Depending where you are in the world and what kind of degree you are aiming to get, qualifications asked by the a Culinary school vary. What you do,check their websites, they clearly state the qualifications they ask their aspiring students.Most of them will ask to have at least high school diploma or equivalent, most of them will ask you to be over the legal age (18 years old in most places) or the authorization of your parents/guardian if you are not old enough yet. But there are schools that even ask for previous studies in culinary arts and/or experience (as an apprentice, at least) in a food business.
Things to Consider before choosing a Culinary School
Before deciding to go to culinary institute and choosing a specific place ask yourself if its worth it, and make sure that (if your decision is firm in attending a school) you know you like “The Life”, as we call it (try to get a “stage”, an apprenticeship, before you make the deal).
Yes, it might seem odd that someone that makes a living out of teaching at a culinary institute tells you this, but in all honesty I’ve seen too many kids spend a lot of money and time just to be disappointed about the tough, low pay, long hour life they chose.
In Uganda particularly, there is worrying how much some people spend on culinary arts programs and how little they get paid in the jobs they find after that, surely not something viable to pay back student loans and still make a living out of it.
