Diploma of Beauty Therapy
Graduate 2016

“It has been a dream of mine to study Beauty Therapy. As a mum of young children, Ivy College offered me the flexibility to work towards my dream career while still working part-time and taking care of my kids.

Studying online gave me the chance to study whenever and wherever I wanted. This made it so much easier as I didn’t have to cut shifts at work or sacrifice time with my family in order to complete my studies.

During my time at Ivy, I made some valuable connections within the industry thanks to my experience at work placement. The beauty workshops were also a fantastic opportunity to transfer my knowledge into practice all while meeting the friendly Ivy Trainers & Assessor. Having the opportunity to meet other beauty students at the workshops was a great experience as I was able to build relationships with other students. I know that the connections and the network that I built at Ivy during work placement and the workshops will benefit me in establishing my beauty career.

To anyone considering studying online, I would recommend Ivy College to you. The staff are so friendly, the flexibility makes things so much easier and there is support available 7 days a week.

I am so excited about my future. Since graduating from Ivy I have actually been approached by the business I did my work placement with and am now working as a Beauty Therapist at the salon. I am so thrilled! Dreams do come true. Thank you Ivy!”


“I began my beauty course with Ivy College last year. I wanted a career change with a goal to eventually own my own beauty business. I like studying with Ivy  because I can study and manage my life from home. I am a single parent so I need a flexible style of learning.

My Trainer & Assessor encouraged me to attend workshops and I am so glad I did! It was a great opportunity meet other students, who were a wonderful group of like-minded individuals. There was a high standard of learning and the hands on experiences were very valuable. I enjoyed working with other students and listening and learning about how they manage their online studies with their commitments. I now regularly meet up with other Ivy students to study and practice beauty therapies.

Another thing about Ivy is that they are empathetic and so understanding. I had a personal crisis and felt overwhelmed with studying and managing life. They supported me and were happy to give me a two-month break while I got back on my feet and have encouraged me upon my return to study.

I would definitely recommend Ivy. It is a great way to learn if you have young children at home and need that flexibility.”

“My Trainers at Ivy College always put in such an effort to help me with my assignments. They are always there encouraging me to become the best beauty therapist that I could be and I am extremely appreciative as I could not have asked for a support! In a strange way, I’m actually a little sad that I’ve finished up at Ivy as it is such a great place to study with such amazing people! Although I am so excited for my future as a Beauty Therapist and I would like to thank everyone at Ivy for taking the time to support and help me throughout this Diploma.”

“The quality of education you receive at Ivy College, the ability to study at my own pace and the support and encouragement is like nothing else. My Trainer is bright, kind and full of knowledge. I’ve learned so much from her and consider her both a mentor and friend. The practical workshops were fantastic. I was able to practice, learn and critique my skills in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. Plus, it was great to meet other students and Ivy teaching staff!

I’d recommend Ivy to anyone and everyone, it’s a great college that’s full of amazingly knowledgeable people. Studying with Ivy has given me the encouragement, the belief and the general ‘get up and go’ attitude to succeed in whatever I want to achieve.”

“Studying with Ivy College is great as your goals are outlined for you, plus your Trainer & Assessors monitor your progression so that you always know where you’re at in your course. My relationship with my Trainer was great. Sile, my Trainer was helpful, detailed, sincere, and really motivated me.

Attending the Ivy workshops was also a valuable addition to the course that ensured I received practical, hands-on experience. The workshops were a fantastic way to meet other Ivy students and learn directly from the Trainers who are so eager to share their skills and knowledge. Ivy has an exceptional collection of devoted staff and Trainers who genuinely want to assist students to complete their course and be successful in whatever area they choose.”

“As a mother of two, the thought of doing a work placement with a host employer to cover the practical component of my Diploma of Beauty Therapy was daunting. I was nervous about being in the workplace and having to observe and learn the practical skills of my course.

The result was amazing thanks to Ivy. Not only am I now much more confident in dealing with small business owners and their clients, but the experience has given me a real taste for what awaits when I graduate. I’m so motivated to complete my diploma and get my dream job.

