Hannah Khan (Owner of Hannah in London Medispa)


Just wanted to write a quick review with my experience with these guys. So I’m a first time salon owner in North West London and I’m so nervous because it’s my first business so I came to Ray Cochrane school for my laser training. I can honestly say this was the only school in the UK who used the latest tech to teach there student most other schools that I looked at had old laser machines so out of date that there wasn’t a point of even learning on them. Their teacher always adapt to your circumstances so comes classes I couldn’t make due to my business how ever they always bent backwards but doing an extra hour for me on another day I can not stress honestly how good these guys are and I hope you guys read properly about each school before you join to do your courses…. good luck everyone !!!


Lucy Xu (Owner of Premier Laser & Skin Clinic award winning chain)


We have employed a few graduates from Ray Cochrane Beauty School during the last two years. They all have a “can do” attitude and eager to learn new treatments. They are knowledgeable with skin care treatments and products.

I would highly recommend this school to any salons/clinics, which are willing to take on new graduates.

Our daughter was studying for a year and a half in Ray Cochrane Beauty School. We noticed great progress that she was and has achieved through out this year. We are very thankful to her teachers that put big effort in teaching her all of the skills she needed to know. They always gave as much help as our daughter needed. We do understand that our daughter need more time to learn the theory and the practical, but at the end that wasn’t the issue, as she had successfully passed her CIBTAC examinations and also she had passed her practical CIDESCO exam.

Our daughter had a chance to practice on actual clients and we had seen our daughter coming from the client day smiling and happy about her achievements. This is a great place for girls to become great specialists.
