Elite Athletes/Performers

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 the Early Entry Pathway or the Leadership Entry Program. Alternatively, make a Direct Application.
