Study Options

Making the right decision about how you intend to study is an important step. Here's on overview of how things work.

On campus

We offer face-to-face learning at our Sydney and Brisbane campuses.

  • You will attend approximately 20 – 30 hours per week of classes and practical sessions, including in-clinic training.
  • Courses vary, but generally there are three trimesters of 14 weeks per calendar year
  • The ANCB Student Portal gives you online access to course materials, support services and college information

Online Learning (Distance education)

We offer some courses by distance education, which gives you the flexibility to study from anywhere in Australia.

  • Workload is approximately 10-15 hours per week
  • Courses vary, but generally you will have three study blocks of 28 weeks, with a maximum course duration of 90 weeks including breaks
  • Throughout your studies, we run 3 compulsory one-week residential workshops in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. These allow you develop the hands-on skills that are necessary for a successful career in the beauty industry.

    The next upcoming workshops will take place on the following dates:

    • Trimester 1 – start 13 May or 20 May for 6 days
    • Trimester 2 – start 2 September or 9 September for 6 days
    • Trimester 3 – 6 January or 13 January for 6 days
  • Like on campus students, you will have access to the ANCB Student Portal , which gives you online access to course materials, support services, an online forum and our distance learning orientation program
  • Once enrolled, our dedicated distance education tutors and support workers are here to help with any questions about the course or your enrolment, every step of the way.
