I have studied CIDESCO course at The Coogan Bergin College in 2008-2009. It was a complete change of my career from Law to Beauty Therapy so I was determine to find a good suitable college in London or Dublin. I personally went to all the Beauty colleges I had short listed to get a feel and speak to tutors. I chose Coogan Bergin because of the warm friendliness of Sonia who is the vice-principal, the professionalism and generally good feel about the place. Mind you I visited it on a rare sunny day in Dublin:-)) I was told that the college had a very impressive success rate in passing exams. I must say I have never regretted my choice! It is not an easy course to study, that’s why it is important to do it where you feel comfortable and where people want to help you to achieve your best. Human touch and empathy are also important! I would say to all prospective students what I better understand now:”study hard and enjoy it because time passes so quickly. You will meet different people – students, tutors and clients…try to get on- it is also a good training for our people related vocation! You are in good hands so do your bit and flourish!” Good luck;-))
I attended Coogan Bergin College in 2002- 2003.I had a great experience here and I got excellent training to the highest standard. Coogan Bergin gave me the essential skills I needed to achieve my goal of running my own salon. I would highly recommend this college to anyone who wants to work in the beauty industry
I studied at Coogan Bergin from 2014-2015 and loved every minute. I had completed my degree in psychology and decided to pursue my love for beauty and I was so happy I chose Coogan Bergin to do this. The teachers were amazing and brought out the best in every student. We got the very best tutoring from the best teachers with amazing experience. I was more than prepared for working in a salon and the beauty industry when I graduated and was very confident going out to look for work. Work was easy to find as the college has a brilliant reputation and deliver the best teaching and learning to their students. I couldn't recommend Coogan Bergin highly enough to anyone looking to start in the beauty industry.
Coogan-Bergin was recommended to me by many professionals in the Beauty Industry. I visited other colleges and it was clear to me that Coogan Bergin would be my number one choice. I really enjoyed the course. Time goes quickly and it’s important to keep up with the practical and theory. The standard of teaching practice and guidance is excellent and I always felt confident going into my exams. The college has recently been refurbished which makes it a beautiful up to date environment to study in.
I studied the post grad CIDESCO course from April to July 2015.THe reason I picked Coogan bergin to complete my course was because when I meet Sonia she explained the course to me in great detail .i am qualified 26 years so it was going to be a challenge for me to go back and study after such a long period of time and as I was only at collage 2 days a week Sonia made sure I had everything covered in time for my exams, and helped me to be very well prepared .She had great faith in me as I doubted at times would I be able as I was working full time and looking after a home and family , I passed my CIDESCO exams and it was a great feeling ,each and everyone of the full time students made feel very welcome as I only joined the class on a Wednesday and Friday and were very good on giving me notes to make my learning a lot easier it was a great experience and I would recommend the collage to either start off a career in beauty therapy or in my case to further my career as I am now branching out to teaching beauty therapy.
I am CIDESCO qualified through Coogan Bergin. Experience gained here during the course is invaluable to me now in a highly competitive marketplace. Skills learnt during the course equip a student immediately to function in the professional world. Hand pressure & technique have proven a key to commercial success as have other areas of the course. Electrolysis & make-up artistry plus both qualifications (CIBTAC & CIDESCO) provide a person with immediate access to employment or self-employment I am delighted to recommend all areas of the course & the invaluable expertise of all staff.
I studied in Coogan Bergin 2014/15; I found the course content to be very informative and helpful in setting you up for the working environment. The practical demonstrations, lectures, teachers and other students made it a very quick and enjoyable year of study. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in beauty therapy.
That's really amazing college ,we got a lot of knowledge from the college. Teachers were full of energy to improve our skills. They help each and all student to learn everything, even I can't speak good English and I am very shy person but at the end I was student of the year just because of my intelligent teachers who pushed me a lot in every step.
I completed a full 9 month course at Coogan Bergin to be certified in CIBTAC AND CIDESCO on recommendation from a past student as I had visited numerous colleges and she said I wouldn’t regret choosing this college (which I didn’t). During my time at Coogan Bergin I found the facilities and tutors to be exceptional. They taught to such a high standard that on completion it made going into the industry much easier as you were confident in your ability. To complete my CIDESCO hours I went to work for the 5* Maricel Spa in Mallorca, an opportunity I will be forever grateful for. Sonia helped with the process which went up and beyond her duties. The support and encouragement past graduation is fantastic. It was not only the amazing standard of education on offer but the experience; I made some lifelong friends that too have gone on to be very successful in beauty and wellbeing, home and abroad. Sonia and Amy gave me strong foundations to follow my dreams and instilled a passion that keeps on growing.
In 2012 I enrolled for the Cidesco course at Coogan Bergin Beauty College. As a mature and foreign student with a full time job it was a huge challenge but I couldn't be in better hands. Sonia and Sheila have done all in their power to offer me the support I've need it to accomplish my goal....In 2013 I've finish as the inspirational student of the year and passed my exams becoming a proud Cidesco graduate. It was an unforgettable year, which I've enjoyed in every way, my colleagues were a mix of foreigners and Irish and I cannot forget our lunch breaks when we would go in the park for some fresh air or just have a stroll on beautiful Grafton street. The support from the college tutor and principal didn't stop when I've finished the college but continued...seeing that I'm struggling to find a job they offered me a part time position in the beauty clinic for few months. Today I'm a spa therapist at the Radgale Hall ,the biggest and one of the best spas in Uk. I cannot recommend enough this college , for anybody who is thinking seriously about a career in beauty therapy, you will find very high standards and one of the best(if not the best) tutor in the country.
