Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long do I have to complete the course?

The courses are designed to be self-paced. For the Certificate Course, you would expect to be dedicating on average about 6-8 hours per week for 24 weeks. For the Diploma Course, you would expect to dedicate, as per AQF standards, approximately 16 hours per week of structured and non-structured training over an 18 month period. Students studying the Certificate Course are provided up to 12 months to complete their studies. Students studying the Diploma Course are provided up to 18 months to complete their studies.

How do I communicate with my tutor?

You can contact your tutor at any time through our secure student site, which you will gain access to once you enrol. Your tutor's role is to assess your assignments and provide you with feedback. They are also available to answer any questions you may have about the course.

Do I have to attend any classes?

The courses are completed online. This means there are no classes to attend. You can study in your own time and at your own pace.

Do I have to have a background in Makeup Artistry?

No. The courses are designed to allow for students who have had little or no experience in Makeup Artistry.

What equipment do I need?

All you need for our courses is a computer with access to the internet, a video camera (a smartphone camera is acceptable), and a makeup kit. As a student of The Institute of Makeup Artistry, you will receive exclusive discounts to leading makeup suppliers.

To see a list of additional equipment that is required to complete the entire Diploma course, please click here and view the EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS section or simply contact our team for more information. Our courses are compatible with both PC and Mac computers, tablet and smartphone devices.

When can I start?

As the courses are provided online, you have the flexibility to start when and where it suits you. If you enrolled today, for example, you could start right away.

Do I need a model?

Models are required for the completion of the course assignments. Models can be anyone over the age of 10! We recommend having 2 male and 2 female models on standby throughout the course. Students are advised to allow sufficient time to organise a model/s for each assignment.

What if I need more time?

If you need more time, you can purchase one of our affordable extensions. We currently offer 3, 6 and 12 month extensions.

Will I be able to chat with other students?

Yes. We have a dedicated student Facebook group. This group allows you to connect with other like-minded makeup artists where you can discuss your assignments, the course, and anything about makeup.

Do you mail any course notes or materials out?

Our courses are delivered online, and all information is provided digitally. As soon as you enrol, you will gain access to our online student site. You can download the course materials as you proceed through each module. As the modules are provided in PDF format, you can keep them for future reference and print if you wish. The only time we mail something out is when you successfully graduate our course.

What device is required?

Our course is compatible with both PC and Mac devices, and there are no specific software requirements.

Are credit transfers available?

Yes. We offer a credit transfer to any applicant who provides suitable evidence that they have successfully completed a unit of competency at any Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Can I apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) after completing the Certificate course?

We have developed a bespoke RPL that is only available to students who have enrolled in our Certificate Course and have completed all 12 Certificate assignments. By completing this RPL process, a student will upgrade their qualifications and receive the Diploma certification.

What does the RPL course consist of?

The RPL course consists of 1 module, and has been broken down into 12 assignment tasks that are designed to gradually build and expand on the knowledge our students have gained in the Certificate course.

How long do I have to complete the RPL course?

Students have 12 months to complete our Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) course.
