Why should I choose this course?

  • University College Birmingham has an international reputation for the quality of its professional cookery courses
  • We have revised the content of this popular course to allow you to reach Level 3 in two years rather three
  • The new-look course allows you to get a job or progress to a university degree much earlier, saving you a valuable year at an important stage of your career
  • The course has been developed to provide a more hands-on approach with more time developing your kitchen skills
  • Although the majority of students will take the Level 2/Level 3 diploma, you can still take the Level 1 diploma if you think you might need additional support to get you on your way.*
