Your Interview

Showing you around, talking about what's expected of you and discussing your application

The interview process ensures you and other prospective students are to the quality and level we require for entry into our courses and further training at the school.

We remain committed to educating people serious about beauty therapy, nail technology and spa therapies to be the best beauty therapists, nail technologists and spa therapists they can be. The Ministry of Education, Tertiary Education Commission and New Zealand Qualifications Authority also want us:

  • to retain the majority of students attending a course (keep them from withdrawing); and
  • to ensure those students complete the course (keep them until the end of the course); and
  • to ensure the majority of those students completing the course do so successfully (give the right level of assistance so they can pass the course); and
  • to encourage graduates to seek and gain employment in the industry and / or to study further (gain a job in the industry or study further).

We have been and remain committed to this vision.


NaSA students and graduates from 2010 onwards may not need to attend an interview.

Students applying for any Statement of Achievement courses may not need to attend an interview.
