About our Health & Skin Care course
At International Academy, we take a more professional approach to training than your average beauty school. Our health and skin care course spans 2 years and a wide range of subjects such as in depth skin science of dermatology and anatomy to massage and nails – we even teach you how to run your own business.
There is much more to the beauty industry than looking good, that is why our courses and lecturers cover everything you need to know about the health and wellness of the bodies largest organ – the skin.
Once your 2 year course is completed and you have met the National Qualification Framework (NQF) standards, you will have earned a National Diploma in Health and Skin Care.
We then offer you an additional third year of study that gives professionals the opportunity to equip themselves with advanced skills and the latest techniques in the industry.
Once you have passed your third year of studies, you will write exams to gain internationally recognised diplomas and certificates. There are optional additional examinations you can take with us to give you prestigious qualifications such as the CIDESCO Post Graduate Spa Therapy Diploma.
