Culinary Arts - Le Bouveret Campus
The course takes place at our Le Bouveret campus on Lake Geneva where we host our new culinary arts facility – Apicius: a contemporary, 4-storey construction custom-designed to enhance the professional learning experience for our culinary students.

The campus also houses the “Mosimann Collection”: an exceptional collection of historic cookbooks and culinary artefacts collected over half a century by Swiss Masterchef, Anton Mosimann OBE. Chef to the British Royal family, the collection includes menus, dinner planning and gala setups with which he has delighted royals and celebrities for the last 50 years.

The Kitchen Experience
Our experienced and decorated chef instructors teach culinary demonstrations in front of the class to explain each technique. Students then practice the techniques learned during the demonstration with chef guidance every step of the way. While a kitchen is a disciplined environment, the teaching style remains approachable and light-hearted.

Students who enrol and complete at least 2 consecutive terms qualify for a paid full-time internship in Switzerland or abroad. For those students completing an internship in Switzerland, language courses may become a mandatory part of the programme in preparation for the placement. *Minimum gross monthly salary in Switzerland: CHF 2,212.-
Pastry & Chocolate - Lucerne Campus
Explore the world of European pastry and chocolate arts in Switzerland - the birthplace of milk chocolate.

Set on the shores of Lake Lucerne, with the Swiss Alps a stone’s throw away, this former Grand Hotel is situated at the end of Lucerne’s pedestrian shopping area – as Switzerland’s most popular tourist destination there are plenty of shops, restaurants and activities for time spent outside of the kitchen. As a historic building, our hotel campus offers a unique environment to live and learn, steeped in the heritage of Swiss Hospitality tradition.

The Kitchen Experience
For each class, pastry chef instructors and chocolatiers teach culinary demonstrations in front of the class to explain each technique. Students then practice the techniques learnt during the demonstration at workstations with guidance every step of the way. While a kitchen is a disciplined environment, the teaching style remains approachable and light-hearted. The final Pastry & Chocolate Master Challenge will give you the opportunity to showcase your skills and creativity.
