Formula Botanica courses are totally self-paced, and you can study with Formula Botanica regardless of your schedule. We are frequently asked about the time it takes to complete our courses and we provide you an estimate below:
The diploma courses listed below require you to dedicate around 100 hours of study and formulation. Your work will involve practical formulation experiments, as well as theory study on topics such as skin anatomy and cosmetic regulations. Our diploma courses include:
- Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation
- Diploma in Organic Haircare Formulation
- Advanced Diploma in Organic Cosmetic Science
The Diploma in Beauty Brand Business Management requires you to dedicate around 150 hours of study time. This course is part online course with over 600 pages of detailed lessons, guides, workbooks and checklists, and part online summit, with over 25 hours of interviews with experts in their field.
We estimate that based on 5-8 study hours per week, students can complete diplomas in approximately 6 months. We give you two years' access to your course, which we estimate is a comfortable amount of time to complete the course if you apply yourself and study. We provide course planners for most of our courses too.
