Why did you choose the course?

I’ve been interested in the laser industry for years and I believe this course prepares you to enter the industry fully equipped with in-depth knowledge about everything an aesthetician needs to know regarding lasers treatments. 

Did you attend an Open Day prior to starting at the College? If so, did you find it useful?

Yes I did, mainly to meet my potential lecturers, as I had already decided to do the foundation degree. The Open Day was really helpful as I could ask all the questions that I had to the tutors directly.

Has there been any guest lectures from industry? If so, have they been useful?

Yes, I found them so helpful, as it gave me an idea of what it’s really like to work as an aesthetician. For example the responsibilities the practice carries when working with clients is a lot higher compared to when you’re a beauty therapist, so it was useful to hear that.

What has been your highlight of studying at Newcastle College?

The challenge of the course work. It has been stressful, but I feel like I’ve learnt so much over the years. The pride and joy of reaching high grades and leaving the institution feeling well-educated and ready to enter the industry.

Any words of advice for any student considering studying at Newcastle College?

Newcastle College is a brilliant institution to study at, the lecturers are supportive and the facilities are great. If students are planning to study a degree at Newcastle College University Centre, they will be guaranteed one to one support and access to the best facilities when studying their degree here.
