An Overview of the Course

The Level 7 Diploma opens many doors and opportunities for those seeking, or who already have, a career in aesthetic medicine. We have meticulously crafted the Level 7 Diploma to be the most competitive and comprehensive course, covering a breadth and depth of key topics. From the practical support of each candidate’s professional development in aesthetic injectables to ethical training and insights into patient psychology, Level 7 covers all of the bases. We continually stay updated with emerging research and trends to keep our curriculum up-to-date with the latest, and safest, techniques – ensuring that our candidates remain at the forefront of the field. The course has been specifically crafted to allow excellence in aesthetic education, it is split into 4 key components:

Practical portfolio

As part of the practical portfolio, candidates will undergo supervised learning and assessment of procedural skills during mentoring sessions. They’ll also have a logbook facility to record all 40 procedures (20 observed and 20 performed) in toxin and dermal filler modalities. There are 40 procedures to be obtained on mentoring sessions with expert supervision in small practical training groups.

Theoretical training

In this section, candidates will have access to E-learning modules that provide a comprehensive background into aesthetic medicine through lectures, literature papers, current evidence, guidelines and forums. Full completion of this E-Learning library is required to facilitate the Coursework and Critical Appraisal components of the qualification. It’s also required that candidates complete fully referenced short essays and coursework based on the e-learning modules to demonstrate their theoretical competencies. 

Practical training

As part of the practical training, students will experience mentoring days for hands-on injecting experience. This CPD-certified cosmetic course will provide the knowledge and skills necessary to perform foundation aesthetic procedures safely, effectively, and with confidence. It is also optional to do additional courses such as the Advanced Course and Masterclass.

Academic portfolio

For the academic portfolio part of the diploma, candidates must submit coursework on an allocated topic in aesthetic medicine, as assigned by their training provider. They must also submit a case study related to aesthetic practice, and must undertake a critical appraisal of a published paper in aesthetic medicine. 

Support and Training During the Course

The Level 7 Diploma’s unique holistic approach to aesthetic medicine means candidates gain the highest standards in practical training and support – to equip them for a successful career. Through supervised hands-on sessions, live demonstrations, and case studies, students gain invaluable experience, as well as the competence and confidence to perform techniques on their own patients. Our training and support goes well beyond the course itself; our experienced faculty continues to offer guidance to students outside of the classroom and after the diploma has been completed.

The course is split into different sessions that cover a variety of observed and performed procedures, where we teach the entire treatment process, from information and consent to treatment and aftercare. In order to meet the practical training element of the course, students must evidence 40 procedures in a portfolio. This is facilitated through 3-5 morning sessions, held at weekends, where everything is set up for the students, including patients, portfolio, and products. We take care of all the arrangements beforehand and afterward, including patient aftercare. Students simply need to turn up, ready to inject under the close supervision of our expert trainers. We also offer one-to-one training from one of our highly experienced trainers for those looking to fast-track their completion of the qualification.
