Our student testimonials



Karlie McGunigle
Diploma of Management
Graduate 2016

“I love the moral support from the Ivy teaching staff and fellow students. The Business and Management Bootcamps were a great experience to be a part of. Through the Bootcamps I was able to power through my course material and I even finished a whole subject in one day!

I couldn’t have achieved my qualification without the continuous support of my Trainer & Assessor. My trainer was so motivating, especially when I wanted to give up. Through phone calls and regular emails, I stayed on track. Now, I have opened my own photography business with my friend. Obtaining my qualification has given me the confidence to start and manage a business.

As a result of my positive experience, I have recommended Ivy to my family and friends – my sister-in-law has just started studying with Ivy!

I feel an overwhelming sense of confidence, happiness and excitement now that I have graduated. I feel so accomplished and ready to see where my future will take me.”



Melissa Crossman
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Graduate 2016

“It has been a dream of mine to study Beauty Therapy. As a mum of young children, Ivy College offered me the flexibility to work towards my dream career while still working part-time and taking care of my kids.

Studying online gave me the chance to study whenever and wherever I wanted. This made it so much easier as I didn’t have to cut shifts at work or sacrifice time with my family in order to complete my studies.

During my time at Ivy, I made some valuable connections within the industry thanks to my experience at work placement. The beauty workshops were also a fantastic opportunity to transfer my knowledge into practice all while meeting the friendly Ivy Trainers & Assessor. Having the opportunity to meet other beauty students at the workshops was a great experience as I was able to build relationships with other students. I know that the connections and the network that I built at Ivy during work placement and the workshops will benefit me in establishing my beauty career.

To anyone considering studying online, I would recommend Ivy College to you. The staff are so friendly, the flexibility makes things so much easier and there is support available 7 days a week.

I am so excited about my future. Since graduating from Ivy I have actually been approached by the business I did my work placement with and am now working as a Beauty Therapist at the salon. I am so thrilled! Dreams do come true. Thank you Ivy!”



Lisa Pham
Diploma of Management
Graduate 2016

“I chose to study at Ivy College to get my career started, even if at the time, I was still figuring out what career path that would be! Just the simple act of enrolling and starting at Ivy gave me a better idea of where I wanted to go.

To stay motivated during your studies, you just have to remind yourself of why you’re doing this, even if that means telling yourself to just sit down and do it. Allow yourself to take breaks and use the resources you have around you, i.e. your Trainer & Assessor, forums etc. because this helps so much with keeping yourself on track. If there’s one thing that I’ve learned from studying, it’s that you should make the most of it.

I was lucky enough to do an internship through Ivy. I learned that if you want something you have to be willing to work for it, even if it means stepping outside of your comfort zone. So if you’re not motivated by why you’re studying or what you want to get from it, think about how you would feel if you didn’t use the opportunity as much as you could have. Don’t be afraid to be proud of what you could achieve.”


“I began studying Business and Management at Ivy College as I wanted to upgrade my skills so I could apply for managerial positions. I also wanted to keep up to date with my administration knowledge.

The support and guidance I received from my Trainer & Assessor and the Ivy staff was great. Knowing that I could always email my trainer and get a quick response gave me continued confidence.

Since graduating with my qualification I have been promoted and am now a supervisor to a team of administrators!

I would definitely recommend Ivy to my family and friends – the flexibility, support and guidance of the friendly staff has been fantastic.

Finally having the qualification in my hand has given me so much confidence. Thank you Ivy for giving me the opportunity to achieve my career goals.”



Stewart Clarke
Diploma of Management
Graduate 2015

“My motivation for studying with Ivy College was to upgrade my skills to obtain employment and to be above the average applicant. What I enjoyed most about studying with Ivy was that I could complete my assessments in my own time, allowing me to study at my own pace. When I needed help, support was only a phone call away.

My experience at Ivy was fantastic – the Business and Management Bootcamps were a great way to stay motivated and to get one on one time with my Trainer & Assessor. I would definitely recommend Ivy to my family and friends as my experience was so great. I feel fantastic for having graduated and I am now employed in a great job. I’d like to thank Ivy for the opportunity to study and achieve success in obtaining my qualification in Management.”



