Entry requirements

Acceptance to enrol in any course at Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School is at the sole discretion of the Principal Mrs Geraldine McGuigan. No previous beauty experience is required, although a good general education with a minumum of 3 GCSE's or an equal standard of education is essential for the CIBTAC beauty therapy course, being  such a demanding course.  Our courses are incredibly flexible, diverse and open to all ages and both sexes. Minimum age for entry to any course is 16 years - no exceptions.

Interest free payment plan

At Bronwyn Conroy Beauty School we understand that financially funding courses can often be difficult. This is especially the case when many colleges require up-front, lump-sum payments from students, which is why we offer an interest free payment plan that is easy to manage and allows students to spread the cost of course fees. 

This payment plan has been specifically designed to help students pay their fees in full over the duration of the course, where tuition fees are split over six installments - interest free. The payment schedule will take the form of a deposit paid first to secure a place, and then the remaining balance remaining paid in instalments each month for 6 months. Full payment should be received 12 weeks prior to examinations starting. 

With this plan in place, students are able to study an exciting choice of professional beauty courses that offer high quality tuition, taught by experienced and qualified tutors in a supportive and encouraging environment.
