GTI Galway - Beauty course - Fees

Hi, I've just been accepted to GTI to do a beauty course, its not the two-year one. Its a one year course. I had to pay €255 fee today and just wondering will I need to pay more fees? or if anyone has done this course, Do I have to buy a kit/uniform? The course i'm doing is Certificate in Beauty Therapy, its more like a beautician receptionist course, I think :/ Appreciate any help.

Well done on getting accepted, I had to pay a once off fee last year for my course at GTI but I know some of the other classes such as hairdressing, etc have to pay for equipment and the like. So assuming you'll need equipment you will have to pay for it.

When did you have your interview if you don't mind me asking?, i'm still waiting to hear back from them on a different course

Thank you, I was just wondering was there more fees I have to pay nearer to when I start for exams or anything. I had my interview May 28th I think and I got my letter of acceptance on June 21st.

I hope you hear back from them soon!

Hey Darerca, I applied for the make-up artistry as my 3rd choice, I think there is more interviews in August. You should ring them and ask about it.

Second round interviews are more than likely only offered to people who are successful in the first round for a limited number of places. I hope for your sake you read through your application form before submitting it if this post is anything to go by. How about writing properly and not in text speak and also considering a spell check? Surely this is something someone seeking to get into further studies and a year from being potentially qualified should be prioritising.

Hi, no I haven't heard anything about registration day or anything, I was actually getting a bit worried. Have your friends that done the course said if its a good course or if its tough or anything? I only noticed after I was accepted that its more of a business studies course?

Yeah in the first year its very like recieptionist/front of office and do nails aswell,If you go on for the 2nd year you get to do more of the beauty side of things.
They got on fine,they said they never had any problems and they both did the 2 years,1 of the girls is working on a cruise ship doing beauty and 1 is working in a salon now.

Yeah I think i'm gonna call down to them about it,getting a bit worried now myself because its so near .

Oh no, I'm actually on holidays that day. Going away on the 3rd. Will have to ring them now to try sort something. I think I will need to put more than €200 away, Just looking at houses online now, Very expensive in Galway! Oh well, still looking forward to getting started
