Featured Programme

Diploma in Beauty & Body Therapy

Want to transform and enhance bodies and minds so people can look and feel like a million dollars? Well, when you graduate with the Diploma in Beauty and Body Therapy you’ll end up with these skills (and more) as a qualified beauty therapist.

From makeup and manicures to massage and electrolysis, you’ll acquire a comprehensive range of skills to apply every day in salons, day spas or even on cruise ships. While you study to be a beauty therapist you’ll engage with clients at ‘Refresh’, our on-campus beauty clinic. And, with your CIDESCO endorsement you’ll be recognised internationally.

Kylie Bindon, Graduate

EIT has given me the first step to a hairdressing apprenticeship as well as the confidence to believe I can be a great hairdresser. I wanted a job that didn’t feel like a job - because I enjoy it so much!
