The story of Grayclay: A leader in health and medical aesthetics education
Established in 2006, GrayClay evolved from research into the time and associated costs medical practices were investing in the employment and training of highly-skilled staff. Determined to fill a gap in the market, two friends decided to create a medical education institution that would provide the medical industry with outstanding, quality candidates, while providing students with the supportive, yet challenging environment for real-world learning. When you study with GrayClay you can rest assured that your lecturers have a professional medical and aesthetics background and years of industry experience.

Our team pledge: Eco-friendly environment in clinics and medical education.
After learning that it takes 10 years to grow a tree and that one tree only provides 175 reams of paper, the Grayclay team set out to become a paperless college. With some brilliant staff contributions to resolve this issue, Grayclay embraced the mantra “we don’t print” and turned to digital technology and reducing printing by an estimated 97%.
Active steps are now used to continuously improve operations to reduce our impact on the environment. As part of this initiative, the team researched and introduced colloidal oatmeal clinical gloves which are latex free, nitrile free and biodegradable. The perfect all round glove.
In 2018, Grayclay removed all plastic and paper cups from our college, providing students with their own unique cups and reducing unnecessary waste.