Christine Millson
Double Diploma of Business & Management
Graduate 2014

“Throughout my working years, I always felt I needed to do a course to further my education but never had the courage to take it on. I worried that I was time poor – bringing up three children takes a lot of time, how would I cope?  Would it be too hard?  Was I smart enough? Studying the Double Diploma Business & Management with Ivy College, I was supported at every step of the way.

The application process was made easy by the Ivy team, who were extremely helpful in guiding me through the website and learning materials. My Trainers quickly became my mentors, and were always on hand to answer any queries or concerns I had tackling each subject. It was simply a case of sending a quick email, which was always answered promptly and efficiently.

I would like to extend my gratitude to all of the wonderful staff at Ivy who helped me gain my qualification in Business & Management. I’d highly recommend Ivy to anyone who wants to start a new journey to improve their career prospects.”



Marjoleine Felton
Diploma of Management
Graduate 2016

I chose to study management with Ivy College because I wanted to increase my skills for my career goal of managing a nursing home. Throughout my studies my Trainer & Assessor was extremely supportive and empathetic towards me particularly as I had a few health issues during this time. I really appreciated the way she cared for me. A qualification in management has allowed me to build my career and gives me a great foundation for my future.

I would highly recommend Ivy to family and friends as studying online was great and the team is really supportive. I feel such a sense of pride after graduating and I’m so excited for the future. I’d like to thank the support staff at Ivy, particularly my Trainer & Assessor for their kindness, support and patience whilst I was completing the course!



Claire Sempf
Diploma of Website Development
Current Student

“I started studying with Ivy College because I really wanted to study website development and I didn’t really enjoy doing it at University. The online study Ivy offer is the perfect alternative for me. Rather than the rigid timetables offered at University, I am able to structure my study around my lifestyle. That’s the thing I love the most about Ivy – the flexibility that comes with studying online. I can study whenever and wherever I like!

The support at Ivy is fantastic. My Trainer is very supportive and extremely helpful. He is always available and I can book a session with him at any time!

Ivy has truly helped me to build my career in website development by providing me with the skills and knowledge to become a website designer/developer.

I would highly recommend Ivy to my family and friends as you can study anywhere, anytime. Your study hours are flexible and the team offers so much support.”


“I began my beauty course with Ivy College last year. I wanted a career change with a goal to eventually own my own beauty business. I like studying with Ivy  because I can study and manage my life from home. I am a single parent so I need a flexible style of learning.

My Trainer & Assessor encouraged me to attend workshops and I am so glad I did! It was a great opportunity meet other students, who were a wonderful group of like-minded individuals. There was a high standard of learning and the hands on experiences were very valuable. I enjoyed working with other students and listening and learning about how they manage their online studies with their commitments. I now regularly meet up with other Ivy students to study and practice beauty therapies.

Another thing about Ivy is that they are empathetic and so understanding. I had a personal crisis and felt overwhelmed with studying and managing life. They supported me and were happy to give me a two-month break while I got back on my feet and have encouraged me upon my return to study.

I would definitely recommend Ivy. It is a great way to learn if you have young children at home and need that flexibility.”


“My Ivy Trainer & Assessor is very supportive and understanding. He always motivates me and continues to believe in me which is something I really appreciate. He understands that we all need that flexibility when studying especially when other commitments can stand in the way of our work. He does a great job of reassuring me that I can obtain my qualification and achieve my career goals.

I would recommend Ivy College to friends because it has been such a great experience for me so far. The flexibility has been a major advantage. When I was researching schools to study, Ivy offered the most flexibility and support. If you think studying online means studying alone, let me tell you this is not the case. I have so much respect for him and he has made me so driven to work towards graduation.”

Diploma of Events
Current Student

“After being a volunteer, I decided to pursue Events as a profession and after exploring my options, I found that Ivy offered the best course and study support. I recently attended the Event Management workshop in Perth. The workshops are a great way to visit a range of venues, get tips about how to excel in the industry and understand how events work from an organiser’s perspective. The Ivy Trainers & Assessors have been great, they’re always supporting me and answering any questions.”



John Davidson
Diploma of Events
Current Student

“If you’re after direction, Ivy College will help you find it. I would recommend Ivy to my family and friends as they are a great source of knowledge with great Trainers & Assessors who are willing to teach you anywhere, anytime. I recently attended the Event Management workshops in Brisbane and found it a valuable addition to my course.”



