About the course
What can I expect out of this qualification?
The Bachelor of Culinary Arts programme allows tauira to learn in a creative, flexible and collaborative environment
within a culture that promotes and supports culinary driven real-world problem solving. Specifically,
the programme aims to equip tauira with the tools, techniques and competence required to work in
their chosen career path within the extremely broad field of the professional culinary arts. The
whole model is cognisant of the fact that the culinary sector is currently re-evaluating its practices
and product offerings as a result of Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations, and disruptions brought about by
the global pandemic, and climate change.
Graduates will be able to demonstrate professional competency, specialised technical knowledge,
agile and adaptive design processes, and make a valuable contribution to the direction and
advancement of the culinary industries and food communities within Aotearoa me Te Wai Pounamu.
