Candidates are required to have completed Year 10 or equivalent and be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident before enrolling at The Fashion Institute.

If learners feel they may have any language, literacy or numeracy problems that may inhibit normal participation in training, this must be stated on the enrolment form.

The Fashion Institute will make reasonable adjustments to the delivery and assessment of training to enable participation and LLN support will be available to all learners throughout the duration of training and assessment.


From the 1 January 2016 all students enrolled in Nationally Recognised Trianng are required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) in order to receive their Qualification or Statement of Attainment. Your USI gives you access to a password protected online record of the training you have done since obtaining a USI as reported by your training organisations. This can be used when applying for a job, seeking a credit transfer or demonstrating pre-requisites when undertaking further training. Please provide The Makeup Institute with your USI on enrolment. If you need to create or locate your USI, please go to\
