Australia is a unique and diverse country in every way. Great food and wine, stunning coastlines, a vast outback, dramatic scenery, iconic attractions, unique wildlife and welcoming people make it an exciting place to live, study and work.
Despite having a population of just 23 million, Australia has the highest number of international students in the world, behind only the United Kingdom and the United States. Students decide to study in Australia because of its wonderfully diverse culture, population, climate, geography and history. They also choose Australia because the country has five of the 30 best cities in the world for students based on student mix, affordability, quality of life and employer activity.
Each year approximately 1400 students from over 20 countries choose to study with Le Cordon Bleu Australia at its campuses in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Students love the relaxed, cosmopolitan nature of these cities and the opportunity to work in world-class businesses located in iconic tourism destinations.
Le Cordon Bleu Australia has state-of-the-art campuses in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
Adelaide is a vibrant city of just over one million people. It has a sense of space and freedom that actively encourages true indulgence and immersion in its highly celebrated food, wine and arts culture.
Melbourne is all about lifestyle. Located in the south-east corner of Australia, it is a welcoming, outgoing and confident city. It is a reflection on the generous and inclusive spirit of its socially and culturally diverse population.
Located on Australia’s east coast Sydney is surrounded by the magnificent Sydney Harbour, home to the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. It is a mecca of fabulous cultural, leisure, food, wine and shopping experiences.
Through the combination of my work experience, the hands-on components and detailed theory that Le Cordon Bleu offers in gastronomic practise, communication skills, financial principles, food product development, entrepreneurial management skills and more, I have been provided an exclusive opportunity to fulfill my goal to open a small business showcasing the culinary delights from countries I have visited and dream of visiting, all using the excellence and variety of local South Australian produce.
As soon as we filmed our MasterChef Australia episode inside Le Cordon Bleu with Chef Andre Sandison, I knew I wanted to study there. I loved the support, knowledge and facilities on offer and couldn't wait to be a part of such a fantastic learning environment.
What I enjoyed the most about my course was the practical side because I’m artistic and creative and eventually I want to open my own pâtisserie.
I realised I wanted to be part of the food industry when I discovered the beauty of making homemade marshmallows. It was mesmerising to see that my own two hands were able to create such a technical candy. Personally I see art in every form. Art has played an important role in my life and food is a way that I can express myself instead in paper form. I see my life heading towards the food industry because I am passionate about food and I want my life to revolve around it so that I can proudly say that I love my job and all it offers.
The Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism has strengthened my appreciation for food and wine and has given me the opportunity to study a range of topics from the history of gastronomy through to destination marketing. The program has allowed me to build on my existing knowledge and qualifications and has provided me with the foundation for an exciting and rewarding career in gastronomic tourism.
The most important things I learned at Le Cordon Bleu were the skills in Pâtisserie and how to work efficiently as a team.
Education is the beginning but never the end. Pursuing my Master of Gastronomic Tourism at Le Cordon Bleu is expanding my knowledge and my opportunities for the future. This scholarship ensures that I can keep growing as professional.

I’ve been lucky to travel quite a lot and that has made me want to offer those experiences to others, share that dream.