Sarah Campbell
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Graduate 2016

“My Trainers at Ivy College always put in such an effort to help me with my assignments. They are always there encouraging me to become the best beauty therapist that I could be and I am extremely appreciative as I could not have asked for a support! In a strange way, I’m actually a little sad that I’ve finished up at Ivy as it is such a great place to study with such amazing people! Although I am so excited for my future as a Beauty Therapist and I would like to thank everyone at Ivy for taking the time to support and help me throughout this Diploma.”



Judi Shean
Diploma of Leadership and Management
Current Student

“My career goal is to start my own business and so I began my course in Leadership and Management. I love that I can study in my own time and at places that suit me. My Trainer & Assessor has been excellent, she is one of the best teachers I have ever had. She is empathetic, extremely knowledgeable and I am so proud to be one of her students.”



Beck Dickson
Diploma of Events
Current Student

Beck’s New York Study Tour experience:

“Wow! What an experience. Everything was planned with precision, allowing the perfect balance between seeing all New York has to offer, as well as experiencing the behind the scenes of events (the good, the bad and the ugly.) The knowledge I personally gained from listening to individual stories, experience and advice, has been invaluable. The site tours were absolutely stunning and it was fun to imagine just what could be done in each space.

The Ivy staff on the trip were fantastic. As it was my first time travelling without family or friends, I did find the concept a little daunting. I didn’t need to worry and I felt safe and completely cared for. It was a trip of a lifetime and I feel as though I have gained lifelong friends, mentors and my very own little NYC family.”



Justine Oldman
Diploma of Business
Current Student

“The staff at Ivy College have made this experience so incredibly satisfying! So much so that I am already looking at which course to study next. I highly recommend Ivy as it’s an awesome study option for busy people who need flexibility when it comes to studying. Being able to work at your own pace and the wonderful support you receive is justification enough that I’ve made the right decision!”


Serena’s New York Study Tour experience:

“I’m proud to say I was one of the lucky students to go on the New York study tour and wow, this was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. The tour allowed us to go behind the scenes of New York’s finest hotels and event sites, in addition to Couture Fashion Week. We had the opportunity to experience locations and events that you just couldn’t see as a member of the general public, we had VIP access! The site inspections gave me such a great insight as to what really goes into business and event management and how much New Yorkers take pride in the amazing history of their city.”



Ellen Lee
Diploma of Business
Graduate 2016

“I chose to study online with Ivy College to compliment my Bachelor degree at University. I wouldn’t have been able to study two qualifications at once if it weren’t for the flexibility that Ivy offered. By studying online, I was able to fit my course around my busy schedule and that has been key to my success. For me, the best thing about Ivy is the constant interaction you have with your Trainer and the personal relationship you build with them. I didn’t get this with my University degree course at all, which made it a much less personal experience than my experience with Ivy.”



Abby Muller
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Current Student

“The quality of education you receive at Ivy College, the ability to study at my own pace and the support and encouragement is like nothing else. My Trainer is bright, kind and full of knowledge. I’ve learned so much from her and consider her both a mentor and friend. The practical workshops were fantastic. I was able to practice, learn and critique my skills in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Plus, it was great to meet other students and Ivy teaching staff!

I’d recommend Ivy to anyone and everyone, it’s a great college that’s full of amazingly knowledgeable people. Studying with Ivy has given me the encouragement, the belief and the general ‘get up and go’ attitude to succeed in whatever I want to achieve.”



Karen Somera
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Graduate 2016

“Studying with Ivy College is great as your goals are outlined for you, plus your Trainer & Assessors monitor your progression so that you always know where you’re at in your course. My relationship with my Trainer was great. Sile, my Trainer was helpful, detailed, sincere, and really motivated me.

Attending the Ivy workshops was also a valuable addition to the course that ensured I received practical, hands-on experience. The workshops were a fantastic way to meet other Ivy students and learn directly from the Trainers who are so eager to share their skills and knowledge. Ivy has an exceptional collection of devoted staff and Trainers who genuinely want to assist students to complete their course and be successful in whatever area they choose.”



Charmaine Hogan
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Graduate 2016

“As a mother of two, the thought of doing a work placement with a host employer to cover the practical component of my Diploma of Beauty Therapy was daunting. I was nervous about being in the workplace and having to observe and learn the practical skills of my course.

The result was amazing thanks to Ivy. Not only am I now much more confident in dealing with small business owners and their clients, but the experience has given me a real taste for what awaits when I graduate. I’m so motivated to complete my diploma and get my dream job.

