Changing career paths is a major life decision that requires a huge amount of consideration and planning. Once the excitement of a new beginning has sunk in, it’s time to start taking practical steps to make the big change happen. For many career changers, including those wanting to become a beauty therapist, this first step is getting qualified in their chosen field.
But how do you earn your beauty qualification without having to give up work or other commitments? That’s a question we hear from many of our potential students – and with good reason. People are more time poor than ever these days, with demands coming from all angles, including family life.
This is particularly true for women, who are often the primary carer of their children. The financial demands of family life in Australia mean that the number of stay-at-home mothers is falling, with most modern mothers now having to balance family, work, and career commitments. Adding a part-time beauty course to the mix can make the combination of all these factors overwhelming.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. At Demi International, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to earn their beautician qualifications, no matter their circumstances or distance from any of our 3 campuses. Read on to learn how our mixed-mode delivery method could allow you to study part of your beauty therapy course from home.
What is mixed-mode delivery?
Mixed-mode delivery is a method of study that allows you to attend a minimal amount of weekly on-campus classes and complete the rest of your beauty course online. It’s a flexible study option that lets you customise when, where, and how you study – so there’s no more reason to delay!
Perfect for working mothers, mixed-mode and distance learning beauty courses reduce commuting times and costs, and gives you flexibility and support when you need it most. Completing part of your nail technology or makeup course online is a great way to achieve a study/life balance and still make time for your other commitments.
With this in mind, it’s no wonder that the number of students choosing flexible study options has grown over the past decade and continues to do so. For many people, part-time beauty courses are a way to diversify their skills and explore a new career path without giving up their current job. It’s a low-risk, high-reward opportunity to enter an exciting new field like the beauty industry.

As a registered training organisation (RTO) with a strong reputation for delivering mixed-mode, flexible learning, Demi International promises support from expert trainers and an easy-to-use learning system. Students log in and access their course material online at times that work for them, as opposed to attending lectures at specific times. At all stages, we support our students and will help you develop effective strategies for remaining up to date with work and assignments.
We’ll also give you all the resources and materials you need to complete your course. Enrolling in one of our beauty therapy courses and choosing mixed-mode delivery gives you access to plenty of online resources, video lectures, and audio that will help you succeed in your studies.

With as little as 1 day a week on campus, our mixed-mode and distance learning beauty courses are perfect for rural students or those who can’t commit to full-time study. If you can spare a day a week, you could earn a qualification in beauty from one of Australia’s top beauty schools in no time.
