ENROLMENT PROCEDURE AND CONDITIONS
ENROLMENT PROCEDURE AND CONDITIONS

The minimum age for enrolment is 18 years.

The trade of the professional make-up artist requires artistic and creative qualities.

Our training courses are open to all.
However, admission to the school is subject to a selection interview.
For the interview, applicants must bring a CV and covering letter, plus an art portfolio if they have one.

Applicants will also be asked to sit a general knowledge test.

The interview lasts for approximately 1 hour and is designed to test applicants’ motivation for joining the Academy.

To guarantee high-quality instruction and individual attention, we focus on working in small groups, and for this reason the number of course places is limited.
