Best place to study

published

Educators are professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable of the content they are teaching. Course work is okay, as it ranges from group work, projects, and individual assignments. The educators give some classes on time to work on assessments/ assignments which is good. The value of money is great, and the environment in IKON Sydney campus is safe.

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.

Voice and sound elective 2021 Brisbane

published

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

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.

Fantastic courses with sound advice

published

I am enrolled in an Ikon course and am loving the content, the trainers and the people broadly. Ikon's courses are certainly unique and the process prior to enrolment was nothing less than fantastic, with Ikon's course advisors providing sound advice - with my interests at heart. I spoke to multiple course advisors and staff who were warm, empathetic and tried to understand my position as much as possible. I would recommend studying with Ikon to anyone wanting to work in a therapeutic arena or grow as an individual.

Absolutely adored every part of this uni and the course

published

I had the most wonderful year at the Ikon institute. I have been at university for six years in total now and never have I experienced such warmth and support from lecturers and tutors. The course content was wonderful and I grew tremendously over the year as a result of the beautiful people at Ikon. I have recommended this university to all of the people who have asked about studying Art Therapy. I will miss you Ikon!

A Terrific Enviroment to Learn and Grow

published

I am a current student at IKON in Melbourne and could not speak more highly of the hands-on teaching and support of this campus. The respect and care from the tutors make learning so much easier. Administration staff support definitely 10/10. Nothing is too much trouble and students are always greeted with a warm smile. LOVE THIS PLACE!

A special place !!!

published

I also am a current student who has studied at two other colleges and unis. I have found the teaching and especially the administration staff to be extremely accommodating on the Melbourne campus. I was once before a micronism in a massive sea of learning.... alone. But now I feel attending Ikon I am a nurtured being with a name, gaining unique knowledge, unique experiences in a unique space, So thank you !!. I feel privileged to have been accepted into this degree and being on this journey with me and to one day working in a special unique industry. :)

The teaching is good, but the admin and support staff make it not worth it.

published

As other reviewers mentioned - the admin and support staff are difficult to deal with. Calls aren't returned, emails aren't answered (or are responded to with none of the questions I asked addressed, making me wonder if my email had been read at all before the reply). I often received conflicting information on requirements for assignments.

The impression I got was of a lot of internal disorganisation, and that while the teachers did care - the admin staff did not, and the struggles I encountered made it not worth the money I paid. I wouldn't recommend going here.
