Diploma in Somatology

This is one of our aesthetic courses that offers tons of fantastic job opportunities in the beauty and wellness industry. This three-year, full-time course takes a particular look at health and skincare and offers a comprehensive, internationally recognised qualification perfected by the academy for over 36 years. Career opportunities stemming from this programme include working in skincare clinics, medical aesthetic practices, cruise liners, salons, cosmetic journalism, and even the ability to start your own practice.

Advanced Diploma In Dermal Aesthetics

The one-year Advanced Diploma In Dermal Aesthetics course has been developed specifically to meet the training needs of somatologists already working in the field of medical aesthetics. This is a distance learning programme that allows employed students to study while they work. Both online or on-campus contact sessions are available and independent study takes place with the help of study guides. Students who have completed this course will have plenty of doors opened to them in medical spas, medical aesthetic practices, and even dental spas.
