My time at ICMS has given me unforgettable moments and experiences. I have been able to make friends and experiences with students from all over the world and can now call beautiful and relaxed Manly my second home.

In addition to the six compulsory courses in your chosen area, you can freely choose two courses from the first Bachelor year at ICMS. And the best thing: you will study together with Australian and international students, right next to stunning Manly Beach.
If you choose to make the Diploma of Property Management you will do 9 subjects in three trimesters.
Your Gap Year is the perfect way to find out whether an economically focused program is the right thing for your future, and which specialization you are most interested in. Upon successful completion of your Gap Year, you will receive the Diploma.

Ideally, you will be able to transfer the credits you earned at ICMS to your future university in Europe (depending on your choice of university) or you decide to continue studying in Australia and enter the second year of ICMS directly.
