Graduation ceremonies

At The French Beauty Academy, we believe in celebrating success – and we do it in style.

Our Graduation Ceremonies, held twice a year, are glittering gala affairs where students use all their new-found knowledge of make-up, grooming and presentation to transform themselves for the red carpet.

In the presence of family and friends, it is a time to reflect on and applaud the hard work and dedication they have put into their studies as each graduand is presented with their official Diploma or Certificate.

Our most outstanding students are further acknowledged by our special award categories and prizes:


Representing the excellence of The Academy, the most outstanding Diploma of Beauty Therapy student will be honoured as our Valedictorian.
