The Professional Massage Diploma course is designed for students with no prior experience in massage.
Before you make up your mind you can:
- Join our popular ᾿Massage Taster Day’ - we will refund the fee if you later enrol on the Massage Diploma Course.
- Observe a diploma class in progress during one of our open days
- Attend one of our clinic days and receive a massage from one of our students.
- Arrange an advisory meeting with one of our tutors.
It's very common for our students to be in this position, and our courses are designed to offer you a very gentle landing in the world of study.
Most students find that between 5-10 hours a week is sufficient to get a good result. Half of this involves practicing massage with the course DVDs and half is theory, using class notes and the Virtual Campus website.
Massage therapy is a growing profession. Many therapists open their own practice while others work in health clubs, hotels and many other areas. Some use their training to supplement their existing income through additional part-time work. Many choose to progress to specialist complementary therapy qualifications such as sports or infant massage.
That depends on you. The massage diploma course gives you the opportunity to start working immediately after graduation. Working for yourself will take a little time to set up. But you will have the benefit of the business knowledge you have gained during the course.
Some people pay for the Diploma course in one lump sum while others pay by instalments. You’ll find the information you need about payment once starting the enrolment process.
As long as you attend the classes and complete your homework we are confident that you will do well in the exams. We take our responsibility to deliver your qualification very seriously, and in the unlikely event of your failing, you can sit the course again at no extra cost!
