The Diploma in Beauty Therapy offers stimulating studies in advanced facial therapy, electrolysis and advanced body treatments.

Add these skills to a knowledge of anatomy and physiology, cosmetic chemistry, and practical work experience, and you will be qualified for a range of beauty therapy roles.

Recent graduates, Ella and Aimie-Lee(external link), say the expertise and support of NMIT’s beauty therapy tutors played a key part in their success.

“The tutors are very positive and encouraged us to achieve our best and pass with high marks.”

Diploma graduates can also go on to further specialist studies and always stay up-to-date as new beauty therapy methods are developed.
