  1. Hi… I’m from Pakistan and looking for bachelor’s degree in culinary for my daughter. Would appreciate if you can walk me through the process how to apply and fee structure, scholarship. Also is the teaching medium English?

    1. Hi,
      There are two ways to study an undergraduate¬†culinary arts programme in Germany;1. Bachelor’s degree of three years in a public university for free – no tuition fees charged. If your daughter has yet to study an international curriculum like Cambridge or an American high school, she must attend a foundation year course at a Studienkolleg in Germany.
      Suppose you want the foundation programme and language learning in one year and at an institution that takes care of her during this one year. In that case, I suggest an all-in-one package that covers tuition fees, furnished hotel accommodation, monthly food allowance, health insurance, all study materials, and exam fees for the one-year program.
      It costs 25,200.EUR. This includes the blocked account.
      Studying in English is possible in a private university where she has to pay tuition fees starting with the foundation course and the entire three years degree course.
      The only and most preferred economic route is a vocational course where the student needs to learn the German language at home and achieve B2-level communication skills. 
      The vocational programme called Ausbildung in culinary arts doesn’t attract tuition fees, whereas the company provides¬†a monthly stipend to the attendee for the entire duration.¬†
      No blocked account require here while applying for a visa. 
      I charge 1000.EUR to provide my services that starts helping with the application,. look for the programme providers and apply for the applicants.
      Hope it helps.

      Kindest regards

    1. Dear Rohit,

      If you wish to study for a master’s degree in hotel management or culinary arts at a private university in Germany is available in English. Still, to study for free in public universities, the course is offered in German.

      That will help you as you can apply for a job once you know German. You may also consider applying for a direct job after working a couple of years in the relevant field and at least B1-level communication skills in German.

    Good day

    I am currently looking to do a career change to the culinary arts. I have a degree in architecture but I want to pursue the culinary field. I am from Kingston Jamaica, and I do not have a lot of money to pursue the field.

    Are there any places I can look at that provide someone in my position a chance to study free of cost and if so, if there an age limit?
