".I originally chose Casey College of Beauty Therapy because of the location and the fact that there was a payment option available, as well as convenient hours that fitted around my children's school times. What I actually got was a lot more than that. The tutors at the college are outstanding, with all the knowledge, care and attention that you could ever need. The support I received throughout the year, with my changing circumstances, was amazing. The course structure and content was extensive, with the option of furthering my education or amending it at any time."
