The Terms and Conditions set out below form a contract between the student and The Norwich School of Beauty.
- Students agree to disclose any health or medical condition at time of enrolment, which will be dealt with in strictest confidence.
- Students must notify the school of any changes to health or contact details during their course.
- Students agree that the email address provided to the school will be the primary contact method for all written communications.
- Students agree to have their photo taken during classes for use in marketing materials by the school.
- Students agree to abide by the school’s Code of Ethics, Conduct and Practice. This is designed to encourage integrity and responsibility whilst studying at the school, and to ensure students leaving the school uphold and further the standard of professional therapists and the school. This Code may form the basis for discussion in the event of a complaint against a student or staff. The school will provide a copy of the Code upon request.
Fees & Charges
- All course fees including deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. All course fees, including any additional costs, must be paid in line with the payment schedule on the invoice emailed to you, and in full 2 weeks before the end of the course. If a student has a problem with their payment schedule they must let the school know in advance.
- A £10 late fee will be charged for any late payments per month. If a payment is not made before the next class as per the payment schedule the student will not be able to attend the class.
- Students must attend all scheduled sessions. Pre-arranged time off must be agreed in advance with the Principal. Where any classes are missed a catch-up lesson with the tutor must be arranged at a cost of £25 per hour, payable by the student. If possible for students to attend an alternative scheduled lesson to catch up on missed training this will cost £15 payable by the student.
- Students agree to pay £25 for the cost of a replacement course textbook, and £30 for the cost of a replacement course folder, if lost or damaged.
- Should a student fail to attend or complete a confirmed course for any reason, other than the unlikely event that the course is cancelled by the school, no refund of paid fees will be made, and any outstanding course fees must still be paid by the student.
Attendance & Uniform
- Students with less than 80% attendance may not be included in exams and may be asked to leave the course. This decision is at the final discretion of the Principal.
- Students must be punctual and arrive 5-10 minutes early for all scheduled sessions.

- Students must ensure they are able to give and receive treatments as part of their practical training. The only exception to this is Individual Eyelash Extensions.
- Students must arrange for models to attend practical training sessions at the school where required in the scheme of work. Failure to provide a model will mean the student is unable to participate in the class.
