How it works

Through our experience, we have learned that a multi-stage foundation experience is the best start to your career.

Step 1

eLearning

We want your time with our expert trainers to be spent on practical skills and exploring your questions. That is why we provide you with interactive eLearning prior to your training, created by our specialist learning team to teach you the theory you need to know in the most painless way possible.

Modules Included:

/ Skin Comes First / Regulations and Guidelines /
Facial Anatomy / Injection Technique / Case Studies / Your Foundation Programme

Step 2

Foundation Day

This 7-hour day is led by experienced Aesthetics doctors and includes case studies, live demonstrations of injection techniques on patients, simulated practical experience on professional silicone mannequins and detailed instruction on how to manage complications and practice safely.

On completion of the day, you will receive your Foundation Certificate. You will also receive a FREE starter pack containing all the consumables you need to treat your first patients, and our ‘Good Practice Guide’, which answers all your tricky questions regarding prescribing, insurance and data protection.

The Starter Pack includes:

/ Syringes / Needles / Latex Gloves / Sterile Procedure Gloves / Hydrex Spray / Swabs / Spirigel Pump / Skin maker pencil

Step 3

Optional One-to-One Session

As part of the Foundation Programme, you will receive a redeemable token for one of our innovative 1:1 sessions with an expert mentor. After your Foundation Day, you can book one of the following 1:1s:

/ Mid Face (cheekbone treatment)

/ Lips

/ Upper face BOTOX®

You will be guided through consultation and treatment of your patient, and advised on how to carry out your follow-up. This provides you with the safest experience for your patient and gives you the support you need for your first in-clinic experience.

We require you to bring your own patient for treatment because it is essential that you review your patient after two weeks to benefit fully from the learning experience. We provide full guidance in selecting your patient. The first treatment is included in the price and your patient pays a fee of £150 per additional treatment administered if requested.

FAQs

Our Foundation Day, Level 7 and Cosmetic Dermatology courses assume a certain level of prior medical knowledge. As such, they are not suitable for non-medical practitioners.

Harley Academy graduates can expect to go straight into private practice or top roles in aesthetics clinics, and must ensure patients can rely on their capacity for clinical oversight and safe management of potential complications, as well as the skills learnt on our courses.

The degrees we accept for students are:

  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Midwifery
  • Dentistry
  •  

Along with a valid registration number with the appropriate body, e.g. GMC, NMC, GDC.

If you are from another background and wish to go into aesthetic medicine, we recommend taking an appropriate undergraduate degree, such as nursing, to future-proof your career and ensure that you can continue to find appropriate cosmetic medical insurance.

If you’re unsure whether or not you are eligible to enrol for a Harley Academy course, please note you must satisfy all of these entry criteria:

Already be a qualified doctor, nurse, midwife or dentist,

  1. Have a valid registration number with the appropriate regulatory body for your profession (either in the UK, or in your home country),
  2. Have fluent English – either as your first language, or passed an IELTS exam in the last two years and scored above 7 in each section.

 

Yes – these professional groups can practice Aesthetic Medicine, however, they require a prescriber to provide oversight for injectables.

If you are an independent nurse/midwife prescriber, you are free to work as an independent cosmetic practitioner.

We expect the course to take an average of 12-18 months, depending on how much time you can dedicate to it. There is no minimum duration (except for mentoring and exam date availability) and you have up to three years in total to complete the course, from enrolment to assessment.

The Level 7 certificate is a professional qualification focused on applicable clinical knowledge and practical skills, whereas university courses are generally designed to give you academic research skills. Both university courses and accredited Level 7 courses like ours will ensure you meet the Health Education England qualification requirements.

Read our Guide to Training in Aesthetics for a thorough comparison of Level 7 qualifications, university courses and weekend courses.

 – We are recognised as the industry standard

 – We offer more hands-on training than any other provider

 – We build successful careers

Yes, there is no obligation to continue onto the Level 7 course after attending a Foundation Day. However, if you do your Foundation Day with us, you will receive a significant discount off the cost of your Level 7 certification if you do decide to upgrade.

Feel free to come along to learn the procedures and get a sense of the industry, and then decide.

No, although you may if you like. If you choose not to, you will receive an £895 discount off the cost of your Level 7 course.

We recommend taking the Foundation Day included in our Level 7 course. It provides an excellent ‘refresher’ to prepare you for exams, as well as introducing your peers starting the qualification with you.

Through our Recognition of Prior Learning Policy, we can make special allowances for practitioners with over three years of experience. If you pass our assessment and submit a portfolio, then there are no other constraints on achieving our L7Cert.

Our team comes from a diverse background of doctors, dentists and nurses who have all specialised in Aesthetics and completed their Level 7 certification. Check out our team of trainers.

The Cosmetic Dermatology programme offers an invaluable training experience in Microneedling, Chemical Peels and Injectables in Skin Rejuvenation that will enable you to provide a wider range of treatment options for your clients, adding significant value to your practice when combined with your Level 7 certification.
