The Advanced Diploma of Cosmetic Dermal Science … a catalyst for a career change

In our previous Grayclay blog, we looked at one of our newest courses: the Graduate Diploma in Dermal Therapies (52854WA). It is such a great option for people already working in medical aesthetics, health and beauty and who are keen to enhance their qualifications and career prospects. 

 Today we will explore another course — the Advanced Diploma of Cosmetic Dermal Science (52850WA) – available at Grayclay’s study location on the spectacular Gold Coast.  

But first, a couple of questions: 

Do you have a passion for the skin and its relationship to health, beauty and wellbeing?  

Would you love to apply that passion by making a positive and professional difference in people’s lives?  

Have you been working in another area because you were previously unable to pursue your health and beauty dream?
