*$31,990 with no co-payment required for students eligible for VET Student Loans.

There are two main ways you can pay for this course: state and national government subsidies and loans, or private finance options such as loans and payment plans.

Government funding loan programs help eligible students cover tuition fees over the duration of the course and the loan is then repaid through the tax system based on income, while some states offer subsidies, meaning the government pays for all or some of your course.

If you are not eligible for government funding, students are able to borrow partial or full funding for this course from a number of private providers – or our recommended partnered provider Zeefi (formerly Study Loans) – with extended loan periods of up to 48 months. Students who privately pay for their Beauty Diploma course must pay a deposit to secure their placement.

Admissions Criteria

The French Beauty Academy is committed to providing and promoting non-discriminatory and inclusive enrolment practices, and to ensuring that students applying for enrolment into the Dual Diploma have the required aptitude and attributes necessary to reasonably achieve the qualification.

As such, all students enrolling in to the Dual Diploma – regardless of funding option – are required to meet the academic requirements:

  • provide an Australian Year 12 Certificate; or
  • provide evidence of successful completion of an AQF Certificate IV or higher qualification (where the language of instruction is English); OR
  • display competence at Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy through an approved Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test

If the applicant is under the age of 18 (at first census date) they must complete two VSL Parental Consent forms, (unless the student is certified as independent, in which case evidence must be provided of independence).
