ICP WELCOME & ORIENTATION SEPTEMBER 2022

We are pleased to finally have you at ICP. It’s been a long journey but we promise that your time with us will be worthwhile. We know that you will need time to settle in your new home before you can start your classes so we have organised a series of events for you to join. This will be a great chance to make friends with fellow students and experience university life.
