Koreans visit Sydney beauty school

Sixty-seven Korean hair and beauty students arrived in Australia this week for a five-day study program hosted by the Australasian College Broadway in Sydney.
According to Australasian College Broadway chairwoman, Maureen Houssein-Mustafa, the delegation is the largest group of Koreans to have ever been hosted by the Australian hair and beauty industry.
Maureen said she was extremely proud to host the study tour and further “strengthen our relationship with our counterparts in Korea”.
“Previously, Korean students made up the largest group of international visitors due to their strong affinity with our industry,” she said.
“However, the recent changes to the skilled migration list have caused a significant drop in enrolments, and study tours such as these are absolutely vital to revive the interest and demonstrate the high level of education that’s on offer to them despite the changes.”
The 16-year-old female students, who are currently studying at Yun Hee Beauty High School in Seoul, will be shown “professional techniques within three areas including hair, makeup and nails” during the study tour.
In addition, the students will have the opportunity to visit popular tourist attractions including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge and “get a sense of what the culture of a major metropolitan Australian city is like”.  
The students can choose to undertake further study at the College when they complete their High School Certificate in Korea.
