Ana Turvey
Diploma of Beauty Therapy Graduate

I graduated Demi International with my diploma of beauty therapy in April this year. I have been working in a salon ever since and am loving my career so far. Going to Demi International was the best decision I could have made for my education. The teachers were extremely knowledgeable and there was also lots of hands on experience. They taught me everything I needed to know to prepare me for the real world. Ann the principal gave me endless opportunities and helped set me up for a career in a highly sought after salon where I am furthering my education and look forward to continually developing my skills. There is no better choice for quality education and a friendly atmosphere than Demi International.

Selina McGaffin
Graduated Diploma in Beauty Therapy

I really loved my time at Demi International, Ann and the Teachers were just amazing and professional. It had been well over 20 years since I last studied and the class’s and materials where just so easy to understand and the quality was just outstanding. Since qualifying from Demi International I have worked in some Fantastic well-known Spa’s including RACV and Endota Spa. Thanks to Ann and the Teachers at Demi International you are just all AMAZING, I would not be where I am today without all you.

Tahlia Kirk
Diploma of Screen and Media

Demi International Beauty Academy is a great school to study make up and beauty services. The Diploma of Screen and Media is a great course as you learn so many interesting make up facts and learn how to perfect your make up whether it be glamour make up or special effects. It is also great that they get guest speakers come into the class to show you products or how to create make up looks. The teachers are wonderful and are always there to help you along the way. Over the past year at school I have made some friends that I hope to have for life. I would recommend Demi International to anyone willing to start their career in freelance make up or special effects.

Ashleigh Smith
Diploma of Screen and Media (Toowoomba)

Michelle, I want to say thank you for being a great teacher/mentor/friend to me this year. I am grateful for all your hard work in helping me grow in many ways. You have been a great source of inspiration, motivation and guidance. I will miss our Tuesday classes at Demi! I wish you endless happiness and love.

Thank you xx

Bella Rose
Makeup Artistry

Studying at Demi International Beauty Academy was one of the best things I ever did for myself. I obtained a Diploma in Screen and Media in 2018 alongside some brilliant students and an amazing, informative and friendly teacher. Within 3 months I was already getting paid as a Makeup Artist working for myself and after 4 months I was hired as a HMUA for an award winning photographic studio. Two weeks after competing my diploma I was selected as the Makeup Director for Aura Makeup Australia and will be taking charge of the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival. I am thrilled with my outcome and I owe it all to Demi International!

Melissa Christie
Diploma in Screen and Media (Makeup)
I recently completed my Diploma in Screen and Media (Makeup) at Demi International on the Sunshine Coast Campus in Maroochydore. This 12 month course has improved my skills so much. It wasn’t until I looked back of photos of my previous work and compared them to the end of the course to realise just how far I have come. Our teacher Stacey was so knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and patient. The course covers every aspect of the makeup industry preparing you for the work force after course completion allowing you to decide on the direction you wish to take your makeup career. Since completing my diploma I have taken part in some amazing fashion shows such as Sunshine Coast Fashion week and also started my own successful freelance business catering to weddings and events. Without my new learned skills and confidence none of this would have been possible. I am so happy I chose to do this course; I’ve come out of it with so many news skills and also lots of new and supportive friendships. If you are looking at Studying makeup on the Sunshine Coast, look no further than Demi International!
Morgan Harris
Remedial Massage Therapist

I have always wanted a career in sports medicine I just didn’t know where to start. Demi International helped me to get my foot in the door, by enrolling in the Certificate of Massage therapy that they offer. After falling in love with the concept I progressed and continued on to do the Diploma of Remedial Massage through Demi also. My teacher Seonaid Boyle was encouraging, supportive and always positive throughout my entire journey. I am certain I wouldn’t have found something I love to do as much as Remedial Massage without her help and the Directors of Demi International. If you are wanting to do something fun, active and rewarding I absolutely recommend this course, you will not be disappointed.

Clare Hardy
Cert II Makeup

I decided to complete a Cert II in Makeup mainly for self-interest. I am so glad I chose to study at Demi International as there was such a wide variety of areas in makeup that the classes covered. Bambi was great and pushed me to try new things and go outside of my comfort zone, which produced great results. Our classes were great; varied and always interesting.

