Culinary Arts Management MA

Recently starring in a reality cookery show in her home country of Malaysia, Emma is all set to make her mark in the competitive culinary arts world after studying at UCB.

She said her time at the University was not only positive because of the unwavering help of her lecturers, but UCB’s encouraging attitude towards international students.

“My experience was fantastic, and I know others feel the same,” she said. “All of the staff are really considerate towards different cultures and religions, so you’re able to feel comfortable, no matter how far away from home you might be.

“Lecturers really encourage students with their studies and work hard to maintain a positive, relaxed atmosphere while they teach. During my dissertation, they were supportive, understanding and a complete inspiration from start to finish.”

She said she chose UCB because of the interesting modules, but also because of the brilliant reputation its College of Food has in the industry.

“Any student thinking of taking this master’s should go ahead and try it,” she said. “It’s one of the best ways to gain the knowledge and hands-on experience to prepare you to make it in this competitive industry.

“Right now, I’m back in Malaysia, having just recorded a reality cookery show as one of 26 contestants in a cheffing competition. Everyone here is really interested in the education and experiences I had at UCB – especially potential employers.

“One piece of careers’ advice I would offer students is to make the most of every element of your course, and use the knowledge and expertise of your lecturers in every way possible, because it won’t be there forever!”
