Before making my decision to enroll at QC I decided to email the school to ease a few of my worries. After receiving a lovely prompt response back I knew that I was about to make the right decision. I received all my course material in the mail in just a few days and was all set to begin my journey. The student portal is a great tool for all the information you will ever need while studying, and the staff is amazing in assisting you with any query.

Loving QC Academy! Just submitted my final unit in Master Makeup and still getting through Hair Styling, Airbrush, and then onto Pro Makeup. I've already started getting clients and am booked up 3 weeks in advance!... None of this would have been possible without QC Academy, and I've only been doing the course a couple of months!
