Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Can I work full time and study?
Ikon recognises that our students need to fit learning around their current lifestyle and commitments. Where possible, the scheduling of all courses takes into account school and public holidays and also considers people currently in the work force. In many instances it is possible to work full time and study an IKON qualification however, you will need to be well organised and have some flexibility within your employment to attend training days.
Why do some courses have a Placement requirement?
Placement is an exciting opportunity and gives students a chance to explore different sectors of their particular industry and to validate their thoughts on where they would like to work once they have graduated. During placement, students are given the opportunity to practice all that has been learnt throughout the course, in a protective and supportive environment (without being expected to know it all!). The length of placement/number of placement hours varies by course to comply with the AQTF standards.
How can I pay my Tuition Fees?
Ikon’s courses are priced by subject or module. Students are able to pay via any of the options below:
- Tuition fees deferred via the Australian Government FEE-HELP loan scheme (if eligible).
- Payment upfront in advance of each trimester.
- Payment upfront in advance of each trimester and partially by tuition fees deferred via FEE-HELP
Ikon’s higher education courses are approved for FEE-HELP for domestic students. For more information about FEE-HELP, visit the StudyAssist website.
What will I receive upon successful completion of my qualification?

Do you offer Student Support?
We offer a variety of student support benefits including study skills workshops, student support staff, a dedicated placement officer and student counsellors, all with the aim of supporting you through the lifecycle of your learning journey.
Can I receive Recognition of Prior Learning?
Recognition of Prior Learning is an assessment process used to determine the extent to which a student has achieved the learning outcomes of a subject from earlier learning, experience or achievements. Where equivalence of prior learning can be established, the student is exempt from attending that particular subject in order to complete their course.
How much time out of class time do I need to allow for additional study?
This depends both on the course you choose and can also vary throughout the course. We encourage you to allocate 1-2 days per week of home study. If you are concerned about the level of commitment required, we encourage you to discuss your specific circumstances with the relevant Education Support Officer.
