What Our Students Say
Jessica GoldenbergAACDS Graduate (Diploma of Cosmetic Nursing and Injectables)
I left AACDS with a complete love of skin and lasers. My role working as a cosmetic nurse/therapist lead me to seeing a gap in the beauty and medical aesthetic market for casual staffing support.
Chantal FaureAACDS Graduate (Graduate Diploma of Cosmetic Nursing and Injectables)
I have received an abundant amount of support throughout my period here from all the staff especially during COVID-19. All the lecturers made sure I was travelling well with my studies as well as my wellbeing.
Holly CoppingAACDS Graduate (Advanced Diploma of Cosmetic Dermal Science)
As a Dermal Therapist, I enjoy using my knowledge and expertise that I have learnt with AACDS to change people’s lives and I’m committed to helping Territorians for the rest of my life.
