What Will You Learn?

The skin is the human body's largest organ — we should all get to know ours a little better. From the Understanding Skin Health Diploma Course, you’ll learn about the different types of skin, how the skin functions, and how to diagnose and treat skin conditions.

Learn about the structure of the skin, its various components and what they do, what determines skin type and conditions, and how the skin can become imbalanced.

Discover the different skin types and characteristics, internal and external factors that affect our skin, and contagious diseases and common disorders of the skin.

Understand how the skin ages – the structures and factors that cause and promote ageing – and how hormones affect the skin, including a look at the issues and skin conditions that occur as a result of hormonal changes.

Explore skin analysis, where you’ll learn how to identify different skin types and recognise specific conditions that contribute to these skin types.

Learn about specific skin conditions and why they occur. The Understanding Skin Health Diploma Course covers the different types of acne and how they form, why pigmentation marks occur on the skin and how to help prevent these, and the signs and symptoms of rosacea, along with its causes, what makes it worse, and its treatments.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Become familiar with skin anatomy and physiology
  • Explore skin types and disorders
  • Discover how ageing occurs and how hormones affect the skin 
  • Learn how to conduct a skin analysis
  • Learn about specific skin conditions and why they occur – acne, pigmentation, rosacea

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
