Case Studies

Student Success

Navjot (Level 2 NVQ Beauty Therapy)

 Navjot chose beauty therapy because of her great passion for beauty and an ambition to become a professional beauty therapist.

She likes studying at New City College and is very thankful for the opportunity to make new friends and study in a diverse environment.

"The facilities are fantastic. The environment we work in is very comfortable and modern. Lastly the 'earn while you learn' and 'free beauty kit' offer by the college is a bonus." 

 

 

 

Lucie Overton

"I had studied at New City College before and was very comfortable and happy there. I had previously studied cosmetic makeup and eyebrow threading, and couldn’t wait to make a start again.

I threw myself whole heartedly into the studying – I loved every second and, when it came to lessons, I didn’t want them to end! I spent a lot of my spare time at home doing extra studying and trying out new techniques and skills. My tutor realised that I had potential and entered me into a heat of the World Skills UK competition, which I studied like crazy for and eventually went on to win.

I’m currently opening my own nail business; my own sister-in-law has enrolled on the very course that I did. She is hoping to come and work alongside me in the very near future."