Rachel Boan
Cert II Makeup

I was so excited to combine my love of art with making people feel beautiful. Demi International provided a wonderful learning experience in an awesome salon vibe. After completing the Cert II I have enjoyed it so much that I have decided to continue on with Demi International and complete the Diploma of Specialist Makeup. Thanks Bambi ?

Sarah Crain

From the very first moment that I walked into the academy I knew I had made the right choice choosing Demi International! I look forward to my classes every week and have learnt so many interesting life long skills. I feel extremely lucky to have Belinda as my teacher, she is both supportive and extremely informative and has an outstanding knowledge of the Beauty Industry and the components in the course. The school has amazing facilities and great range if products, friendly staff and I have made life long friends. Overall it is an experience I will cherish forever.

Lauren McLellan
Student Diploma of Specialist Makeup

From the very first day I started at Demi International, studying my Diploma of Specialised Makeup, my lovely lecturer Marcelle Ibberson, warmly welcomed my class and I to the academy and to the course that we were about to undertake for the next 6 months. This incredible lady is without a doubt the most professional and wonderful lecturer and makeup artist that I have ever met. Marcelle is so unbelievably talented with her makeup and teaching skills, and provided me with the most useful tips and techniques that I can use for the rest of my future endeavours within the makeup industry. For anyone who is currently thinking of studying this Diploma with Marcelle, you will definitely have the time of your life, with such a dedicated and inspirational trainer. Whether it was a simple ‘Day Makeup’ or an intense SPFX ‘Zombie’ look, Marcelle knew every tip and trick about how to apply different materials and products for our looks. You don’t often find such professionalism and gifted traits in a lecturer, however, Marcelle is one of a kind and you will be more than thankful and honoured to have her by your side teaching you the best skills a professional makeup artist can have. Whether we were doing theory work or practical work, Marcelle always made our class environment a fun workplace. It was always just so exciting to walk through the doors to a bright happy face every morning, to someone who was so excited and keen to teach us all new things everyday, and I know that we will always value those skills forever. I was also lucky enough to also make many bonds with my peers within the class and became one big family. It was remarkable to see how fast one class and their lecturer can bond within just 6 months. It was certainly a bond that will never be forgotten and cherished forever.

Alysha-Bree Beverly
Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

Thanks to my teacher Sharon at Demi International I have come out of my course with a full time job, a new confidence and love for what I do – It was an amazing experience with very hands on training and a great atmosphere with everyone at the school. I highly recommend Demi International.

Emma McKenzie
Student Diploma of Specialist Makeup

Studying a Diploma of specialised makeup services under the watchful eye of Marcelle Ibberson was not only a joy but a wonderfully creative process. Exploring an extensive history of makeup and the science behind perfection was both challenging and incredibly rewarding. Working in a mature, professional environment gave a great sense of the responsibility and nature of the busy beauty industry. Within such a short period of time we learnt not only skills of makeup but made like-minded friends to last a lifetime.

Chloe Macionis
Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

I’ve had so much fun this past year, I’ve loved every minute of it! I’m so glad I finally took the steps to pursue my desire to work in the Beauty Industry and so pleased I chose Demi International Beauty Academy to gain my Diploma. The support and guidance I received from my teacher has been excellent. The friendly atmosphere, helpful staff, knowledge of the teachers and “hands on” experience has given me the confidence to get a job. I would never have guessed I would be working in the industry as quickly as I am and I honestly owe that to my teacher and Demi International. I can’t thank you enough and am going to miss coming each week ?

Louise O’Neill
Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

It took me a long time to take the leap of faith needed to study a Diploma of Beauty Therapy. I am so happy I decided to undertake this course at Demi International Beauty Academy. The classrooms provide a great range of products and equipment and the trainers are professionals who posses an abundance of knowledge that is second to none. Not only will I leave here with amazing qualifications, but also life long friends.

Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

I was accepted at Demi International in February 2011 as a Part Time student one day a week while I was still at school. I did not feel quite ready to graduate when the time come and I was encouraged and welcomed to continue my studies full time at no additional cost to my family to enhance my skills until I was 100% confident. Now as I am about to graduate with a full time job I feel as though I have reached my full potential and I am leaving Demi International with a great understanding of the beauty industry and much more knowledge than I walked in with. Not only has this Academy introduced me to the beauty world, it has introduced me to some great people and friendships I will have for a lifetime. It is a great working environment and opens up many doors for future success. Its an experience I would recommend for everyone with an interest of pursuing a career with the beauty industry.

