Success Story

Princess Daniels - Beauty Therapist

The Yorkshire College of Beauty is a great college to study Beauty Therapy.

“The teachers were very professional and were very helpful towards me if I had any questions or problems. I enjoyed my course and I learnt a lot in just the space of one year. I am now a Certified Beauty Therapist and I have done well for myself since I've completed my studies. Everyone at the college was amazing and made me feel right at home when I arrived from the Caribbean. I am so happy that I studied at The Yorkshire College of Beauty. "
