I chose beauty therapy as I have always been interested in the hair and beauty industry. Following on from my Level 3 diploma I have been accepted at university to study complimentary therapies full time. The course has helped me to decide that I wanted to carry on studying at a higher level in a similar subject. While on the course I was given career advice and help to pick a higher education course to enrol on. Nashra Sajjad