Student Cert II in Nail Technology

Demi International has been a great experience. Ann was great to deal through. I was working interstate FIFO and Ann was more than happy for me to do the theory side as distance education. Once every three weeks I was able to come in for practical days and exams as living and working away was tough to get in. Ann helped out with finding accommodation that was suitable for me and we were able to negotiate time of classes to fit in with my flights. RPL on some components was easy and Ann was very negotiable through the entire course. The teacher was great, really got us in there and was very flexible with models. Overall it was a great experience an I would recommend Demi International to anyone looking into beauty. I’m so thankful.

Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

I have enjoyed my time at Demi International. I started my diploma at another school on the Sunshine Coast and felt as if I was going around in circles and not learning anything. I made the decision to move to Demi International mid way through the year to finish my diploma and it was the best decision I made for myself. I would recommend anyone of any age to study with Demi International.

Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Ann and Bec at Demi international for all their support during the past year. As I work full-time and get very limited days off, i did the beauty therapy diploma through correspondence and the girls were incredibly flexible with my hours, my school work and everything in between. They even came in on their days off to teach me practical work and theory! I also got a job doing mobile services within 6 months of starting my diploma! The school has an awesome atmosphere, great facilities and great teachers. I wish you all the very best for the future and I recommend this school to anyone!

Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

Demi International is a great beauty school where I have learnt so much. It has been the best experience to complete my Diploma of Beauty Therapy with Demi International Beauty Academy. I recommend this school to anyone that is interested in beauty. I started my Diploma in February 2012, completed it December 2012 and had a great job in a beautiful Spa on the Sunshine coast before I was even graduated. So happy I chose Demi International.

Student Diploma of Beauty Therapy

My time at Demi international was such a great year doing my diploma.
The atmosphere was very positive with Ann and Rebecca doing everything too help us succeed and become the best therapist we could be. During my time at Demi international my confidence with everything has improved heaps over my time there, with getting a job out of work experience 3 months before I graduated. I definitely recommend Demi international to anyone seeking a career in the beauty industry.

Parent of a Diploma in Beauty Therapy Student

I would just like to take this opportunity say a big thank you to you and you staff for all the time and effort you put into your students. I have to say that we are completely happy, satisfied and more that ‘Demi’ seems to be so much more than it was before you took charge based on Nathalia’s attitude, comments, work, & practices. My Husband & I are so glad she has been able to complete this course with you and we would definitely recommend your academy to whoever wants to know

Student Short Course in Waxing

Just a quick note to say thank you to you and Rebecca. I had such fun at the wax training course and can’t wait to learn more (particularly eye lash extensions and spray tanning) and practice heaps. I am excited to build my brand and get more experience over the rest of the year (I want to be perfect) and hopefully open up shop early next year – in time for summer.

Student Acrylic Nail Technology & Gel Nail Application

Having an amazing time in the course. Julie is a great teacher and Kim and i get along really well.

Student Acrylic Nail Technology & Gel Nail Application

Thanks again for offering such a great course! Julie was just the best and I’m looking forward to doing lashes sometime in the near future!

Student Short course in Waxing

I just wanted to say thanks for organising the waxing course. Rebekah was a fabulous tutor and I loved the whole experience. I’m trying to cancel my five week brazilian course held at the TAFE in favour of your short course in intimate waxing. I understand you just run these when you can and there isn’t a mad rush for me to do it…but I would like to complete this training with you in one day if possible!

Cass, Tenterfield NSW
Makeup Artistry Student

I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I have now started to fulfill my biggest dream! I have had, THE MOST AMAZING 2 weeks of my life! The experience was scary and very intimidating when I first arrived. But once I was off.. It was fantastic! I enjoyed every minute!! So thank you for everything and for helping me reach for the stars! I will definitely recommend Demi International to anyone and everyone. I will definitely be back for more. Thank you Demi International, Ann & Roz. For allowing me to pick ur brains, learn everything I could, experiment on you and for just sharing your resources and knowledge with me.

Demi International is the No.1 Beauty Choice if you wish to gain your Beauty Therapy Diploma. Once you have started studying there you will never want to leave as the atmosphere is so positive and supportive it is second to none. Don’t go anywhere else, you will only be disappointed.

