Founder and principal of the Oxford International College of Beauty, Erika Oswin, began her career path in Beauty Therapy in 1980. Over the following 10 years she gained vast experience in the beauty industry owning and managing four successful hair and beauty salons whilst teaching beauty therapy part time. Recognising a niche in the market for quality beauty therapy training, Erika set up the Oxford International College of Beauty in 1990, the first beauty school in the region.

Since opening the Oxford International College of Beauty in 1990, after many years experience owning several hair and beauty salons and launching my own skincare brand, I have succeeded in establishing one of the country’s leading private beauty therapy colleges.

My professional expertise and continued enthusiasm for the beauty industry enables me to fulfil my role as Owner and College Principal, Director of the award winning Skincare Clinic and recently acting as an Ambassador for CIDESCO, as a schools inspector in the UK and Southern Ireland.

I believe professional qualifications give students every advantage when seeking a new career in beauty therapy and as well as offering international qualifications, I have developed my own Oxford International College of Beauty Diploma to support the high professional standards I continue to uphold. Passionate about the standards of beauty therapy training and the further development of therapists in the workplace, I continue to provide discerning students with the high professional standards of education and care and am committed to helping all students achieve a successful career in this exciting industry.
