International Students

“Chef Academy is accredited at Premier status by the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC) for its commendable areas of operation. ASIC is an independent body which provides accreditation services for independent, further and higher education colleges.

ASIC accreditation helps students and parents make better informed decisions. They also help schools, colleges, universities, training providers and distance education providers to acknowledge they are a part of an international student body and high quality institution.”

Over the past few years the demand for training to become a professional chef has never been higher. To train in London is a no-brainer, with the presence of many fine dining and Michelin Starred restaurants, there are numerous opportunities for students all around the world. Professional chef training abroad can expand your personal horizons and enable independent development. Not only that but you can enlarge your circle of international friends whilst gaining valuable experience to begin your professional chef career. However, before making a decision, consider the following:

  • Why study in London?
  • Will my qualifications be recognised?
  • How much are the tuition fees?
  • How do I apply for courses with the Chef Academy London?
  • When should I apply?
  • Short Term Student Visas

Why Study in London?

London is a world class city, famous for its vibrancy and cosmopolitan nature. Chef Academy is based in the heart of London. This is a magnificent place to train inside some of the city’s most famous Restaurants. 

Will my qualifications be recognised?

Chef Academy London will issue a diploma upon the successful completion of the course. The diploma is also accredited by ASIC UK. Our diploma is very well recognised in the professional culinary world. 

How much are the tuition fees?

The tuition fees differ depending on the course. Please refer to individual courses for further details. 

How do I apply for courses with the Chef Academy?

Once you have decided on a course of study, you can submit an application form which can be downloaded from the website or you can request one directly from us. 

When should I apply?

If you require a Visa, we recommend you begin your application as soon as possible. This is so we can get you enrolled for the date you wish to begin. This will vary from one country to another so we recommend checking with one of our team members about availability and enrollment requirements. 

Short Term Student Visas

Chef Academy London accepts international students. Foreign students will need to apply for a short term study visa. Chef Academy will provide a letter to support your Visa application upon full payment of the course fees.

Finances: Do ensure you have the funds available to pay for the full course fees but also living costs required during the duration of your course. After all, London is not the cheapest city to live in.

Accommodation: We can assist you with accommodation within a reasonable distance from your place of training. Alternatively you are free to make arrangements personally.

Insurance: We recommend that you take out insurance for yourself whilst you are here.
