About Us

NZIEBTh SchoolThe New Zealand Institute of Electrolysis and Beauty Therapy was established in January 1984. Situated In the heart of the Manawatu, The Institute is one of the most modern and up to date schools in New Zealand. Designed specifically for Beauty Therapy and Electrolysis, the Institute is beautifully appointed creating a serene atmosphere for students entering into a creative new profession.

One of the aims of the school is to offer the students quality tuition. All the tutors are well experienced and qualified within their own fields. The Institute aims to offer all the latest trends, techniques and equipment from overseas. Importance is given to the need for developing client handling skills and the different problems facing therapists and electrologists in day to day work. To ensure our students are able to cope with these situations in “real life” away from the school environment, we structure our syllabus to include clinic days in which we allow students to work in a clinical situation with outside clients for several lessons each week.

At the Institute, we realise the importance for recognized quality skin care products. All products are professional salon ranges and are supplied by the school. As we place importance on high standards of education we are registered with 2 International Qualification Boards, CIBTAC and CIDESCO. Our courses are also approved and accredited by NZQA under the provision of the Education Amendment Act 1990. This allows our students to apply for Student Loans and allowances through StudyLink.

Because our work is so closely aligned to health and well being, we are a “Smoke Free Zone”, this means smoking is not encouraged in or around the school and also in school uniform as you are a walking example of the profession you have chosen to enter. This school is registered as a private training establishment by NZQA under the Education Act 1989. Enquiries are welcome if there is an area you would like to cover that may not be listed in our prospectus, we will be only too happy to discuss this with you.

Full time Beauty Therapy, Electrolysis and Beautician courses start in January and July each year.

As Palmerston North is known as “Student City”, there is an abundance of good student accommodation available.
