The necessary documents to apply for a course are the following:

Application form

The application form and the rest of the documents must be sent to the
Admission Department: admisionescordonbleu@ufv.es

The student can apply for one of the existing annual calls and see our actual schedules.

It is an essential prerequisite for students whose mother tongue is different from Spanish or English, to prove appropriate writing and speaking skills in Spanish/English language because all the courses will be taught in Spanish with English translation. The School may require a B2 Level (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, teaching, assessment - CEFR) in Spanish/English language if they seem it appropriate.

Admission Process

Step 1: Personal interview

Once the student application form is received, the School will assess it and will schedule an interview with the student. Applicants who do not live in Madrid may have a phone or Skype interview.

Step 2: Admission notification

The School will notify the students their admission by letter. This admission letter and the attached documents are essential to continue with the student enrolment process in the School.

Step 3: Place reservation

Students who have been admitted must reserve a place if they do not want to lose their right to enrol. We recommend Flywire as the preferred payment partner, offering you with an easy and secure method of sending international payments via telegraphic transfer or credit card in your home currency, ensuring best price guaranteed and no unexpected bank fees.
Find our more about making payments with Flywire in this video.
They may pay for the reservation of their place within 10 days following the date of their admission letter. The student must send the tuition fee proof of payment to admisionescordonbleu@ufv.es.

If the reservation amount is not paid within 10 days following the date of their admission letter, the student will not have a granted place in the School.

Step 4: School enrolment

When the place reservation has been paid for, the student will be sent all the necessary information to enrol in the School. Such documents must be completed, signed and sent to the School along with the payment of the rest of the tuition fee at least 8 weeks before the beginning of the course. Only students that have fully paid the tuition fee before the set deadline may enrol in the School and start the classes.

In case of vacancies, students can apply for a course 8 weeks before the beginning of the course. In that event, the admission procedure and the payment deadline will be those established by the School.

Certificate of Enrolment

When all the enrolment documents and the proof of payment have been received, the School will send the 'Certificate of Enrolment' to the student. This document certifies the student enrolment in the School and is necessary to apply for a student visa.

To start their classes, international students who do not live in the European Union must apply for a student visa in the Consulate or Embassy of their countries of origin showing their 'Enrolment Letter' along with the rest of the documents the Consulate may require. Students who need a visa are advised to fully pay the course programme 2 or 3 months before the beginning of the classes to avoid problems with the visa period of granting

Equipment and uniform

All the students who are taking one of Le Cordon Bleu courses for the first time will be provided two complete uniforms, a knife kit and utensils that are necessary for the development of the classes as well as a folder with each course recipes.
