Would attending a Cosmetology school in Poland also allow me to work in the US?

Hello,

does anyone know if attending a cosmetology school here in Poland would allow me to work in the USA? From what i have researched online, the cosmetology schools do not have as many hours as required in the states. States, like CA require 400 hours for nail techs and 600 hours for estheticians.... different for every state, but around there.

Has anyone attended cosmetology schools in the any other country in the EU, and what has been your experience with work?

thank you

On your first thread you have asked about physic therapy schools in Poland, and I advised you to check the Vincent Pol University in Lublin, now I see you're looking also for a cosmetology school, surprise - the same school offers also the Bachelor of Beauty Therapy:

The Minister of Science and Higher Education has given permission Vincent Pol University in Lublin to pursue undergraduate degree in Beauty Therapy. Studies in this field are Bachelor's degree programmes and take six semesters.

The main aim of Beauty Therapy studies is to educate competent cosmetologists who have broad theoretical and practical knowledge that enables them to carry out beauty treatments and advise on the right choice of cosmetics on the basis of the pharmacological knowledge.
The graduates of Beauty Therapy easily find jobs in beauty salons, biological regeneration centers, labs and beauty departments in pharmacies. The skills and knowledge gained during the course of studies will enable them to manage their own beauty salons.

It would be a complete waste of time. Nobody is going to offer you a job with sponsorship, least of all in California.

Sorry, honey, but California is not the place to go unless you have serious qualifications, and beauty school is far from that. It's a very, very tight job market at the bottom of the ladder because of undocumented aliens and the high cost of living. For unskilled jobs, you're probably better off staying in Poland.

I disagree with you on this one D.
Being young there is a whole world out there to explore.

No, you have to pass the State Boards test first (which differ State to State) before you are allowed to practice in that State.
You have to be licensed by the State in which you work by taking their test and fulfilling their requirements.
Also may I suggest while you are doing your research on this to check on the requirements to work on a cruise ship.
I have a friend that makes very good money (tips) pampering old people with more money then they know what to do with.
He gets to see the world and meets some very interesting (wealthy) people that have connections for opportunity.
Being bilingual on a cruise ship should be a major plus for you if you speak Polish.
In fact both jobs you are seeking are available on those ships.
Just my thoughts on it.

work on a cruise ship.

MUCH more realistic than trying to find work in California.

Sorta kinda. Some states may have no state-specific requirements at all. In the others, the requirements for licensure/certification are pretty easy to fulfill, and enforcement is generally lax. California, on the other hand, is in a whole other class of its own when it comes to professional licensure and enforcement. No other state comes remotely close.

Yes, I did make two posts! You are so keen!
Just trying to figure out what would be my best choice as far as a career, job, travel etc.

I lived in CA btw(am a dual citizen), and I researched schools there in both fields, but it would be twice as fast to do in Poland (in almost any field)! So who wouldn't want to save time and money right? But not if it ends up being a waste (of time and money).

How come there are so many foreign student going to medical school here( in Poznan)? Do none of the students go work in the USA afterward?

Because it is much more "economical" to go to medical school in Poland.
In my opinion Poland has a much better education system then the U.S. in the medical field.
It amazed me when a friend move here from Poland and registered her son in high school here.
He was three grades ahead of the students here in his math classes.
He was in 10th grade of high school and already doing U.S. junior college math.
That is why I tend to believe that Poland offers a much more aggressive educational system then the U.S. does.
All the Dr.'s trained here are into western medicine which is, "here, take these pills and if they don't work come back

in two weeks and we will try something else." (Cha Ching, cha ching $$$$$ next !)
That's all they know and that is why people with money in the U.S. are going to foreign countries to get their surgeries done.

Better foreign trained Doctors. (Look at Cuba, top healthcare in the world.)

Do none of the students go work in the USA afterward?

Yes as they can make a higher wage in the U.S.A. and also chase the quality materialism of the U.S.
That is why I suggested a cruise ship.
You meet wealthy people from many countries that can be a potential hook up to better the career you are seeking.

It appears that there is one thing that hasn't quite sunk in yet. As far as health-care related certification and licensure goes, California is not "the USA". It's a whole different world. It's hard for medical professionals from other states to get licensed in California, never mind from other countries.

As for foreign students studying medicine in Poland, they do it for one or more of three reasons: 1) couldn't get into medical school at home or a better country; b) couldn't afford it; and/or c) they think they can save time, like you.

If they want to practice in the States, they have major hoops to jump through, especially in California. It can take a considerable amount of effort, money and time to do so, so that it might well turn out that it would have been much easier, cheaper and faster to study in the US in the first place.

Well said as California has more debt then any other State in the Union, has run out of fresh water in the southern half
of the State, is over run with illegal's stressing the welfare system's, hospital's, schools, have low information voters that have elected liberals that have handi capped them, it's on a time table for a major earthquake for half the State to fall into the ocean, you will have to learn to speak Spanish....................

I agree with D, would be my last choice for a place to live or try to get an education.
Best bet is to come to Texas where independence has not become criminalized.
