Let’s get started!

5 Reasons to tour a Aesthetic Academy before Enrolling 

Exploring the world of beauty aesthetics? Touring a Beauty Aesthetic Academy before enrolling can provide invaluable insights. Here are five compelling reasons why this visit could be your first step towards a successful career in aesthetics.

1) Meet the staff and faculty

Our tutors and staff are the backbone of Ray Cochrane Beauty Aesthetic Academy. Their expertise, experience, and knowledge set us apart as London’s leading beauty and Aesthetic training academy.

There are many benefits to meeting your tutor before enrolling on one of our training courses. Meeting them before starting your course will give you a one-on-one opportunity to learn more about their experience, qualifications, and teaching approach. It will also allow you to establish a connection with them, presenting yourself as a hard-working student, which sets the stage for a fulfilling learning journey. 

Meeting them during your tour will give you a glimpse into our supportive learning environment and reassure you of the quality of education you’ll receive. All of our tutors have over ten years of experience working in their relevant fields, and the majority are still actively working in their chosen industries.

Interacting with working aesthetic professionals will also allow you to gain accurate industry insights to ensure you choose the right profession for yourself. 

2) Get a feel for the environment 

A school tour is very different from an open day as it allows for a more accurate representation of day-to-day movements around the school. On a school tour, you get a true sense of the hustle and bustle, as an open day/evening usually has most normal activities closed to accommodate the program.

During your school tour, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the dynamic atmosphere that sets our training academy apart. It’s more than just stepping through our doors—You’ll feel the buzz of students engaged in learning, instructors sharing their expertise with enthusiasm, and a community that’s all about supporting each other’s growth.

It’s this energy that fuels your journey as a student, making you feel not just comfortable but inspired by the possibilities ahead. After all, when studying, you want to be surrounded by people as passionate about beauty and aesthetics as you are.

3) Explore the facilities and resources

At Ray Cochrane, we firmly believe that seeing is believing, and during your tour, you’ll witness firsthand the investment we’ve made into your education.

We ensure our students learn and practise with equipment used in most luxury clinics and salons worldwide. We’ve found that using modern equipment makes it easier for students to transition directly from learning to working in the beauty/aesthetic industry. It also helps when interviewing for jobs, as you can quickly answer technical questions and promise employers a shorter training time as you’re already familiar with their equipment.

Not only do we invest in the equipment used throughout our school, but we also use high-quality products in our beauty and aesthetics courses.

For example, on our Level 4 Chemical Peel course, we partner with DermaQuest, and our students train with their products. An award-winning, globally recognised brand, DermaQuest was established in 1999 and is so well-loved that many popular clinics use their products throughout the UK.

But again, you can take our word for it or book a tour and find out for yourself! 

4) Interact with current students

Interacting with current students during your tour is more than just a casual conversation—it’s an invaluable opportunity to gain fundamental insights into life at our academy and how it can shape your own journey. Picture chatting with students once in your shoes, sharing their experiences, successes, and even the occasional challenge they’ve overcome. Their firsthand experience gives you an understanding of what your time at our beauty aesthetic academy could look like, beyond what a website or leaflet can communicate.

Meeting current students helps potential students understand the journey, the highs, the lows, and everything in between. By engaging with current students, you’ll gain valuable insights into the realities of balancing academics, practical training, and personal commitments.

You’ll learn about the resources, support systems, and opportunities available to help you thrive academically and professionally. And perhaps most importantly, you’ll discover a sense of community—a network of peers who are classmates, collaborators, and motivators.

You can also find motivation for your beauty/aesthetic career by reading some of our past students’ outstanding achievements on our student spotlight page

5) Understand the support services available

At our beauty aesthetic training academy, your journey towards success is our utmost priority. We understand that embarking on a new career path can be exciting yet daunting, so we’re committed to providing you with the support you need to thrive academically, professionally, and personally.

One of our course enrolment advisors will conduct your school tour. During your tour, we’ll walk you through each of our support services in detail, ensuring that you clearly understand how they can benefit and empower you throughout your journey at our academy.

Ray Cochrane Beauty Aesthetics Academy provides the following support services to students and graduates:

  • CV services — Our student support staff have extensive experience in the beauty/aesthetic industry, with most having worked in the industry themselves. So, who is better than an experienced professional who knows the industry standards to help edit and proofread your CV?
  • Student support — When you start your course and have issues, our student support staff will be your first point of contact. Maybe you get overwhelmed with your coursework or are having personal problems impacting your attendance, our outstanding student support staff will be here for you.
  • Private job board — As you can imagine, being a leading beauty aesthetic training provider, many employers come directly to us with job openings as they know our students are amongst the best and trained to the highest standards. Our students and graduates get automatically added to a private group where we post jobs you won’t find on any other job boards! Whether you’re looking for a job as a beauty therapist, laser technician or microblading artist, we’ll have something there for you.
