Established in the 1970’s, Sassoon is credited with being the first brand to open an educational institution and develop a structured curriculum around its world-famous hairdressing methods. The academy in London is one of several institutions around the world that teach the Sassoon style. They offer a number of courses for students and professionals, with options available for one-to-one tuition and custom-designed programmes.
Teaching is always conducted on live models, and the academy runs numerous events and seminars for students to improve by watching industry leaders at work. Course lengths range from three day specialist programmes to 24 week postgraduate courses.
The academy does not have its own accommodation but can recommend a number of locations in the vicinity for students, as well as agencies designed to provide student housing.
Vidal Sassoon Academy is located in central London, just off Oxford street and close to Hyde Park. This location makes seeing the rest of London, the UK or Europe incredibly convenient thanks to strong transport links. London itself is an impressive metropolis with a large number of parks. It has something for everyone, from upmarket shopping and nightclubs to small cafes and museums. It is also known as one of most important cities for fashion worldwide.
I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
