How are the lessons are conducted at the academy?

The lessons are not conducted at fixed times. (It is possible to designate any day of the week) The available times for lessons are 10am-7pm on weekdays and 10am to 6pm on weekends. All courses are conducted in small groups and are taught by a highly experienced Japanese instructor.

How is the curriculum constructed?

We are able to construct them in a flexible manner, in order to suit each student’s lifestyle. Please feel free to inquire about creating a curriculum, which suits your needs.

How can I practice what I am taught?

If a student wishes to practice outside of designated lesson times, a reservation can be booked beforehand, which allows students to:
∴ Practice on self
∴ Practice using a nail chip stand
∴ Practice using a dummy hand
∴ Practice using a model (Friends or fellow students)

Are there additional costs once the course completed?

This time is only the estimated time required for a student to graduate, therefore normally no additional costs will be incurred. However, in the case of students failing to attend classes, or if they do not act in a way expected of students at the academy, exceptions may apply. For cancellations on the day of the lesson, cancellation fees may apply.

After finishing a lesson, is it possible to ask about the techniques learned, or receive advice from staff?

Yes, it is possible under our academy’s workshop system.
Our workshop involves, applying the learned techniques on models such as your friends or fellow students.
