    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are the benefits of having the Level 7 qualification?
    • The Level 7 qualification benefits you as a practitioner in many ways:
    • Establishes you in a competitive industry
    • Ensures you have the needed knowledge, confidence and competence to launch and sustain a successful and lucrative aesthetics business
    • Imparts experience needed in managing medical aesthetic emergencies
    • Significantly increases your employment prospects
    • Future-proofs your aesthetic practice by ensuring you understand and are compliant with the industry’s latest regulatory guidelines and principles
    • Demonstrates to your existing and potential clients that you are ethical, safe and dedicated to self advancement and therefore trustworthy.
    Is the Level 7 Diploma the same as the Level 7 Certificate?

    Not it is not.

    The Level 7 qualification is one which is on the same level as a master’s degree and recognised all over the world. It is a qualification higher than the certificate and having more credits however, it is not a full Masters degree.

    The certificate gives you a firm grounding in the core areas of medical aesthetics. The diploma offers a greater depth of learning across a wider range of areas that are important in medical aesthetic practice.

    Can I enrol at any time?

    Yes you can, because the course does not adhere to the conventional academic calendar but is rather crafted in a flexible way that accommodates different work schedules.  Also, most of the coursework can be accessed remotely and is self-paced.

    For the practical courses, it is entirely up to you to book any dates and locations you find most convenient.

    How long would it take to complete the diploma?

    As the learning is majorly self-paced, the duration of the entire qualification is flexible but can take any time from 9 – 24 months.

    The online learning materials and coursework is completed at your own convenience. The practical training is undertaken on full training days and you can choose mentoring sessions based on suitable dates and locations.

    Am I eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?

    The eligibility for RPL is practitioner – based. Practitioners who can demonstrate sufficient experience with evidence of previous cases as well as provision of evidence of previous relevant CPD and aesthetic training will be considered.

    They may only then need to show their theoretical understanding by completing a few written assignments, this allowing them save a considerable amount of time and money.

    Is it possible to complete the qualification remotely or do I have to attend training days in person?

    Practitioners who have prior experience may be able to complete the whole course remotely via our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway. Otherwise, while most of the coursework is accessible remotely, it is necessary to attend practical training days.

    How much does it cost to obtain the qualification?

    This is dependent upon which package you select as well as your prior experience.

    What are my options for payment?

    Our payment plans are completely flexible, allowing you to make up to 10 interest-free monthly instalments. You can also pay in full or on a stage-by-stage basis. Please get in touch with us for further details.

    How is the mentoring carried out?

    Our mentoring involves morning sessions on weekends. You would need to evidence 40 botox and dermal filler procedures in your portfolio in the course of these sessions. 

    Do I need to wait until my certification or can I begin practicing instantly?

    Upon completion of your Foundation training day, you are able to begin practicing immediately, having obtained indemnity insurance.

    However, you can only practice the procedures which you have received training and competency for.

    Our level 7 diploma qualification is open to the following medical professionals:

    • Doctors
    • Dentists
    • Nurses
