Business, Events, Hospitality, International Tourism, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Property, Sports Management, Accounting or Fashion and Global Brand Management. If you believe you do not meet the criteria for Early Entry you may be eligible for the Elite Athlete/Performer Pathway Program or the Leadership Entry Program. Alternatively, make a Direct Application.
