Graduation & Reviews

Graduation Feb 2022

After lots hard work and pressure of exams, it’s great to have something to look forward to. Our graduation from February 2022 was an exciting one as it included students going all the way back to 2019.

For a change of scenery, this graduation ceremony was held in the Elm Park Golf Club. At the end of every cohort of students, we love taking the opportunity to recognise all the hard work that goes on through the duration of every course. We celebrate students from Hairdressing, CIDESCO Beauty Therapy, Beauty Specialist Diploma, Teacher Training, Advanced Skincare and Nail Technicians, as well as many more.

The day always begins with a Prosecco reception and friendly welcome upon arrival and shortly after followed by a three course meal. When everyone is well fed, it’s time for the presentation of Galligan Diplomas and an awards ceremony. There is always opportunity to get a professional photograph taken in cap and gown to really mark the occasion. Our wonderful photographer Babs Daly always catches special moments throughout the day.

Student of the year awards are presented to the students who go above and beyond throughout their course and every student is gifted a rose. The very special Kay Galligan, founder of the Galligan College was eager to provide words of wisdom and encouragement to all the newly graduated attendees.

Below you can read a selection of reviews from some of the students who attended the graduation ceremony along with their images from the day.

Beauty Specialist Diploma
Studying at Galligan was a great experience, I liked that they separate classes in small groups , giving a more individual training. All materials needed for the practical training were provided. Excellent preparation for the ITEC, CIBTAC and CIDESCO exams.”

CIDESCO Beauty Therapy
“The Galligan College exceeded all my expectations. Every day was filled with learning in the most comfortable and fun environment. All the staff members go above and beyond for their students. Even having finished the course I know that I can always reach out to college if ever I need guidance in my career and future in the beauty industry. I would like to thank everyone at the Galligan college for all their help throughout the course and I am so happy to be returning to take part in the post graduate advanced skincare course!”

Advanced Skincare Course
“I did my Advanced Aesthetics and CIDESCO from Galligan College. The trainers are excellent with amazing subject knowledge and experience, and provided very good support during the programs.
I got a job as a Laser / Skin Therapist within a month of completion of my course! I highly recommend Galligan College for the high quality and commitment of the lecturers.”


Thank you to all the students, tutors, friends and family members that attended to make the day so special.