Recently, I started the waxing element of the course and was really nervous about this. But after a one-on-one with the salon owner, I completed several treatments and am now looking forward to doing more. Getting the chance to work in an actual salon has been a truly invaluable experience.”



Pam Ringin
Diploma of Management
Graduate 2015

I enjoyed the Business Bootcamps. The Trainers were great and were there to help with whatever I needed. It gave me so much more motivation to study and really helped a lot.

I love the constant help from all the Trainers and staff at Ivy. They have made it so easy for me to study and it is really easy to upload and submit assignments. The careers team has also given me advice on how to set up my resume.”



Isabel Contarino
Diploma of Events

“The flexibility Ivy College offers was a huge drawcard for me when I first enrolled. The ability to study from my own home and balance my family life has been a huge help. The Ivy team are great – my Trainer & Assessor has been very extremely supportive and without her, I feel I would have struggled a bit.”



Lana Palmer
Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Current Student

“I learnt so much at the recent Ivy Beauty Therapy workshops. The Ivy Trainer & Assessors are fabulous! I had 3 great days learning all about colours and techniques. The Ivy staff share a wealth of knowledge with their students and I just want to thank everyone for a really great experience. I’m feeling much more confident in my applications and colour selections now! “



Natalie Appleby
Diploma of Beauty Therapy

“I began studying at Ivy College to achieve my dream of becoming a qualified Beauty Therapist. The thing I like the most about studying with Ivy is that you learn so much, so quickly and everyone is very supportive. My Trainer & Assessor helps me work through my course materials and are always there for me when I get stuck on something.”



Rebecca Hall
Diploma of Events
Current Student

“I found the Event Management workshop to be extremely beneficial to my studies and personal development. As life can get in the way whilst studying, the workshop was a great way to get back on track and focus 100% on completing assessments. It was really helpful to have the support and assistance from my Ivy Trainer & Assessor whenever I got stuck on or misread a question, as I believe overthinking questions is my biggest struggle with the assessments.

I was one of the students who was lucky enough to participate in the New York Study Tour. The New York Study Tour was such an amazing experience and the Brisbane workshop just added to my learnings with a huge focus on course content and completing assessments.

I would highly recommend attending Ivy workshops to all other students, even if you are smashing through the course and don’t need any additional support, it is nice to put a face to the name of the person on the other end of the phone.

For me, the Ivy workshops were a huge confidence boost and were exactly what I needed as I had got to the point where I wanted to give up and forget about my dream. Good news, I am now focusing as much time as possible at my studies and always looking for roles opening up within the industry.”



Ryan Thomas

“The Ivy College Beauty workshops were an amazing experience – proving to me this was the right choice. Over the weekend I rushed out and bought mani/pedi kits to practice until my Ivy beauty kit arrives. I’ve also performed 2 massages, 2 French manicures and my first Deluxe Pedicare treatment (salt scrubs and masks YAY) so for that, my thanks should be passed on to the Ivy Beauty team who helped me put all of the beauty theory into practice.

During my studies, I managed to start by own beauty business. Since graduating, I hope to dedicate more time to my business and watch it flourish.”



Siana Sanger

“I like the fact that studying with Ivy College is flexible – I can study at 1am while the kids are asleep if I need to! I also love the fact that Ivy offers work placement training as well as workshop training. Studying with Ivy is really flexible, the staff are super helpful and they get back to you as quickly as you need them to. There’s a lot of support available and they are all very friendly.”


“I am currently in the middle of a Double Diploma Beauty Therapy and Salon Management and my Trainer & Assessor is amazing! She always makes time for me, talks me through everything I struggle with and constantly rings me even when we’re not scheduled for a call to see how I’m going. She is always so persistent and encouraging. Thank you Ivy!”


“The Business & Management Trainer at Ivy is wonderful! She is a fantastic support and sounding board. Available at all hours of the night and day and regularly online or on the phone late at night and after hours. She is always cheerful and willing to help and has a vast knowledge and experience in the commerce industry. She has made my experience at Ivy College so much more enjoyable.

I had a very slow start but have picked up in the last 6 months or so and have to credit my Ivy Trainer with assisting me in this.”



Stephanie Camm

“Ivy has been great. I can study in my own time and my Trainer & Assessors are so helpful! They really want to help and see me succeed which is so encouraging for me! They are also flexible which is a huge help for me as a busy mum. Thanks Ivy!”



