Everyone here [in Australia] says that New Zealand education in the [beauty therapy] industry is much better than Australia's. I agree 100%.

I have been travelling throughout New Zealand visiting various campuses with by new job. I have noticed the quality of workmanship from students, and how NaSA far supasses all of these!

NaSA has a fantastic way of approaching the client, the skin and body. All with such care and empathy! It has opened my eyes to see how other students are taught.

You all do a great job there, keep it up!

I am very proud to call myself a NaSA Graduate and have worked for NaSA!

[ZippityDoo Beauty] are extremely blessed on just how "busy" we have become already. This success is really the standards set by Catherine [Wouters] and her [education] team -- which, at the time, I was thinking, "Really? Do we need to...? How many times...?" But they're there to push you and reach a high standard in all aspects of beauty therapy.

I would like to say "Dreams are posssible" and "Success is easy"; all you need is support in the right areas, so utilitze NaSA and the team as a stepping stone for success.

CIDESCO Examiner's Report, July 2012

Over the past five years, I have been a client at beauty schools in Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch. Comparing the schools as a client, I have chosen the National School of Aesthetics as my training institution of choice for various reasons:

  • The simple observation is the students from NaSA are more competent and professional in practice, manner and confidence. From my observational experience, the trainers are more specialised, approachable and proficient;
  • The general impression and ambience of the school as a client and prospective student. From entering the doors, the place is inviting, comfortable and professional. This impresses me and I would relish learning in an environment like this;
  • NaSA has small classes. Throughout my study life, I have found that small classes are more conducive to my learning as opposed to larger ones.

My ITEC diplomas have proven my best asset, and I have been hired over English therapists as employers appreciate our [New Zealand's] training is so much better.

The school is very professional presented. All facilities are kept to a high standard. A well equipped lecture room. The school would be a pleasure to teach in and to attend.

CIDESCO Examiner's Report, December 2005

Our next fundraiser... is a fashion and pamper night... We have a number of beauty professionals who will be providing treatments during the evening... We need a much larger group providing treatments and I was hopeful that some of your students might be willing to give up some of their time to the cause... The people I have donating their time have told me that the National School of Aesthetics is the only place I can approach as they aren't prepared to work with students from anywhere else a definite compliment to your organisation...

I know that NaSA is an awesome school. I know this, because I had a good look around before making a choice about which school to attend.

The range of topics are comprehensive. Everyone I spoke to said NaSA was very professional, well organised, had robust systems, was leading edge and, although you'd be working very hard, a whole lot of fun, which is a testament to the tutors.

[A contact of mine] from the Tertiary Education Commission said to me that she thought NaSA was the best school in the country.
