At ION, we recognise students have their own learning styles.


We deliver the graduate diploma utilising a variety of methods designed to support your learning in this new and exciting area of study and how it links back to your practice. 

You will be studying with and learning from a group of like-minded professionals from a variety of clinical practice backgrounds and specialisms. Cohort sizes are small. 

Personal tutorials, guided online tutor and peer-to-peer discussions, fieldwork debriefing group sessions, and regular contact with module coordinators and the course leader via email, phone and video sessions will ensure that you get all the guidance and support you need to succeed; both academic and pastoral.   

It is recommended that you undertake between 20-25 hours of personal study each week. We encourage you to engage with course forums and to become an active member of the student body, as this will enhance your experience and support your learning. 



Continual improvement

Feedback is important to us and we continually look to improve what we do. You will have direct communication with our Dean. Student-elected representatives meet with the faculty and academic support services at biannual Student Voice committees. In addition, every student has a personal tutor and access to planned group tutorials.



Student support

With our long experience of delivering training, we also understand the importance of effective student support, both academic and pastoral. As a result, we offer a range of academic and non-academic support to our students, to help you get the most out of your studies.
