Honestly, it was amazing how much I was able to improve after learning just a couple techniques. During the beginning stages, I was able to make steady progress in my efficiency, which terminated in a massive improvement as I learnt about the BHS and mindmapping in the ascent stages. I was also able to stave off procrastination reasonably well, which had plagued me before joining the course. It was freaky how known the knowledge felt in my head, as I was able to recall everything with near-perfect detail even a week after learning it. I can't wait to get onto the higher stages and improve my efficiency even more

Honestly, one of the best decisions I've made. I keep hearing "invest in your future self!" and honestly have never really felt sure whether I was doing that until I got this course. I had never taken commerce in juniors years but now in class I feel like I'm connecting the concepts so much quicker than I would have before (because of prestudy). It's very exciting to know you're improving. iCanStudy has also helped me get my life together, honestly, I feel so comfortable structuring my day.

I was excited to go into year 12 but didn't really have some specific plan in mind for how I should study. Fortunately I was introduced to this course and it's changed my outlook on learning from how I can jam the information into my head into how I can actually learn and connect information. Just the first two units alone have helped me save 30-50 hours of learning within the last few weeks of school holidays.

Before I got ICS, I didn't really have a study method. I remember in grade 7 up to end of term 3 grade 11, I was proud of myself just re-writing and 'photocopying' my notebooks and thought it was really effective. But this ICS course has made me realised I was just a well in a frog, that was about to die. Thanks for saving me! I just wonder how much struggle and repetition of Kolbs Cycle Justin had to go through, and the persistence... it is beyond what I can possibly imagine.
Andy Jeong
Mansfield State High School, Year 11
Man, this course has helped me so much. I went from stressing so much due to my extremely high expectations of myself and not actually knowing how to study properly which lead to a lot of procrastination to actually knowing how to study, schedule and minimise procrastination. Massive thanks to the supportive community here too btw!
Luke Banwell
Luke Banwell
Golden Grove High School, Year 12
Before starting this course, I honestly had no idea how to study. It was either just me on my phone, hoping for the best on the day of the test, or me copying how all my friends took notes and made flashcards to feel as if I was somewhat studying. Although I was a high-achieving student at school, I knew that what I was doing did not seem right - after all, I cannot be doing this in Uni which will be far more difficult than year 11 and 12. And then this opportunity came and it was the best decision of my life. Even though I'm not even halfway into the course, I've found a way to study that actually works for me, and I can now see that from where I was at the start, I have significantly improved my retention of content and I always feel so excited to go to school. Most importantly, I hardly procrastinate! I've had so much time to do the things I love, such as being the leader of school clubs, volunteering, dancing... the list goes on. Saying this once isn't enough but... thank you Justin and the whole iCanStudy team!! I am eager to see what more this course will bring.

I'll admit- before I started ICS I had my doubts about whether it was worth the money/time invested and could instead use that time for studying. Now however, I realise that ICS is incredibly helpful for learning, with by far the best thing about it is the almost complete reduction of procrastination. I didn't think I was doing too badly in terms of studying, however ICS has made me become ridiculously more efficient with studying and I'm incredibly grateful to Justin and the team.
George Bartley
Prince Alfred College, Year 11
Enrolling in iCanStudy has truly been one of the best decisions I ever made. Going into my first year of VCE, I was filled with anxiety and constant stress. I am so grateful to the people in iCanStudy who have helped me improve drastically over the past few months and who will continue to guide me along my iCanStudy journey. Not only do I rarely procrastinate, am able to recall information and have more time to do the things I love, I am also starting to enjoy studying and am looking forward to class at school. It was hard to adopt some methods at first, however, they all proved to be extremely useful and I can't wait to develop even further!

I've been in this course for about 3 weeks now and the transformation of my study skills has been tremendous. Nowadays, I'm in class taking effective notes and actively learning in class whereas the people around me are just highlighting their textbook or making documents of notes, which really makes you feel special. I have learnt so much to this point and there is still so much more to learn.
Gurman Gill
Gurman Gill
Hume Anglican Grammar, Year 11
So far the course has been super helpful. It has definitely been a process trying to unlearn all of the inefficient techniques I have been using and realising that continuous flashcard dependency is hurting me more than helping. So far using the BEDS M, I have managed to gain more control over procrastination and honestly, as you make you're way through the course, it becomes such a distant possibility to ever quit because the level of progression you see within not just studying, but honestly everything is insane. Honestly, I have scoured YouTube looking for productivity fixes but the information in this course I have seen nowhere else and I highly recommend it! And I have just finished the second level with 7 more to go! So there is more to gain and a lot more to learn!

Frequently Asked Questions

If your questions aren’t below, you can chat with us.

The course is designed for students of any level, whether you’re a high school student looking to take back control of your grades, a university student wanting more time, or a professional looking to accelerate your skill acquisition and learning.

The course is specifically tailored for students who value proven methods and creating bulletproof systems to make learning fun, easy and more powerful than ever before.

If you’re looking to immerse yourself with other like-minded students who have already taken steps to adopt the ultimate study system, develop study skills proven to bring results, and increase your academic performance by studying less, this course is for you.

