WHY STUDY A DIPLOMA ?

WHILE SO MANY ARTISTS ARRIVE AT THEIR DESTINATION BY CHANCE, GIFT, OR PASSION, ALL NEED TO BE FINE-TUNED WITH FORMAL EDUCATION. A DIPLOMA HELPS YOU INCREASE YOUR CONFIDENCE AS AN ARTIST - SOMETIMES THAT LACK OF CONFIDENCE CAN BE THE ONE THING HOLDING YOU BACK FROM ACHIEVING GREAT THINGS. DIPLOMA TRAINING WILL MAKE YOU A BETTER, MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE ARTIST. THIS PREPARES YOU FOR YOUR CAREER AHEAD IN A VERY POSITIVE WAY.

We warmly welcome students from all walks of life, all backgrounds, cultures, religions and nationalities.  Being in a creative industry, we value the differences that everyone brings to the classroom because our best collaborations come from differences, not from similarities.

VET Student Loans

Details

A VET Student loan is a Commonwealth Government program, which allows eligible students to study a Diploma now, and repay their tuition fees at a later date. Your tuition fees are repaid through the Australian tax system, once your income reaches a certain threshold. There is a loan fee and your loan remains a person debt until it’s repaid.

To be eligible, you must either:

  • be an Australian citizen, or
  • hold an eligible permanent humanitarian visa and usually reside in Australia, or
  • be a New Zealand citizen on Special Category Visa (SCV subclass 444) who meets the long term residency requirements.*

* Holders of other permanent visas and temporary visas are NOT eligible for a VET Student Loan

You must also:

  • have a tax file number (TFN) or be applying for one. The personal details of your TFN with the ATO, must match the personal details you have provided to the Academy of Makeup, for example your name and date of birth
  • have a Unique Student Identifier (USI)
  • intend to undertake your course primarily in Australia
  • meet the academic suitability requirements of the VET Student Loans Student Entry Procedure (that is, assessed as academically suitable to undertake a high level vocational qualification)
  • have a Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN)
  • not have exceeded your lifetime Commonwealth student loan limit, which is set each year by the Commonwealth
  • have read the VET Student Loans information booklet.
  • have given any requested documentation to the Academy of Makeup and submitted the electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) online by the first census day no less than two business days after enrolling
  • comply with ongoing Commonwealth engagement and progression requests to log on to complete their online student engagement form to confirm that you are a genuine student, continuing to study and the progress in your course. You will get these requests two or three times a year, depending on how long your course is. If you do not complete the form and survey within the required time, you may be ineligible to continue accessing VET Student Loans to pay for the remainder of your course tuition fees.


Lifetime Loan Limit
The lifetime loan limit is the total amount you can incur in your lifetime under any Commonwealth HELP student loan scheme – whether it is Higher Education FEE-HELP, VET FEE-HELP or a VET Student Loan. It is indexed each year, in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).  Students can view their loan obligations by logging into myHELPbalance on the Study Assist website. You will need your Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN) to log in.

Renewable HELP Balance
Your HELP balance is renewable. Any compulsory or voluntary repayments starting from the 2019-20 income year will top up your HELP balance. These repayments will be applied to your HELP balance from 1 July 2020 onwards, after you have submitted your tax return to the ATO. Repayments can be re-borrowed in the future, up to the current HELP loan limit.

What is a Unique Student Identifier (USI)?
The Commonwealth requires all students studying in a nationally recognised training course to have a USI. If you already have one, please ensure you use this same USI whenever you enrol for any training. If you don't have a USI, go to https://www.usi.gov.au/ to register before you apply to enrol, or you can apply as part of your enrolment.

What is a Commonwealth Higher Education Student Support Number (CHESSN)?
A CHESSN is allocated to all students when they first access a Commonwealth loan. Any Commonwealth student loan you take is recorded against your CHESSN. If you already have a CHESSN, please supply that number. Otherwise, the Academy of Makeup will provide you with one during your application process.

New Zealand Citizens
The residency requirements for New Zealand citizens on a Special Category Visa are:

  • You first began living in Australia at least 10 years before applying for a loan, and at that time, were a child under 18 years of age and did not have a spouse or de-facto partner; and
  • You have been in Australia for at least eight of the 10 years immediately prior to applying and at least 18 months of the last two years.

You will need to provide evidence of your eligibility to the Academy of Makeup before requesting a VET Student Loan.

Academy TV

AOM TV

AOM TV is like having a front row seat in our makeup classes! It’s designed to provide an added level of learning for our students, to really boost and develop their skills to the very highest level.

With over 120 amazing makeup demonstrations, the AOM TV video library is continually growing.

We film AOM TV in crystal clear, 4K, ultra Hi-Definition, so you get to see everything just perfectly. Our training team presents each makeup technique in a clear and easy to understand way, just like it is in class.

AOM TV does not replace our face-to-face classroom teaching. It is considered a supplement to it, and is most certainly a huge advantage to our students, allowing them unlimited viewing any time they want.  

We encourage all our students to view a session on AOM TV before coming into class. This prepares them for that particular day’s is class, allowing them to arrive pre-prepared, armed with the knowledge needed to get a head start on that day’s technique.


The Academy of Makeup is working hard to support Australia’s future generations of Makeup Artist.
  We’ve created an incredible COVID-19 relief package, with no out-of-pocket expenses for tools and equipment, so you can get started on your career with minimum financial outlay.

Instead of buying tools/equipment required for class, students may use these provided in class, at no cost to them. In addition we are gifting all March 2021 students with make up, brushes and tool kits to help you get on your way with no financial outlay.

SHOW MORE

We’re also an approved VET Student Loans Provider, meaning that eligible students can have their course fees Government subsidized & not pay any fees now, until your income reaches the re-payment threshold.

As an added bonus, our Diploma course now includes an Infection Control module, assisting you to gain the skills you’ll need to become a and trusted Makeup Artist in future.

Lastly, you can study with confidence, knowing that we have a solid COVID Safe Plan in place, allowing for online learning transition, or location changes or extra training, minimising any interruption to your studies.
