Applicants must have some basic qualification in massage, or attend a CSSM Introductory massage workshop before the Diploma course begins.

An application is not complete until the CSSM have confirmed that there place is available and the applicant has paid a deposit.

One-Off Payment

The balance of the full course fee is payable 28 days before the course starts. Payment can be made by cheque or bank transfer.

12 or 15 Month Payment Plan

The balance can be paid by monthly direct debit instalments.

Once accepted, the applicant will receive a link to setup a Direct Debit which must be completed and returned to us before the course begins. There will be administration charge of £50.00 for this. The first payment must be set for the 1st day of the month in which your course begins, for example if your course begins on 15th June the first payment will be on 1st June. You will be debited from your account on the 1st of each month until your plan is complete.

If you select a 15 month payment plan, all payments must be paid before you receive your qualification. 

Once the course has begun you are liable for the full course fee, whether you complete the course or not. CSSM will take legal proceedings if necessary to recover the full fee if payments are stopped early.

Early cancellation


The full deposit is non refundable if you cancel your place. You will be able to attend a future diploma course subject to availability.

Application changes

If, due to extenuating circumstances you need to defer to a later course you may be able to do so providing notice is given at least 6 weeks before your course begins. This may depend on there being a place available on a future course.

If it is less than 6 weeks prior to the start of your course a transfer fee of £100 will be applied, providing there is a place available on that course.

Once you have started your course

A 100% attendance record is required for the completion of the course.

If you miss any classes you will have to arrange a ‘catch up’. We may be able to slot you in on to another diploma course for the day/days that you have missed. If this is not possible you will have to arrange private tuition with one of the tutors.

A fee of £30 per hour will be payable directly to the tutor.
