Why you should study Medical Aesthetics on the Gold Coast

Why you should study Medical Aesthetics on the Gold Coast

Imagine waking up every day to a golden beach just minutes from your door… a place to exercise, meet friends, or just enjoy your down time, soaking up the waves and the sunshine. On the days you attend student clinics, our White Rooms could be a short tram ride away, and while you study you could gain invaluable real-world experience in a beauty therapy clinic just around the corner from your apartment or sharehouse. Grayclay courses are mostly delivered online, and can be completed from anywhere, with a few blocks of practical training sessions in our clinic rooms. However, if opportunity allows, why not consider an immersive experience on the Gold Coast? There are plenty of compelling reasons to make the move…


When choosing a place to study in Australia, it’s hard to go past all that the Gold Coast has to offer students in both lifestyle and support.  There are of course gorgeous, world-class beaches that make your heart sing. And, there is no need to jog or ride alongside busy roads when there’s an esplanade running beside these beaches, and free outdoor gyms seemingly everywhere you need them.  Delicious food and casual entertainment are covered by the many markets in the area; night markets, food markets and farmers’ markets are on regular rotation and give you an opportunity to explore what the local community has to offer.  Though the Gold Coast is a regional city, it punches well above its weight for nightlife revels and in attracting music gigs and international events, such as the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour. As if all that wasn’t enough, Byron Bay, the Hinterland national parks and Brisbane are a short trip away, each bursting with refreshing and exciting experiences.  On a more serious note, the Gold Coast really values its student population and considers education to be an important part of its economy. With this in mind, The Gold Coast Student Hub provides a free and welcoming study space, as well as support services for accommodation, mental health and finding work. Centrally located at Southport, the Student Hub is just 650m from Grayclay!

Easy transport

With buses, light rail (trams) and ferries operating across the Gold Coast, travel is easy and enjoyable.  Operating all the way from the Helensvale train station at the north end of the Gold Coast to Broadbeach at the south end, the light rail (trams) covers all the essential stops along the way. Furthermore, the nearest light rail station is just 400m from the Grayclay head office building and clinic rooms, right in the heart of the Gold Coast. 

Opportunities to gain real-world experience

Grayclay offers all their Medical Aesthetics students real-world experience in its student clinic rooms. This is a key strength of the Grayclay program and how they deliver exceptional graduates. Their dermal therapists and cosmetic nursing course graduates leave with the confidence of having treated real patients in the student clinics.  Like with any area of study, experience in the field will always round-out your student experience and enhance your future employment prospects. The Gold Coast is an excellent location to gain invaluable work experience in a local clinic.  On the Gold Coast you could live, learn, work and play.
