You will normally hold a minimum of five GCSEs, one of which should preferably be in English and one in Science. Mature students are selected on their suitability to take the course, but should be at least Level 2 English. Applicants without any formal qualifications will take an English Level 2 initial assessment at interview.
Practice as a massage therapist or a wide range of courses in the area of holistic therapies, health and fitness, for example, reflexology or sports massage.
Students are recommended to take out student insurance (approximately £35), which covers students for practical practice outside college for case studies. Tutor will advise at the beginning of the course.
