Students with Disabilities, Medical Conditions, and Learning Conditions


Our policy regarding students with disabilities, medical conditions, and learning conditions

Students with disabilities, medical conditions, and learning conditions may need support from our team and external agencies. Knowing about your condition can help us help you as best as we can.

  • We may consider candidates with conditions, but in order for a student to achieve and succeed in our programme and the industry, she will need to have adequate and appropriate support from outside the school as well.
  • Some conditions, such as uncorrected or uncorrectable severe blindness or deafness, can preclude a student from qualifying and / or working in our industry.
  • You must supply a written diagnosis from a qualified specialist or medical practitioner.
  • We bear no responsibilities if we do not receive written diagnosis as defined above.
  • We cannot give additional assistance or special considerations without written diagnosis.
  • We are not special education tutors and are under no obligation to supply you with one.

Making a false declaration is an offence under the Crimes Act 1961. The National School of Aesthetics reserves the right to cancel the enrolment of any student who has misrepresented him- or herself on his or her application or accompanying documentation.
