The Blended CUA51020 Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Make-up Services) course allows students to undertake a HUXLEY course even if they are unable to attend full-time or part-time studies on campus. Units offered in the blended program are designed to enable students to attain a nationally recognised accreditation as a professional makeup artist. This mode of study is flexible and affordable!

Professional Hair Styling Course

The HUXLEY Professional Hair Styling Course covers everything from basic styling disciplines to advanced hairstyling techniques. With the guidance of the HUXLEY expert trainers, students discover all the tricks of the trade, making them extremely useful on set and ultimately more employable.

Progressive Makeup Artistry | International Students

This course is designed with the same framework as our CUA51020 Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Make-up Services). However, it is broken into two courses, FBMUAC and SPFXC, that enables international students to access the course on non-student VISA types; for an example, applicants on working or tourist VISAs.
