Absolutely Great

published

This course facilitate Continual self reflection , curiosity of perspective and countless ways to transformed . The course content is great, and the caliber of teaching staff is exceptional, however accesses to course readings, course and subject communication is sub optimal at times. But always promptly resolved and staff are very accessible and easy to lease with.

Incredible education

published

I graduated as an arts therapist from the BAT course. Ikon has offered me an incredible foundational base to work as an arts therapist within my community.
The education is beyond any other institution offers arts therapy education (trust me i shopped around, and also attended a masters somewhere else and left).
The assessments challenge students to critically reflect on self, theory and lived experience.
I cannot speak highly enough about Ikon.

Another Brick in the Wall

published

In our assessments we are required to describe, evaluate, discuss, plan and talk about the importance, implementation and maintenance of the material. Unfortunately I feel in class we are not given the opportunity to fullfill these criteria. These way of learning is not stimulated in class as the learning is quite passive. The teacher reads slides for the majority of our online learning and the critical thinking and debating is non existent (face-to-face learning is also non-existent). She just deliver the lessons to get over and done with it.

Please go elsewhere

published

The academics have the hugest egos. The signing up process (admin staff) are incredibly rude and degrading. The receptionist who answers the phone is completely lovely. All the staff could learn from her. Please go elsewhere and save yourself a lot of money and heartache.

The content of this elective was at times difficult but the lecturer Elisa James was a world class voice and singing therapist. Amazing transformation was gained during the 5 day intensive

No support and fail to answer any queries

published

The worst educational provider I have been to thus far in which they never follow up ANYTHING and leave things UNANSWERED for months. I have never felt so unsupported as a student and would NOT recommend this school to anyone. The only decent thing was the quality of the teachers but educational support officer and management will leave you unanswered and frustrated - go elsewhere.

Disgusted

published

Was considering this course but have changed my mind due to the unprofessional time frame of marking assignments, lack of compassion to students with suddenness of an immediate family death, non humanitarian, no area to discuss perception, extreme lack of support to several students I have discussed this with

Poor support

published

The course itself was awesome. The Teachers were great. Too bad that the support the Students get from Ikon is very poor.

You will get minimal support when it comes to Placement and if your looking at an Exciting Graduation then forget about it.

Your support lasts until they get their final payment and then too bad, no more support.

I would not recommend study through Ikon. Go through someone who can provide a graduation.

Well done Ikon!!!

Eternally grateful

published

Studying at Ikon has been expansive, life-changing, and amazing. The course content was enriching, edgy and exciting, as were the teachers, who offered a high level of knowledge, wisdom, insight, and a whole of care and support. The staff, too, who constantly checked in on me to see how my studies were going, as well as enquiring into my personal life. I felt genuinely cared for. I have made such good friends as well and I am forever grateful. Highly recommend.

Amazing Education

published

I recently just started at IKON and I couldn’t believe what I am learning the course really does start with a bang!

The whole process from when first made contact with IKON has been truly amazing the person who I spoke to on the phone made sure that I knew what I was doing they couldn’t be more helpful.

Then classes started and WOW the content what you are learning in your first week, I have started other counselling courses at other institutes and this education is second to none.

Everyone at Ikon has been truly amazing from the person who enrolled me to the people I see daily on the campus, I couldn’t be more grateful at the opportunity that I have to study at IKON.

Wow seems like people either love or hate the Institute... I’m contemplating doing the Adv Diploma in Transpersonal Therapy & Art Therapy. A career change. I’ve done a lot of inner work and therapy and I feel it’s time to do what I fell called to do! I wish the IKON representatives would respond to some of the criticisms. Sounds like they were having administrative issues?
