Correspondence Courses and Distance Learning

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority has not authorised us to offer correspondence courses. We are unaware of any beauty therapy provider in New Zealand offering beauty therapy correspondence courses. Offering correspondence courses in beauty therapy would be extremely difficult as approximately 70% of the internal time spent at any beauty therapy course deals with practical skills.

With beauty therapy and associated therapies being mainly practical in nature, achieving an employable practical standard cannot be achieved through correspondence. The only way beauty therapy and associated therapies can be learned to a strong practical standard is through supervision by a tutor.

In Case of Receivership and the Public Trust Account

In the case of receivership, liquidation (involuntary) or the revocation of NZQA Registration and/or Accreditation, your individual Public Trust account protects your paid fees. Individual means your student fee trust account pertains to you and is covered by an agreement between us and Public Trust.

Please see the Public Trust form section of the enrolment page for more information.


We suggest that students take out health insurance as well as insurance against theft or damage to personal property, in case of sickness, theft, or damage to property while attending the course or on the school grounds. We are not responsible for any damages or theft that may occur on the school grounds or through course-related outings.

International students are required to have adequate medical and travel insurance under the requirements set forth in the Code of Practice.
