I am very happy in my beauty therapy course. The facilities for my course are excellent and of the highest quality. The products we use are the best brands available and there is no shortage of equipment. The teachers make learning fun and are very thorough in their work. The work experience options are fantastic and the extra training and qualifications are an added bonus. I would definitely recommend the College to anyone interested in a beauty course.
