The Cambridge School of Beauty Therapy is well known in the industry for providing students with first class training. Our school was established in 1983. Since then students from all over the world have trained with us, many of whom now own their own salons in the UK or their country of origin. We are part of a very small but select group of beauty schools which offer accreditations by the international awarding bodies CIDESCO & CIBTAC. Our school is based in Sawston, seven miles south of the city.
At the school, we offer a very good range of beauty therapy courses. Our most popular course is the fast-track CIDESCO & CIBTAC beauty therapy diploma. Students can achieve this diploma in just 10 months. Through this diploma the students will cover:
- Beauty therapy (body & face)
- Indian Head Massage
Students will be able to practice on real clients during our very popular Health Farm days.
The CIDESCO & CIBTAC diploma commence in September each year and fees are payable in instalments throughout the training period.
In addition to the full time option, we also offer a set of part time courses to offer flexibility for those who are already in employment. Besides that we also offer a range of short career development courses which are very popular with existing beauty therapist who would like to update and upgrade their skills.

At the Cambridge School of Beauty Therapy, we strive to keep a very high professional and international standard. All of our tutors are CIDESCO and CIBTAC qualified, and we are privileged enough that all of them have been past students of the Cambridge School of Beauty Therapy. Our team is here to help you understand your options within the beauty industry. Its very easy to get confused when faced with all the training options, levels and career paths. Please feel free to pick up the phone and reach out. We are always here to answer your questions or share our work, study or teaching experiences.
We do love the quote of one of our past CIDESCO alumni. Wendy Horrocks states "The school is so friendly and welcoming and because you are training with a smaller group of people than in many other colleges you receive a high standard of teaching and training and much individualised care and attention."
At our school we also make our best to help you finance your studies. We do understand that finances can be a problem especially when you are at the early stages of your career. Firstly, we always strive to give you the most competitive course fees. Furthermore, we facilitate no-interest installment options to help you spread the load of the course fees.
