The Diploma of Beauty and Spa Practice is offered through Torrens University Australia and brings a fresh, modern, careers-focussed perspective to higher education. Here’s what that means for you:

We FLIP the Classroom

The Diploma of Beauty and Spa Practice is designed around the principles of the ‘flipped classroom’ allowing you to learn through doing, not just through listening.  The flipped classroom model provides you with the opportunity to explore material at your own pace before class.  This might involve reading articles or global publications, watching presentations or listening to podcasts. Rather than just listening to a lecturer for an hour or more, you’ll come to class ready having read through or listened to the subject material.  Guided by an expert in the field, you will then then find a much more interactive and collaborative environment in which to consolidate and apply the things you have learned.

We are Career-focused

  • Our academics are current industry practitioners
  • Industry contributes to our course development

  • Academic skills support: If you need help with assignment writing, referencing, time management, or any other academic-related aspect of your studies then the Academic Skills Support team can help.
  • Technical support: if you have any questions about your online learning management system
  • We care about your success: we value the importance of a positive student experience, and therefore have robust processes to resolve student complaints.  The Student Complaints Policy, and associated procedures (as well as all policies and procedures), can be access from your student portal.
