Common questions about the course
It is expected that you will have two science A-Levels, one of which must be in chemistry, or equivalent.
The course commences with Basic Science units. If you have a science degree, you will find these units useful for revision; if you do not have such qualifications, you may find these units essential. We recognise that you may have worked in the industry for some time or be expert in a particular area and so find one or more of the units undemanding. Similarly, we anticipate that despite your background, qualifications and experience, there are likely to be units which you will find challenging.
The Diploma in Cosmetic Science is a vocational course and so complements many academic backgrounds, giving a final qualification tailored to the specific needs of the cosmetic industry.
In addition each applicant should have a minimum of a GCSE grade C, or equivalent, in mathmatics and English. Overseas students who do not have English as a first language should have passed the IELTS test with an overall mark of 6.5, or an equivalent qualification.
Once enrolled on our course our fees are non refundable and the space is non transferable.
