Student Testimonials / Where are they now?

I really enjoy the course as you’re given a lot of freedom as a Year 2 Beauty Student. I find that the teachers are very professional and have very high standards, which will benefit us immensely for the industry.
We are encouraged to use our own initiative which is great practice also for the industry. I also like the fact that the class size is small so it means we are able to get more one to one teaching and get the chance to learn as much as possible.
