Each correspondence course must be completed by one person only and this must be the person who has registered for the course. Substitutions are not permitted at any time during the course. If we discover that more than one person has completed the same course; you will not graduate from the NHJ Style Academy.
You can complete the course at your own pace but to qualify for a certificate you must complete the course within a 12 month period from the date you commit i.e. register and pay a deposit.
Assessment and feedback
The tutor will assess and give feedback on each module within 2 weeks of submission. If the tutor is ill or unable to send back feedback for other reasons we will make every effort to pass submitted tasks to another qualified tutor for assessment to meet this timeframe. If the tutor does not feel you have completed a module satisfactorily you may be asked to re-do certain tasks before we send you the next module.
Work experience is not an official part of the correspondence course. However, after you have completed the correspondence course you can request a day of work experience, and if possible we will arrange this for you. This will take place in the UK, and all personal shopping days take place in London. You will be required to pay for your own travel and accommodation expenses. If a student commits to a work experience opportunity but then cancels we won't be able to offer any further work experience sessions. The work experience day must be taken within 3 months after the course ends unless otherwise agreed with the course tutor.
