How to enrol

Maria Kocsmarszki

Diploma in Beauty Therapy

My dream is to one day own my very own business and TAFE Queensland is giving me the education and skills for me to achieve this dream. I find the teachers friendly, helpful and willing to listen if there is a problem. And I like the fact that I can get my practical assignments done on campus which means I don’t have look for a place that will help in my practical training. After I finish my beauty diploma, there are many areas I could chose to specialise in such as make-up, facial treatments or massage. But I am considering continuing my studies and gaining a more in-depth knowledge about laser technology treatments for the skin.
