Student story

Image of a Car Chao make-up creation

“As a complete beginner starting the make-up course I was blown away with how I improved from very basic make-up knowledge to a professional make-up specialist. I felt completely ready after finishing the course to step into the workforce. With my cultural and language barriers, the teachers were always so friendly, nice and patient, supporting me wherever they could! The highlight was the work placement and getting so much work experience during the course, setting me up for a great career."
