The Program aims to provide high quality of knowledge, dexterities and skills in the field and technology of Aesthetics. The infrastructure of the study program has been prepared according to relative study programs abroad, after a research review and in line with the instructions and specifications provided by the Cyprus Agency of Quality Assurance and Accreditation in Higher Education.
The field of Aesthetics is complex and the proper training of the student requires the gathering of knowledge from a wider field of subject areas. The provision of specific and structured knowledge through the program will give to the student the main resources to have the ability to organize independently the operation of an Aesthetics laboratory while at the same time being able to work and safely provide appropriate services in areas related to aesthetics, beauty and wellness.
The 4-year Program of Study provides to the students education at theoretical and practical/laboratory level, based on five core thematic modules (with all subjects being compulsory). These modules are General Structure and Knowledge Enrichment Courses (1st Thematic Module), Courses in the Health-Medical Sector (2nd Thematic Module), Specialty Courses in the Field of Aesthetics (3rd Thematic Module), Cosmetology Courses (4th Thematic Module) and Management and Entrepreneurship Courses (5th Thematic Unit).
The combination of thematic units/courses mentioned above constructs a structured Study Program through where the student will be qualified in both epistemological and practical/laboratory level. The Program also aims to enhance significantly student’s experience through the organized provision of regular practice periods both in aesthetic laboratories and in other professional units active in the field of beauty and wellness.
