Special Notes about the New Zealand Certificate in Nail Technology Course

  • We need at least 8 students to be enrolled 2 weeks before the course starts for us to proceed with it.
  • * Programme fees are estimated. We know the actual fees for the following year when the Government approves our funding and releases its policies.
  • The lower domestic price is for students who attend classes the first 2 terms and perform self-directed tasks the second 2 terms. The higher domestic price is for students who attend classes in all terms. The 2-term inside class option is the only option available in 2019.
  • All students: You must pay a $100 non-refundable enrolment administration fee when you enrol. Your student loan or the Fees Free scheme will not pay your enrolment administration fee, so they will not pay it back to you. The non-refundable enrolment administration fee is a charge outside of your programme fees and extra expenses.
  • International Students: Please see the International Students section.
    • International students must pay all their fees when they enrol.
  • The National School of Aesthetics reserves the right to alter or change details, prices, dates, et cetera, on the courses at the school.