Christie Brown

“I’ve recently completed the Event Management workshops in Perth where I completed 5 assessments in 3 days! I love that I can study at my own pace. The teaching staff at Ivy are always helpful, happy and very friendly. Without Ivy, I would have never begun taking the steps needed to build my career.”


“I found out about Ivy College through my cousin who shared a link with me on Facebook. My motivation for studying with Ivy and obtaining my Diploma is that I have a daughter and I want to be a better person for her. The care and support given to me by Ivy is amazing! My Trainer & Assessors have been my rock. Through my every fear and doubt, they have been my motivation, my moral support, and my personal cheer squad. They are the nicest people ever! I couldn’t recommend Ivy highly enough. I have never felt more a part of something with the support, guidance, and care of Ivy. This course has changed my life. Who knew a Facebook link could lead to something this amazing!”



Terese Dickeson-Skidmore
Diploma of Beauty Therapy

“My motivation for studying with Ivy College was my best friend and realising my passion – to get back into the beauty field.  What I love most about studying with Ivy is the option of studying at home. My Trainer & Assesors are amazing! They are just so helpful and supportive. Ivy has helped me realise my passion for what I want and what I want for my future.  If you don’t want to, or are unable to study in a regular class environment with rigid timetables, Ivy is perfect for you!”



Zoe Henry
Diploma of Events
Graduate 2016

“I recently attended the Event Management workshop in Perth. The workshops have been great and it’s nice to finally put a face to the name of my Trainer & Assessor… and I never thought I could get so much of my work completed! The Ivy workshops have allowed me to meet my Trainer& Assessor, experience different venues first-hand and enjoy the atmosphere of working with fellow Event students.

Everyone at Ivy is super helpful which makes asking questions easy and the studying process not so daunting. I chose Ivy because I love the set up they offer when it comes to online learning. From the beginning, the Ivy Course Advisor was so helpful when I enrolled which gave me confidence from the get-go. Thanks to Ivy I continue to be passionate about my course and I can’t wait to kick-start my career in events!”



Chrissy Apollini

“The Trainer & Assessors at Ivy are great. They are in contact with you every week – if it’s not email, it’s via a phone call. You learn a lot through your theory and through the workshops. You’ve got the support 100%!”


“Studying with Ivy College allows me to study anytime and anywhere, with or without my two children. The flexibility has been key to managing my family and study life. The support at Ivy is amazing, if I don’t know the answers, my Trainer is only an email away. Ivy has proven to be a great opportunity to gain skills in the beauty industry.”



Sarah Hallab
Diploma of Events

“Thank you to Ivy College for the last few days at the Sydney Event Management workshop! I am so exhausted but so happy with what I have achieved. The Ivy staff were so awesome and so helpful. It was great to finally meet you and discuss my course material face to face. After completing our work placement hours at Sculptures by the Sea, Bondi, our whole group went out for dinner and we all agreed that we feel so ecstatic with our workshop experience. We cannot thank you enough for all your help!”



Nancy Ellis
Double Diploma of Business and Management
Graduate 2016

“I feel like my studies have definitely helped me to get a better job. Before my course, I didn’t understand much of what I was doing, but now it is so easy for me to apply for a job. Ivy also helped me to get my resume together and look for jobs, which was a huge help.

I wouldn’t have the job I have now, if I didn’t have a qualification. I applied for a similar job before and they told me they are only taking people who have at least a Diploma, so I am definitely better off than I would have been.”



Immie Fairbank
Diploma of Beauty Therapy

“I have been studying Beauty with Ivy for four months now and I absolutely love it!

I recently relocated, and since then have made friends with other Ivy students in my area and they have been so supportive! We study and go to workshops together and also motivate each other to do our very best.

The support I receive from my Trainer & Assessor is amazing. She is always making sure I am up to date with my studies and ensuring I am happy and feeling motivated.

Anyone who is looking to enroll with Ivy College, just do it. You will not regret it! So far it has been the best experience of my life!”



Emily Holland

“Ivy is such an amazing college! Thanks to my wonderful trainers I am well on my way to completing my Diploma and I could not be happier. As well as encouraging me to do my best, they assist me when I stumble, making my study and practical assessment so much easier and more enjoyable.

I am certain that choosing a career in Beauty Therapy is the best decision I have ever made.”
