Northern Beaches Campus

151 Darley Road, Manly NSW

Fondly known as 'the castle on the hill' (where the Hollywood blockbuster The Great Gatsby was filmed), the ICMS campus is a Sydney landmark dating back to the 19th century. The iconic sandstone building is the jewel in the crown of Sydney’s Northern Beaches. With its Gothic style and romantic central bell tower, the ICMS main campus holds a commanding position overlooking the azure of Sydney Harbour and the Pacific Ocean. The entire estate covers 20 hectares of parkland.

ICMS is a five-minute walk to famous Manly beach and Manly's village, well known for its shopping precinct, cafés, restaurants and beachside lifestyle. A few minutes’ walk in the other direction will lead you to the foreshores of the harbour. ICMS is also close enough to Sydney city — 17 minutes by fast ferry from Manly Wharf.

On-campus facilities include computer laboratories, tennis and basketball courts, café, bar and restaurant. Free wireless internet is available throughout the campus buildings.

ICMS accommodation

ICMS aims to ensure that students under 18 receive the appropriate accommodation, support and general welfare while studying with us.

How ICMS supports under 18s

If you love travel, ICMS offers you some amazing opportunities to gain an international study experience while studying your degree. Through the ICMS exchange program you can study at one of our partner universities in the USA. It’s a great way to get some international experience on your resume, make new friends, enhance your personal development, and learn about another culture.

You can choose from a wide range of courses offered, many of which may not be offered at ICMS. Regardless of what you’re studying, there is an exchange program to suit you. As exchange is part of your degree, it does not add time onto your program. You remain enrolled full time at ICMS and at the end of your exchange, your studies overseas may be credited towards your degree. If you are on exchange you won’t be required to pay tuition fees to your host university, making exchange both time and cost effective.
