About us

The International School of Beauty Therapy has been established in Western Australia for 38 years and and is a leading provider of make-up artist courses and other beautician courses in Perth. The International School of Beauty Therapy is accredited with ASQA.  The school courses are approved by Centrelink for Austudy. The school is also accredited by the International examining boards CIDESCO (Zurich), CIBTAC (UK) and ITEC (UK). They are the 3 major International examining bodies associated with health and beauty therapies. The school is also a member of CIDESCO Schools Australia and ACPET (Australian Council for Private Education and Training).

Situated in the city of Fremantle, the school is close to both the Swan River and the Indian Ocean and just a short train ride from Perth. The light and airy premises have been custom built for training Beauty Therapy and are situated on Norfolk Street close to the famous Fremantle Markets. The school is just 5 minutes walk from the railway station, along Fremantle’s Cafe Strip, and an 5 minute walk  to the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, arguably the most popular destination for ‘Fish and Chips’ in Perth.The shops, boutiques and cafes are a popular lunchtime destination for the students.

The International School is equipped with modern teaching aids and equipment that the trainee therapist would expect to find in a salon or day spa, thus ensuring up to date training in Beauty Therapy in all of our beautician courses.

Our beautician course facilities include two large practical rooms, one equipped for facial therapy and one for body therapy. In these rooms the students work on each other, family,  friends and salon clients, performing a multitude of treatments, facials, hydradermie, make-up, waxing, lash extensions, microdermabrasion, aromatherapy, body wraps, spa treatments, reflexology, body massage and many  more.  Theory classes are also part of the training as the background knowledge is vital to ensure the students are both knowledgeable and can work safely and these classes are conducted in the theory room.

A number of our beautician courses, such as our Certificate II in retail services and make-up course also provide training to prepare students to work in a retail environment.Students are provided with training manuals as part of their course fee, but they also have access to many books to aid their studies. A student kitchen/coffee room are also available . A complete list of our full and part time beautician courses can be found here. You may also be interested in one of our short beautician courses.

The teaching staff for all of our make-up artist courses and other beautician courses have obtained their Diploma of Beauty Therapy plus International qualifications, and have a minimum of three years practical experience of working in the beauty industry. Their experience ranges from being a cruise ship beauty therapist, working in the UK,  a spa manager, to working in a salon, whilst both the principal and head tutor are International examiners for the CIDESCO examining board. Together they bring a wealth of experience to the students.
