Metservice have issued a heavy rain warning and strong wind warning for Christchurch for later today (Tuesday, 20 February 2018) through until at least 3 PM tomorrow (Wednesday, 21 February 2018). A warning means the threat is imminent and is extremely likely to happen.

All students have been advised, on our Facebook page and in class this afternoon, that The National School of Aesthetics will be closed on Wednesday, 21 February 2018.

We will advise students, via text and our Facebook page, and the public, via our Facebook page, if the school has to remain shut on Thursday, 22 February 2018 due to Cyclone Gita. We believe, at this stage, school will be operating as normal from 22 February 2018 onwards and, unless we advise otherwise, and all students are expected to attend class as normal.

If you are a current student and the weather conditions / road conditions are hazardous where you live or on the route to school, do not endanger your life. Please text or call in to let us know you are not going to be able to make it in due to this. We appreciate your honesty in this matter.

Stay safe!

All students have been advised, on our Facebook page and in an assembly on Monday (19 February 2018) morning, that we are keeping our eye on Cyclone Gita. Cyclone Gita is making landfall on New Zealand’s South Island, and the effects are expected to be felt throughout a large chunk of New Zealand, Christchurch included.

We will advise students, via text and our Facebook page, and the public, via our Facebook page, if the school has to shut due to Cyclone Gita. School will be operating as normal, unless we advise otherwise, and all students are expected to attend class as normal.

If you are a current student and the weather conditions / road conditions are hazardous where you live or on the route to school, do not endanger your life. Please text or call in to let us know you are not going to be able to make it in due to this. We appreciate your honesty in this matter.

Streamlining Enrolment Requirements

The introduction of the Fees Free scheme in 2018 has created a slight issue with our enrolment requirements, specifically when it comes to a deposit on a programme of study. In short, Fees Free students no longer need a Public Trust account if they are under the $12,000 GST inclusive cap — and the majority of our eligible students are — while students who are not Fees Free do need to continue with the Public Trust account.

To even the playing field and ensure consistency among all people enrolling with us, we have dropped the deposit requirement and shifted it to a $100 non-refundable enrolment administration fee.

This makes this enrolment requirement easier and more straight-forward for our students to understand, no matter how they are funded or what type of student they are (domestic, international, new, returning, et cetera), and ensures we can give the correct advice and level of service to all students.

In 2018, the non-refundable enrolment administration fee is $100 for all enrolees in all programmes. This is the same exact price the deposit was when it was in place.

The non-refundable enrolment administration fee requirement is applicable for all further programmes starting in 2018 onwards, and our documentation is being updated to reflect this.

To learn more about the enrolment administration fee, please see the Enrolment Administration Fee section on our Enrolment page.

Please contact us if there are any questions about this change.
