The number of spas has grown exponentially in the last decade to make them an important part of the UK leisure industry, worth up to £70 million a year. The wellness sector has seen a considerable growth of 9% globally.

To create a successful spa you have to create an inviting and relaxing atmosphere, manage a variety of specialist therapies and run an efficient and profitable business. Most hotel resorts, both in the UK and abroad now have their own spas and they are looking for trained professionals with the skills needed to manage them.

Our foundation degree in Spa Therapies and Management will equip you with the leadership skills and practical experience you need to be able to manage a spa or start your own spa business.

In addition to your degree studies you will be given the opportunity to study a level 3 Diploma in Aromatherapy or Reflexology with VTCT, providing you with industry based skills that are attractive to prospective employers. This is a valuable opportunity to learn relevant industry skills and this foundation degree will underpin both theoretical and practical content.
