Frequently Asked Questions


I haven’t done any massage before, is this course right for me?
The Professional Massage Diploma course is designed for students with no prior experience in massage.

How can I ensure that this course is for me?
Before you make up your mind you can:
– Join our popular ᾿Introduction to Massage Taster Day’ – we will refund the fee if you later enrol on to the Massage Diploma Course.
– Observe a real diploma class in progress during one of our open class
– Attend one of our clinic days and receive a massage from one of our students.
– Arrange an advisory meeting with one of our tutors.
– If English is not your first language, take our English assessment

It’s many years since I’ve done any studying. Will I be OK?
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. If you are still worry, arrange an advisory meeting with one of our tutors.

How much time each week would I need to study at home?
Most students find that between 5-10 hours a week is sufficient to get a good result. Half of this involves practising massage with the help of our course videos and half is the theory, using class notes and the Virtual Campus website.

What can I expect in terms of work once I have qualified?
Bodyology helps newly graduates to find their first job. 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.

Once qualified, how quickly can I start working?
You can 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.

How can I pay for the Diploma 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.

What if I fail the course?
As long as you attend the classes and complete your homework we are confident that you will pass 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!
