Perhaps you’ve already done so but if not, have a look at the Connexions website at http://www.connexions-direct.com/jobs4u/ - add ‘beauty therapy’ to the search facility for an overview of this career area (a list of related occupational areas is also included). Select the ‘further details’ link for more information on entry routes, training and qualifications (including degree level study) and opportunities for career progression. You’ll also see contact details for various related organisations and professional bodies – these websites may have additional information of interest.
For degree course details and entry requirements, have a look at: http://ucas.com/students/coursesearch/ You don’t indicate what age you are, but anyone aged 21 or above at the start of a university course (20 or over in Scotland), will be classed as a mature student; as entry requirements may be different for mature students, see http://www.ucas.com/students/maturestudents/ If you have other queries about specific courses, then contact the college or university admissions office directly for clarification.
I hope this information is useful – do allow some time to check out other links. I wish you well with your future study plans.
