Day 3 and 4

3 facials for cancer patients case studies are required to be submitted and marked before certification.

You are required to complete 6 case studies in total. 3 for each post graduate diploma.

Your case studies have to have been diagnosed with cancer in the past, they do not need to be actively in treatment for cancer but it fine to work with those who are.

Full support is given throughout the case study process and we will help you to find case studies in your area if you are unable to find some willing volunteers.


You will be assessed both formally and informally throughout the oncology course. You will complete various workbooks and activities during Day 1 and Day 2.

You are asked to submit your case studies for marking and you will be given an open book exam workbook which is also to be completed, submitted and marked before we can issue our accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in Oncology Lifting and Rejuvenating Facial.

Assessment methods can be adapted to meet the needs of each student. Your tutors are experts and are likely to intuitively adapt their methods to suit your learning preferences. We encourage students to tell us of anything that we can do to help the learning be the best it can be for them prior to course commencement. We are very discreet and all information provided is confidential.


We offer accredited certification upon successful completion of the oncology facials master class. You will receive two separate and distinct certificates. You will have two qualifications.
