Student reviews
I remember, with a deep sense of gratitude, studying at ICS school. During the time spent with you, I gained so much knowledge that I was able to open my aesthetic office from scratch. I want to say thank you so much for the knowledge that gave me a head start. Thank you very much, I am glad that I chose your beautician course.
Teresa Bradley
Completed a skincare formulation course on Cosmetics at the ICS centre. The impression was of great enthusiasm. The high professionalism of the teachers, who, in a very accessible form, gave a large amount of both theoretical and practical information. There were no problems at all with employment after graduation. ICS diploma is a visiting card of cosmetology. I want to say "Thank you" to the teaching and administrative staff of the school for the level of knowledge that you give us.

I'm happy that I got here! Top-level skincare training courses. Everything is clear, in accessible words. There is so much practice that in the evening I was like a squeezed lemon But how else, now I really know everything about aesthetic cosmetology! The trainer also explained to us, cosmetologists, in a simple and accessible language, how to promote ourselves and our services on the Internet. It was interesting to listen to her, she answered all questions cheerfully and fervently.
