If you can’t find a suitable proposed course date prior to enrolling, let us know using the form below and a member of our team will help you find a suitable date.

Why are some course dates not consecutive? 

The reason for this is usually to line up with a tutor’s availability. We believe that our tutors should be regularly working in the field that they are teaching. So sometimes, this means if a tutor is needed on set or needs dates reserved for jobs in the field we need to allocate course dates around the schedules of our working tutors. After all, isn’t it great that you are going to be learning from someone who is still 100% active in the business, We think so!



Completing this pre-enrolment questionnaire helps us to advise you which course or courses are best suited to you, and which ones will get you on the path to being a makeup artist in the area of the industry that you are most interested in.

Once we have received and reviewed the details you have provided you will be connected with a Student Development Advisor who will discuss the different options available with you and start creating a Personalised Education & Progression Plan that will be tailored to you and your needs.

The Student Development Advisor will also provide you with more information about what next steps are required to complete your enrolment and secure your place on an upcoming course. Eg. Payments, What’s Included, etc. and choosing dates from the course schedules.

We look forward to seeing you in class!
