Cosmetology programme description

The aim of the Cosmetology studies is to educate professionals – cosmetologists who possess a broad factual and practical knowledge enabling them to perform selected cosmetic procedures (e.g.: skin revitalisation procedures, procedures delaying the process of ageing and beautifying and correcting the skin), to select cosmetics and indicate their applications based on pharmacological knowledge as well as to use physical instruments used in cosmetic procedures.

During this programme, students acquire practical skills enabling to improve physiological state of the body and work in close cooperation with medical professionals (dermatologists, allergists, plastic surgeons) in the care of affected skin. They can find employment not only in beauty salons and podologist offices, but also in cosmetic laboratories, cosmetic departments of pharmacies and drugstores, and in wellness facilities. The acquired professional knowledge also allows them to independently organise, set up, equip and run a beauty salon.
