Welcome to the University of Portsmouth

Welcome to the University of Portsmouth. I am very pleased that we have established ICP as an Associate College of the University. This partnership allows students to begin their Pathway at ICP and study on-campus at the University of Portsmouth. This extends the reach of the University both globally and academically, and gives an opportunity to take a Portsmouth degree to many aspiring students from overseas who may not otherwise be ready to move directly into undergraduate or postgraduate studies with us.

At Portsmouth we foster a thriving cosmopolitan community in which we value the contribution to campus intellectual and social life made by our international students. We believe that we have a healthy and mutually enriching environment for both home and overseas students. I wish you every success in your ICP studies and in your exciting new life in Portsmouth. I look forward, in due course, to hearing of your progress through one of our degrees and eventually I hope to welcome you at our Graduation Ceremony where we can celebrate your academic achievements.
