Elite Athletes/Performers

The ICMS Elite Athlete and Performer Program is an alternate entry pathway for students hoping to start their studies in February 2022.

ICMS understands the additional pressures placed on students through significant involvement in sport and the performing arts and we believe this should be considered for entry to higher education. The ICMS Elite Athletes and Performers Admissions pathway is for students whose sport or performing arts commitments may have impacted on their studies.

If you believe you do not meet the criteria for Elite Athlete/Performer Pathway Program, you may be eligible for Early Entry or the Leadership Entry Program. Alternatively, make a Direct Application.
