Which course is for me?

With entry-level courses, where no experience is necessary, to further study for existing wellbeing professionals, Glasgow Clyde College has a course for you.

Some courses combine skills, such as NQ Introduction to Hairdressing with Make-up Artistry (Level 4), where you'll learn about hair colouring, cutting and make-up application. Others focus on specific areas, such as NQ Spa Therapist with Complementary Therapies, where you'll focus on treatments like a Thai foot massage, ear candle and sinus drainage and facial massage.

Glasgow Clyde College offers courses which provide you with the chance to learn skills and then put them into practice, so keeping up to date with what's happening in the industry is vital.

Hairdressing students have enjoyed visits from Rainbow Room professional colourists, where they've had the chance to ask questions and discuss techniques. The Beauty Therapy students have a close relationship with the Carrick 5* Spa for work experience and the Complementary Therapists work with local Hospices and Hospitals to provide therapies for those with life-limiting illnesses.
