With such strong industry recognition, we have always attracted students through word-of mouth. In recent years, the power of social media and reviews have been another way for potential students to discover Delamar. With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to collate our reviews from Google and Facebook this year and show you what our most recent graduates have to say about their experience of Delamar Academy:
1 Year Cert HE Professional Make-up Design course 2018/19
“The structure of the courses, the teaching, the facilities, the staff and equipment are just beyond your imagination.”
I have just graduated from the 1 Year Cert HE Professional Make-up Design Course at Delamar Academy. What an amazing year it was. My experience at Delamar Academy was incredible. I learned so much from prosthetics to casualty to fashion and more. With help from the amazing tutors being some of the most talented Oscar and BAFTA winning make-up artists in the industry. I was able to achieve things I could never have imagined! The tutors were so supportive, patient and just all round amazing mentors who were willing to share all their very latest tips and techniques and offer us all the help we needed. The structure or the courses, the teaching, the facilities, the staff and equipment are just beyond your imagination.
During the 1-year course I studied 6 weeks advanced fashion with my Tutor Joanne. I have taken away so much knowledge from those 6 weeks along with some amazing memories. Every day was a new and exciting challenge. We had the opportunity to work with the most incredible models and photographers, which is a great start for our portfolios. Joanne is an amazing teacher – so supportive and really helped build-up my confidence throughout the 6 weeks.
While studying at Delamar, there are also some fantastic opportunities such as master classes organised by the lovely Emma, that provide learning top tips and being inspired by top make-up artists in the industry. You will also get to attend inspiring talks from ex graduates now working in the industry to give you great advice and answer any questions you may have.
I would highly recommend Delamar Academy is you are looking to become a makeup artist. Delamar has helped build my confidence up so much and what I have learned has been invaluable, I really couldn’t recommend it enough! It is not an easy ride and is extremely hard work but is worth it! The team are so helpful and supportive and help in making every day amazing and full of challenges. Leda is incredibly supportive and cares very much about each and every student. She does everything to make sure that each person is okay and gaining from the course.
“Completing the one year course at Delamar was the best decision of my life.”
Where do I start? Completing the one year course at Delamar was the best decision of my life. Over the past year, not only have I grown as a make-up artist, but I have grown as a person, and that is all down to the Academy. The tutors are outstanding and teach you everything from the core skills to industry etiquette. Leda, Emma, Debbie, Monika and Marcia are so helpful and supportive from day one and continue to do so after completing the course. I will be forever grateful for everything Delamar has done for me and I couldn’t recommend the Academy enough.
“If you’re considering a makeup/hair/prosthetics school, then I say they you can’t get much higher standards than here!”
A truly amazing place to study, the tutors are the top in their field and the industry knowledge is invaluable. The skills I have learnt on my 1-year course here have given me a wider range of opportunities, from hair to SFX, fashion makeup and even prosthetics. There are many outside opportunities offered, with master classes from top people in the makeup industry across film, TV and fashion. These could also be demonstrations in different stores over London, so we build up our product knowledge of different brands (and get a nice discount perhaps!). There are also opportunities to build up your work throughout the year, on different shoots and student films, which all build confidence in your skills and accustom you to being on set. All the staff at the school are really lovely and supportive, and are happy to help with whatever questions you may have. I shall really miss them but also know I’ll still be in touch. If you’re considering a makeup/hair/prosthetics school, then I say they you can’t get much higher standards than here!
“Delamar has allowed me to pursue dreams that seemed unachievable a few years ago. Now I am working in my dream job.”
Studying the 1 year course at Delamar was definitely the best decision I have ever made. For so long I was unsure of where I wanted to go with my career, knowing in the back of my head that I had a love for hair and makeup. I followed my gut and chose to study at Delamar and from the moment I stepped in the door I knew I had chosen the right place.
I chose to take the Advanced Hair module and I could not recommend it enough. The 6 weeks of Advanced Hair equips you with skills and knowledge that is invaluable for the industry. Hair skills are essential if you want to succeed in film, tv or theatre. Furthermore you are being taught by some of the top hair and makeup artists, who are all currently working in the industry.
Delamar Academy is like a little family and I cannot thank the tutors and staff at Delamar enough for all the support they have given throughout the year. Delamar has allowed me to pursue dreams that seemed unachievable a few years ago. Now I am working in my dream job.
If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it!
22 Week Advanced Complete Make-up Artist Course 2019
“I feel well equipped to begin my career!”
Best decision I’ve ever made. I have just completed the 22 week Advanced Complete Makeup Artist Course. As I had already completed a 4-year University degree (un-makeup and hair related), I wanted to attend a shorter course than the 1 year course, but one that taught me all of necessary skills to potentially work in any area of makeup and hair. This course was perfect and I feel well equipped to begin my career! The tutors are amazing and really push you to your full potential. As they are all currently working in the industry, you know that you are getting the best help and support possible, plus access to a multitude of products! Would highly recommend this course.
“After opting out of the University route, it was a big risk for me and already I’ve been given so many opportunities from having been at Delamar.”
I’m so pleased I chose Delamar. Both the staff and tutors are so friendly and genuinely want to see you succeed. After opting out of the University route, it was a big risk for me and already I’ve been given so many opportunities from having been at Delamar. I feel like I’ve learnt everything and more to do with Hair and Makeup, which has enabled me to leave on a positive note ready to enter the industry. The training is so thorough and really tunes your eye to seeing things objectively. They keep everything up-to-date with techniques and products and the general vibe of the academy just doesn’t compare to anywhere else. Thankyou Delamar 🙂
16 Week Complete Make-up Artist Course
“As a current student I can say THIS SCHOOL IS FABULOUS!”
As a current student I can say THIS SCHOOL IS FABULOUS! What I have being learning here is beyond my expectations! They are organised and amazing. Theory and practice with super amazing, experienced teachers and super helpful staff – plus using best products on the market made all the difference. It makes you feel professional and ready to work. You get to use all of the good quality makeup so really nothing is standing on the way between you and achieving what you went there for.
Thank you Delamar for being there for me always.
It’s not just a school – it’s a FAMILY and they welcome everyone with open hearts. #mydelamarfamily
“…each tutor gives their heart and soul into their teaching.”
Coming to Delamar wasn’t just about learning skills for film and television, it was an experience far beyond. The faculty at Delamar is brilliant and the best part is that each tutor gives their heart and soul into their teaching. I couldn’t have made a better decision. I came in with my confidence at 0 and now it’s at 100. Thank you Delamar. I found a second family here.
