Overseas Students

International School of Beauty offers a range of beauty therapy courses for overseas students.


The Benefits of ISBT Beauty Therapy Courses for Overseas Students

The International School of Beauty Therapy has been in existence for over thirty years teaching all aspects of Beauty Therapy and has a very high reputation in the Beauty Therapy Industry. ISBT is registered with CRICOS, Provider No: 02747G, to deliver nationally accredited beauty therapy courses for Overseas Students who hold a valid Student Visa.

ISBT is a member of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) and the TPS (Tuition protection scheme) which guarantees Overseas Student fees for our beauty therapy courses.

ISBT is situated in the city of Fremantle, a short train ride from the Perth CBD. The harbour city of Fremantle is situated between the Swan River and the Indian Ocean, both only 5 minutes walk from the School. ISBT is found in one of the main streets, just over the road from the famous Fremantle markets.

Fremantle railway station is only 5 minutes walk away, and a free Cat bus will bring you from the station to the top of Norfolk street where the school is found. Alternatively you can just walk to the school along the Cappuccino strip. The city has many boutiques, cafes, pubs and shops and is a colourful and lively place with an al fresco atmosphere. It is also home to Notre Dame University.


Beauty Therapy Course Requirements for Overseas Students

Minimum requirements for Overseas Students are that they be a minimum of 18 years old, have a mark of at least 55% in an accredited English subject, or an IELTS score of 5.5. Prospective students may attend ISBT for assessment of their English language ability. This will include a written and verbal assessment.  For those students who require English language training a list of training establishments is available.


General Information for Overseas Students considering an ISBT Beauty Therapy Course

Prospective Overseas Students must consider the cost of living in Australia when costing the amount of money required to undertake their chosen course. On top of the Course fees and air fares, a Student should make an allowance of at least $AUD2000.00 per month to cover food, rent, power, phone charges, transport and entertainment. This is not an exhaustive list and will depend on the students own lifestyle.