I started 2013 on a new slate, new town, new friends, new job and the chance to gain a new qualification. Out of everything I’ve gained thsi year, my Demi International experience was the most rewarding. I made new friends and managed to score my dream job. The skills I’ve gained from Demi International I will have with me forever. I have great appreciation for the way we were taught at Demi International. The teachers are caring and genuinely happy to take the time out for any assistance needed at all. I will always be happy I made the decision to come to Demi and will be forever grateful for the doors it has opened.

Dip. Beauty Therapy Student

I have recently just completed my diploma of beauty therapy at Demi International. My experience at Demi International was so rewarding, I learnt so much and gained a lot, my time there was incredible; I made a lot of friends and got to interact with so many different people. Demi prepared me for the big beauty world and made me a more mature, confident person. Demi International is a place where I could be myself and do what I love and learn about it at the same time. The staff at Demi are so welcoming, friendly and bubbly and that’s what makes the Academy! I have enjoyed my time at Demi a lot, time flies when you are enjoying yourself. Demi International not only gave me my qualifications but my dream job at Shine Beauty. I cannot thank everyone at Demi enough for everything they have done to help me to achieve my goals.

Liam Larkins
I work closely with Ann and it is always a pleasure to speak to her. She is on the ball when it comes to the administrative side of her business. Her staff are always friendly to speak to! Highly recommend 🙂
Mark Durkin

Ann and the team at Demi International do a fabulous job in delivering high quality students to the aesthetic industry. I am always confident to recommend a ‘Demi student’, due to this high level of education, when asked by an owner or manager of a skin clinic where they can find a good therapist without bad habits. Keep up the great work Ann – the future of the industry is relying on it.

Nicola Richards

Ann and her Team at Demi are fabulous. They offer great up to date training for the film and TV industry. Great practical classes and high quality theory. Her students are well prepared for undertaking a career as makeup artists on graduating from the course. All class resources and kits are professional grade.

Emma Kilpatrick

I would recommend Demi International to anyone who’s interested in studying beauty. The school presents itself so meticulously, and all the staff are absolutely fantastic. The courses are always up to date with the latest beauty trends, and the teachers are not only super knowledgeable, but consistently teach with passion. A credit to Ann and her staff for running the best beauty school on the Sunshine Coast.

Fantastic staff!


Studying at Demi International has been an amazing experience. Ive learnt so much and loved every moment of it. Donna is an exceptional teacher with so much experience and knowledge in the industry but she’s also made learning fun. The theory part of the course was very interesting and just the right amount. The practical part of the course was a lot of fun which I thoroughly enjoyed. Overall a great course and would recommend. Im positive I will gain work from completing the course because of how hands on it was and I know quite a few girls from class that have gained employment.
Thank you so much  🙂


The Diploma of Remedial Massage at Demi International is the most well-rounded, engaging and practical courses I have ever had the pleasure of completing. I knew from a young age that I always wanted to complete a massage course, yet I had no idea it was going to be remedial. Not only am I now more knowledgeable on the anatomy of the body and how muscles function, but this course has also given me a range of different techniques to treat a variety of different muscles and conditions. I highly recommend completing this course.

Hayley Beare
I highly recommend Demi International as a training facility for beauty therapy. The Toowoomba staff, Ali and Nikki, are incredible trainers and industry professionals. Their knowledge and skills from being in the industry for many years are absolutely invaluable and made the learning experience more informative and useful. By Ali encouraging me to continually practice the skills I had learnt each week, I gained confidence with my skills which led me to securing employment in a leading salon half way through my qualification.

Cara Prince
Really enjoyed my time with demi, I gained knowledge and experience in the beauty field. The teachers were very supportive and full of knowledge. I did my training around my young boys two of them are on the autism spectrum so being able to study around them was perfect. I did diploma in beauty lash extensions spray tanning and nail technology. I work from home around my children and have been able to offer other mums time for themselves as I’m flexible and don’t mind if they need to bring a child we all deserve to be pampered. I would not be as confident or able to offer my clients the best of me without demi and the supportive teachers. I still recommend demi to people I did 3 courses clearly I’m happy with my experiences, if demi start doing derma planning I will definitely be enrolling in that ?
Emily Madden

Such a pleasure to deal with when completing my Infection Control course. Would definitely recommend. Thanks again! X