Recently, I started the waxing element of the course and was really nervous about this. But after a one-on-one with the salon owner, I completed several treatments and am now looking forward to doing more. Getting the chance to work in an actual salon has been a truly invaluable experience.”

“I learnt so much at the recent Ivy Beauty Therapy workshops. The Ivy Trainer & Assessors are fabulous! I had 3 great days learning all about colours and techniques. The Ivy staff share a wealth of knowledge with their students and I just want to thank everyone for a really great experience. I’m feeling much more confident in my applications and colour selections now! “

“I began studying at Ivy College to achieve my dream of becoming a qualified Beauty Therapist. The thing I like the most about studying with Ivy is that you learn so much, so quickly and everyone is very supportive.

“The Ivy College Beauty workshops were an amazing experience – proving to me this was the right choice. Over the weekend I rushed out and bought mani/pedi kits to practice until my Ivy beauty kit arrives. I’ve also performed 2 massages, 2 French manicures and my first Deluxe Pedicare treatment (salt scrubs and masks YAY) so for that, my thanks should be passed on to the Ivy Beauty team who helped me put all of the beauty theory into practice.

During my studies, I managed to start by own beauty business. Since graduating, I hope to dedicate more time to my business and watch it flourish.”

“I like the fact that studying with Ivy College is flexible – I can study at 1am while the kids are asleep if I need to! I also love the fact that Ivy offers work placement training as well as workshop training. Studying with Ivy is really flexible, the staff are super helpful and they get back to you as quickly as you need them to. There’s a lot of support available and they are all very friendly.”


“I am currently in the middle of a Double Diploma Beauty Therapy and Salon Management and my Trainer & Assessor is amazing! She always makes time for me, talks me through everything I struggle with and constantly rings me even when we’re not scheduled for a call to see how I’m going. She is always so persistent and encouraging. Thank you Ivy!”

“Ivy has been great. I can study in my own time and my Trainer & Assessors are so helpful! They really want to help and see me succeed which is so encouraging for me! They are also flexible which is a huge help for me as a busy mum. Thanks Ivy!”


“I found out about Ivy College through my cousin who shared a link with me on Facebook. My motivation for studying with Ivy and obtaining my Diploma is that I have a daughter and I want to be a better person for her. The care and support given to me by Ivy is amazing! My Trainer & Assessors have been my rock. Through my every fear and doubt, they have been my motivation, my moral support, and my personal cheer squad. They are the nicest people ever! I couldn’t recommend Ivy highly enough. I have never felt more a part of something with the support, guidance, and care of Ivy. This course has changed my life. Who knew a Facebook link could lead to something this amazing!”

“My motivation for studying with Ivy College was my best friend and realising my passion – to get back into the beauty field.  What I love most about studying with Ivy is the option of studying at home. My Trainer & Assesors are amazing! They are just so helpful and supportive. Ivy has helped me realise my passion for what I want and what I want for my future.  If you don’t want to, or are unable to study in a regular class environment with rigid timetables, Ivy is perfect for you!”

“The Trainer & Assessors at Ivy are great. They are in contact with you every week – if it’s not email, it’s via a phone call. You learn a lot through your theory and through the workshops. You’ve got the support 100%!”


“Studying with Ivy College allows me to study anytime and anywhere, with or without my two children. The flexibility has been key to managing my family and study life. The support at Ivy is amazing, if I don’t know the answers, my Trainer is only an email away. Ivy has proven to be a great opportunity to gain skills in the beauty industry.”

“I have been studying Beauty with Ivy for four months now and I absolutely love it!

I recently relocated, and since then have made friends with other Ivy students in my area and they have been so supportive! We study and go to workshops together and also motivate each other to do our very best.

The support I receive from my Trainer & Assessor is amazing. She is always making sure I am up to date with my studies and ensuring I am happy and feeling motivated.

Anyone who is looking to enroll with Ivy College, just do it. You will not regret it! So far it has been the best experience of my life!”
