Why study with us?

Why choose to study at The French Beauty Academy?
Because we can change your life.

Our graduates constantly tell us that their time at The Academy was a transformative experience. They say they learnt to believe in themselves… because our teachers believed in them. They say they gained self-esteem and confidence… because we focus on personal growth. They say we set them on the pathway to a meaningful career and opened up a world of possibilities. Here are some other reasons you’ll fall in love with…

Flexible learning options

We understand that you may not be able to give up your day job to train in a new career – so we offer a choice of day-time classes, evening classes and online learning that you can do anywhere, at any time.

Our Uniform

First impressions count.  They are particularly important in our industry but also a crucial factor in securing your dream job.  As a student of the The French Beauty Academy, you’ll learn to stand out.

Career outcomes

All of the above means that our graduates are the preferred choice for industry employers and many of our students secure placements before they finish their course. We are constantly networking with industry and employers to ensure our graduates get first consideration and we have established a range of outstanding post-diploma internship opportunities in exclusive health retreats and exotic locales 

Industry experience

By the time you graduate from The Academy, you will have spent a significant amount of time working with real clients in real salons. This includes vital experience in our own Student Salon and an industry placement with one of our salon or spa partners.

Job search preparation

Not only will we introduce you to important industry contacts at our training days, education seminars and guest speaker programs, we’ll set you up to enter the job market with tutoring in application processes, resume writing, interview preparation, presentation skills and more.

Exceptional teaching faculty

Our teachers bring a wealth of global industry experience to the classroom – but, more than that, they bring their care and compassion. They are inspired by the opportunity to help our students create an exciting future and they will, in turn, inspire you to believe that anything is possible. 

State-of-the-art industry facilities

At our three purpose-built Robina and Brisbane campuses, you’ll get hands-on experience with the latest technologies and machines used in the leading treatment centres and medi-spas. You’ll also be working with a wide range of cosmetic brands used in the top salons, including MAC, Algologie and Lycon.

Training tailored by industry, for industry

For almost 30 years, we have been at the forefront of industry training, helping to develop the programs that are now used Australia-wide and we continue to work with industry to ensure our curriculum reflects the current needs of the workplace and the latest beauty trends.  You’ll also have access to our Industry Essentials Program – this is where we open our doors to our product partners and you reap the benefits in both learning and product samples for your ever-expanding kit.

Professional development and growth

We prepare our students for the uniquely sensitive role of a beauty therapist by guiding them through an inner journey of personal growth towards self-confidence, self-acceptance and self-love. We call it our Service Excellence Program … Sherelle French our Academy Director calls it our ‘finishing school for the soul’.

Our mission is to guide you on your journey…
