At ICMP, we are fully committed to ensuring that as wide a range of students as possible are able to access our courses, regardless of their financial, social or cultural circumstances. We are also an equal access institution and believe in supporting, guiding and assisting deserving students in their studies. To this end, we have developed a series of awards, scholarships, bursaries and support activities to enable access to our courses. Many of these awards are supported by our industry partners, whose support in this regard is second to none.

Hattie Longfield Bursary

The Hattie Longfield Songwriting Bursary


Hattie Longfield was a successful London visual artist, a talented emerging songwriter and a much loved and respected member of our Songwriting Community at ICMP. 

The bursary set up in her name is from donated money which has been raised by Hattie’s friends, colleagues and family, and is designed to reflect her outlook on life and creativity. It is a fitting tribute to her desire to share and encourage her fellow writers.

This bursary will allow a talented female songwriter to benefit from 3 years of full time tuition at ICMP as well as joining the community, which includes numerous networking and performing events, and which Hattie helped us to build here in London. It would ideally suit someone who is keen to use this brilliant opportunity to get fully involved in developing their writing, attending and participating in events and collaborating with as many artists as possible. 

To be eligible for this bursary, applicants should be:

  • Female
  • Under 30 years old
  • UK National
  • Applying to study their first degree
  • Have achieved/expecting to achieve 300 UCAS points (or equivalent experience for applicants aged 21 and over)

Hattie was a talented and inspiring friend to our department and we are thrilled that this award will continue her name and association with us.

Financial Aid

The ICMP offers financial aid to applicants who are unable to pay the full tuition fees. For information on financial aid,  please contact our Admissions Team who will be able to provide you with more details.
