How to enrol

Kristina Reid

Study locally, work globally

Having begun studying the Diploma of Beauty at a young age, I found that the manner in which the course content was delivered by my experienced teachers allowed me to better prepare for the real world structures that are associated with effective communication and customer engagement skills. Completing my course also provided me with strong exposure within the beauty industry, and has immediately provided me with an opportunity to work on an internationally recognised cruise liner as a beauty therapist.
