Mrs Devaney, Oxford, UK
I would like to take a moment to thank you Heidi and all the staff at OICB for doing such a great job at preparing my daughter Annie to become a beauty therapist.
As we explained before signing her up for the course, passing exams has never been her forte, but with close communication and support from your staff, we would like to express again our absolute delight that she passed all her CIBTAC and CIDESCO exams and is now a fully qualified professional with an internationally recognised certification.
We would also like to thank you for the great support you offered in helping Annie and the other students to find both work placements during the course and a job after qualifying. Annie followed up after Lizzie’s tip off about the job at the Spa at the Randolph Hotel in Oxford, and was offered a full time job straight away. Clearly the interview was important, but her CV did look excellent with the array of qualifications and work experience that she had gained whilst training at a college with such an excellent reputation.
In conclusion, we feel that the investment, about the equivalent of one year’s university fees, to get her qualified and working as a professional in the beauty industry was a very good one.

I popped into the college on the off chance to see what they had to offer as my daughter was set on going back to college and studying beauty therapy despite being a mature student in her mid 20s. She had enrolled in the local technical college but after viewing the college we found OICB was more than we could have hoped for and chose to pay privately for her education and don’t regret a moment. She received excellent training and care from all staff and within 10 months she was fully qualified to the highest possible standards with CIBTAC and CIDESCO qualifications. The college also found her a job with Virgin Active in Oxford which she loves, and a year on, she still enjoys every day at work! She made some life-long friends and was thrilled not to be the only mature student in the group. A big thank you to all the tutors for helping her to achieve her dream job and help her to enjoy her career in beauty therapy.

With an excellent reputation for training students to a high standard this family owned and run Beauty College understood the needs of my sixteen year old girl, who was to be living away from home for the first time, perfectly.
The comfortable accommodation has in place strictly adhered-to rules and regular checks to protect younger students – while at the same time encouraging them to learn to manage for themselves.
My daughter is extremely happy at the Oxford International College of Beauty and is successfully engaged in learning about her preferred career in the best possible environment. I’d be happy to propose this college to any parent looking to make the right choice of Beauty College for their daughter.

Whilst studying for her ‘A’ levels, our daughter was initially looking at University courses offering Spa Management. However, whilst researching her options during her final year at college, she worked part-time within a Spa and decided to also look at the possibility of becoming a therapist because she realised she would need to understand how to work as a therapist in order to understand how to manage them effectively.
The Oxford International College of Beauty offered her the opportunity to train and study in a professional environment whilst also experiencing life away from home. We were therefore delighted when she was offered a place on the full-time CIDESCO/CIBTAC course.
Our daughter has excelled in her studies and we are proud that she has graduated with such a prestigious qualification and we were thrilled that she was awarded CIDESCO Student of the Year 2014. We have the confidence that she will progress quickly in career and have the potential to become a Spa Manager in the near future.
We thoroughly recommend the college to any prospective student.
