    What is the programme about?
    This new Culinary Arts Programme provides graduates with the skills to cook at a high level of competence and to establish a base for further professional career development. This programme prepares students for work as professional chefs in the hospitality and tourism sectors. A chef will learn to be creative in the kitchen but also requires good business management and communication skills to organise and direct staff in the kitchen environment. A Culinary Arts qualification is a passport to travel and the programme is recognised worldwide. Currently, many of our graduates hold leading positions with some of the top hospitality brands in the world.

    The programme covers the theory and practice of professional cookery and includes work placements in Year 2 and Year 3. Students have the option to complete their work placement with world-renowned resorts in many international locations including Cape Cod, Paris, London and Dubai.

    Note: Students will require €450 approx. for class materials, knives, books, uniforms and safety shoes in the first week of college.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    The programme will appeal to students interested in developing a career as a professional chef in the hospitality and tourism industry. If you have a flair for cookery and a creative mind-set with a passion for food, then this is the course for you. The hotel industry seeks to train approximately 5,000 chefs per year and there are exciting and plentiful career options for students both nationally and internationally.
