Study to become a chef in Europe, discover our Bachelor of Culinary Arts
Culinary training with world-class theory and practice. The Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland trains the master chefs of tomorrow.
Here, students are offered a complete culinary education from traditional culinary basics to international fine-dining methods. Team spirit and creativity are the watchwords that nurture the students.
The chef training provides students with the knowledge, skill and instinct they need to embark on a successful career in the culinary arts. As part of the final exam, students are asked to demonstrate innovative ideas by developing and producing their own culinary concept.
Small classes and close collaboration between teachers and students provide students with the personal attention needed to develop into a creative and individual chef. Practising in the school’s fine-dining restaurant during the theory semester provides students with the practical experience they need to be well prepared for their internship semester.
The Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland places great emphasis on offering students the opportunity to actively develop into a professional chef. This is not only done through classroom instruction, but we also organize excursions to restaurants, wineries, food producers, fairs and gastronomic events. Our chef training and bachelor’s degree at the Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland is accredited by the University of Derby in England.
