Learning and English Assistance

 ICMS Support

The ICMS community prides itself on being more personal than larger universities. We want you to succeed - so we support you with an extensive range of support services. 

ICMS has programs in place to support not only your academic learning but also your English language development.


Our Student Success Centre (SSC) has Academic Learning Advisors on all our campuses who will help you to develop your academic skills and prepare you for the cultural change to tertiary student life. The Centre is open from Monday to Friday every week of the ICMS trimester. Advisors will also attend sessions at the City Campus to support students.

Take advantage of learning support available so you can achieve the best academic results possible. This could be in the areas of:

  • Effective study techniques
  • Note-taking skills
  • Report and essay writing skills
  • Referencing and citing information
  • Exam preparation techniques
  • Time and stress management
  • Academic writing
  • Oral presentations
  • Numeracy support
  • Learning support for students with a disability
  • Studiosity: 24/7 online academic support
  • One-on-one and group advice


The SSC also runs a Peer Assisted Learning Service (PALS). This is a student-driven program where high performing students volunteer to assist others in specific areas of their studies. Be it helping a student to grasp a key concept or steering them in the right academic direction, PALS mentors support students to succeed at ICMS.


Our SSC also offers specialist English language support for those students who want to improve their written, spoken and comprehension skills.

New students who need or would like additional English language proficiency before commencing study might like to start their ICMS journey with an Academic English Program through the Aspire Institute.
