Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand Welcomes a New Batch of Degree Students

A new cohort of freshmen degree students joins  the Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business programme.

The long wait for this group of learners ended when they finally commenced the Bachelor of Culinary Arts and Business programme on the 8th August 2022. Majority of these students waited for more than two years due to the New Zealand border closure.

Prior to New Zealand border reopening in July 31, 2022, the government announced a new cohort of up to 5,000  international students to enter New Zealand as a border exception. This group of students were lucky enough to be nominated to enter New Zealand and undertake their studies.

Despite the tight timing and tedious process of getting nominated and obtaining their student visas, these learners did not give up their dreams study in New Zealand.

While waiting for the New Zealand border to open, half of these learners undertook online studies delivered by Le Cordon Bleu Australia through a Cross-Institutional arrangement between Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand campus and Australia campus. Credits earned from their online studies contributed towards their degree studies in New Zealand campus.

The degree lecturers are pleased to welcome such vibrant, passionate, and eager to learn group of students. Third week into the programme, the degree lecturers wasted no time in enriching the minds of these learners and honing their customer service skills in Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand training restaurant during the recent Du Bleu Au Vert Five Course Dinner Degustation. With the help of second year degree students, these group of learners contributed significantly in delivering an amazing brasserie service.
