Manicures are an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but don’t always have the time to maintain them. French Manicure, in particular, is a popular manicure treatment all-year round, especially for brides and those who do not want colour on their nails, being timelessly stylish but understated.

UV gel nail extensions uses a no-odour system, requiring no additional products or chemicals (sometimes referred to as a ‘pre-mixed system’), using an ultraviolet (UV) light is used to cure/set the extension. This offers a more flexible nail extension alternative for those not suited to acrylics, wanting a natural looking tip still allowing the nail underneath to grow.

Gel polish is an essential skill for anyone interested in nail treatments; all of us want attractive hands but we don’t always have the time to maintain them. It is one of the most in-demand nail treatments throughout the country, specifically because of the high-gloss shine finish, zero-drying time along with no edge-wear, chips, scratching or dulling; ideal for those who lead a busy lifestyle.

This course package is suitable for complete beginners and does not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry.

They are also great to support applications for further training courses or indeed may be considered CPD for existing therapists.

We recommend purchasing student insurance (£20 + insurance tax) while studying and then our professional insurance package before you offer treatments to paying clients.

Representative Example: 19.9% APR (variable). Purchase interest rate 19.9% p.a. (variable). Assumed Credit limit £1,200. This example illustrates the typical cost of using PayPal Credit as a standard funding method. If you take advantage of our offers and promotions, including our 0% for 4 months offer, the interest rate that applies will be lower in many circumstances.

DEKO (Finance Plan) on Course(s) over £299 – Spread the cost over 12, 24 or 36 Months

Our Deko Finance option is available on all courses, diploma course packages and VTCT qualifications over £299. You have three options – to make repayments either over 12, 24, or 36 months at only 19.9%, all with just a 20% deposit.

A very important point regarding finance options: Many of our students are fairly young and may not have taken out finance before; perhaps they are living with mum/dad or boyfriend/partner and have not had their own name on an electoral roll for at least 3 years. Now, although it may seem a bit harsh it is very true that all finance companies will view your application very critically if any of the above is true. A way around this is to increase your deposit to say 40% but this needs to be done at the outset and not after you have been rejected.

If you feel that any of the above does apply to you then please just have a word with one of our Course Advisors before making an application.


The Deko finance option allows you book and attend your chosen courses with us while making affordable, monthly repayments to spread the cost. You don’t need to wait to book training sessions, you can complete all training as you wish, selecting from our available scheduled dates without delay. This is a great payment choice for those who desire the flexibility to manage studying around work commitments / childcare or even wish to complete their award as soon as possible; but who need the option to spread the cost into more affordable payments, over a longer term.

You can increase your deposit to reduce your payments and you can pay off early if you wish. No hidden fees or charges. The scheme is subject to the usual credit checks etc.

Our courses have been designed following over 29 years experience in delivering private beauty training. We understand the requirements of our students and our Virtual Academy courses are delivered in an easy to follow way, with the webinar accessible on your mobile phone (or most tablets and PC as you prefer).

Comprehensive course manuals written to the highest industry standards and accessible online whenever you require, allow you to develop the essential knowledge and skills to be successful within beauty.

Our in-house Support team is available through your studies and beyond.
