After completing my diploma, I returned back to my home country of Spain. Within a matter of weeks, I was able to secure a job at one of Madrid’s most prestigious hotels. The most incredible thing was, the woman who interviewed me knew about the Ray Cochrane Beauty School! I really love my job. As an employee of this hotel, not only to get to meet exciting people but I get incredible perks such as cheap hotel deals all around the world! I really do love my profession.

_Gabrielle Martinez, Spain

I did the level 2 facials course with Ray Cochrane and thoroughly enjoyed the course from enrolment all the way to qualification. The admin team were fantastic and prompt at responding to my queries about the course. My teacher (Pembe) was amazing, she demonstrated professionalism, patience and is very knowledgeable - she has helped me develop confidence when carrying our facial treatments, and I look forward to developing my skills further with level 3 facial electrotherapy. I highly recommend Ray Cochrane Beauty School!
