Payment Plan (Premium Credit)

Our Payment Plan option is provided through Premium Credit Limited, an independent finance company. Available on all courses; whether classroom or online courses, packages or VTCT qualifications*, where course totals over £299*. Spread the cost to make starting your beauty training towards your new career easier & more affordable!

(*Bookings totalling under £299 & Starter kits are excluded from finance unfortunately at this time.)

You have two options – to make direct debit repayments either over 6 months (6 instalments) or 12 months (12 instalments) with reasonable interest (representative APR of 7.6% for 6 months or 13.6% for 12 months*). Your first payment* is taken around 7 days after your payment plan is approved, with the next instalment by direct debit not until the next month making it easy to spread the cost. You can choose your preferred payment date for the instalments by direct debit, making it easy to plan repayments e.g. taken on 1st or 28th of each month.

Get a quote for finance easily online or over the phone. Apply straightaway if happy to proceed with the quote. Quick acceptance, subject to status.

You must be aged 18+, resident in the UK and hold a UK bank/building society account in your name, that supports direct debit payments. Credit is subject to status, terms and conditions apply. Course booking(s) must total over £299 and must not include any starter kits to be eligible for finance.

Our finance option allows you attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments. Once your finance is approved, our team will be in touch to arrange your training on the next available dates that are convenient for you. Training days can only take place once the first direct debit payment for your finance has been taken (usually around 21 days after approval). Starter kits are excluded from finance.

You can pay additional payments or repay in full early if you wish once the payment plan is set up.  The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc. You can also easily add further courses to your repayment plan once set up, subject to status, without needing to make an entirely new application.

*One-off fixed £5 facility fee added to the first payment only. Representative APR examples above based upon a £2500 loan.

    Brilliant course. Tutor Leanne was so helpful and friendly and made me feel totally at ease. I was nervous as I have never done any beauty training before and she put me at ease straight away. Brilliant service and I will one hundred percent be using again. Thank you very much!!

    I have done a few courses at the Cambridge and London venues and loved all of them. Staff is very friendly and professional at the same time which makes it easy to learn the theory and also the techniques. Teachers pay attention to each student and gives honest advises and support. I highly recommend The Beauty Academy for everyone.
