This course is a fantastic introduction to nails and is ideal for anyone who has an interest in the natural nail and who wants to learn how to care for their nails as well as their family or friend’s nails. You will learn about the function and structure of the nail and how to carry out a full manicure service.

An ideal starting point for anyone interested in joining an accredited course in the future or for those who would like to attend other non-accredited nail courses or workshops.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

During this course, you will learn about the function and structure of the nail as well as having the opportunity to carry out and receive a full manicure service, learning the treatment step by step.

We will discuss the different types of nail treatments and, if time allows, you will be able to have a sneak preview of Gel nail enhancements, Shellac nail treatments and nail art, all of which are available to learn on separate courses.

This course is designed for anyone interested in all aspects of nail care.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