This course is not for those looking for a quick fix or magic solution. You will need to work diligently to receive the benefits. Rushing through the course will not produce effective results. If you are not in the mindset to put in diligent effort and apply yourself over time, please do not join the course. It will not be suitable for you.

We know that life is busy - particularly for students. This is why the course is designed to be manageable for even the busiest of students. The results that we see are based on students only committing 20 minutes a day (or every two or three days in some cases) - something achievable for practically everyone.

We’ve designed the course to fit into almost anyone’s busy schedule, so you can easily immerse yourself in the learning process.

We recommend beginning as early as you can as the benefits of learning these skills compound exponentially over time. We see any delay in getting started as missed growth.

The course is designed for the busiest of students out there. This means that you can work through the course at your own pace and we recommend only 20 minutes a day. This is the average pace our busy students take through the course to achieve a boost of 30% efficiency after 4 weeks.

Though starting earlier is better (around 9 to 12 months prior to any important tests or exams), it is still reasonable to expect improvements if you start as late as 1 month before a test. The improvements will obviously be less than if you had started earlier.

If your test or exam is in less than 1 month, there is probably not enough time, but you should at least avoid making the same mistakes for the next test!

It depends.

The course addresses each aspect of developing a bulletproof study system (procrastination, time management, note-taking, exam revision strategy, retention, etc.). We’ve designed this course to develop each of these in very close proximity, so you don’t neglect any aspects of your learning.

On average, our results show that our students become 30% more efficient after 4 weeks and 60% to 90% more efficient after 4 months.

Our recommended subscription for most students (and the most popular) is the 4-month subscription. However, most students will upgrade to an annual after tasting their improvements from just the first month.

If you know you are very serious about your academic and time management skills, even before signing up, the annual will be more appropriate for you.

Our techniques are backed in four different ways - a claim that very few others can make:

  1. The techniques are based on up-to-date research, unlike the overwhelmingly vast majority of techniques taught by many others.
  2. All techniques have been extensively "field-tested" by thousands of students since 2014, who have achieved impressive results.
  3. We have hundreds of students currently using and backing up these techniques to receive equally impressive results. Right now, one of our students is studying with our techniques while you are reading this.
  4. We offer a 30-day money back guarantee if it doesn't work for you. 

If you're unsure about whether this course will help you to achieve your goals, speak to our student advisor who can assess your situation and give you an opinion on how suited the course if for your level and goals.

Not at all! While Dr Justin presents like the teacher that always wished you had, the feedback and community are integral parts of the learning experience.

By focusing on the content 20 minutes a day, you can watch 1 video and already learn a new technique to take into your study. In fact, most of your learning occurs through applying these techniques within your study, which isn’t a problem for most students.

Having access to 24/7 feedback from teaching staff and a community of like-minded students provide unlimited opportunities for learning. These learning opportunities mean you can save hundreds of frustrating hours trying to figure it out on your own when someone else has already seen your issue before and knows the exact solution you need.

These techniques have been tried and tested for over 7 years before creating this course with over 500 students who have been able to achieve success since launching. That's why we’re confident to offer a 30-day money back guarantee. We haven’t found one person who has gone back to their previous techniques once they’ve learnt how to use our techniques properly.

With this 30-day money back guarantee, there's nothing to lose by trying it out.

Honestly, we do not understand why these highly effective study systems and techniques are not taught at school. We are not taught how to effectively learn and even the teaching that is provided is years behind the research at all times. One possible reason is that they require proper training and guidance to master, unlike active recall which can be used near instantly with no practice. 

Knowing how crucial and game-changing these techniques are for our students, our mission is to globalise this knowledge and fill in the gap given by the education system.

No, we have students ranging from year 7 to professional business managers to surgical residents who are learning these techniques to advance their learning efficiency.

However, for high school students, we have specifically dissected each of the techniques and applied them to each of your subjects for each Australian and New Zealand curricula so that you know exactly what to do.

Yes. This is one of the most important aspects of accelerating your skill growth.

You begin the course by filling out highly specific questions in the diagnostics quiz. This will identify the particular weaknesses you have and the areas to focus on in the beginning.

Throughout each stage of the course, we will give more targeted quizzes that will allow you to track your progress, and moreover, we will teach you activities and processes to track your progress day-to-day to ensure you’re hitting your goals as quickly and easily as possible.

Yes! This is one of the biggest highlights of our course. You can ask the teaching staff or the community of like-minded students for feedback at any time.

There is also an opportunity to submit your work for expert feedback by Dr Justin Sung and clear, tangible action points on what the next step is for you.

Every month we also gather for a 2-hour live clinic. This is an opportunity for students to ask questions to Dr Justin where he can holistically answer your question live. During these sessions, Dr Justin also teaches very timely tips during each stage of the year to prepare you in the best way possible.

Yes, in more ways than one.

iCanStudy takes a step up from tutoring so that you can learn and master the skills required to create an extraordinary assignment from the beginning. Instead of always drafting students' work we teach you everything that goes into planning and creating the perfect assignment response.

This means that, soon enough, your work will be of such high quality that you don't even need help. Rather, students will be asking you for help instead!

We know from experience that having your work drafted does not teach you the adequate skills to improve your writing fast enough to keep up with the increasing challenges of the academic years ahead, so we focus on teaching you what’s most important.
