Autumn and Winter Programmes 2020
Le Cordon Bleu London


Another term is nearly upon us, and there are plenty of opportunities to start your studies at Le Cordon Bleu London this autumn or winter. Whether you’re eager to start as soon as possible, or are thinking about plans for the new year, Le Cordon Bleu has a wide range of programmes starting in September and January.

The Grand Diplôme® is a programme which encompasses both the Diplôme de Cuisine and Diplôme de Pâtisserie, providing a well-rounded set of culinary skills. The diplomas are split into 3 certificate levels: Basic, Intermediate and Superior, each taking 3 months to complete. These can be studied over 9 months, or we have an intensive option allowing completion in just 6 months. This was previously only available in the summer term, but new for 2021, the intensive diploma option will be available to start in January.

If you’re looking for a more flexible way to study, you can choose to sign up just for the Basic Certificate levels and complete the other certificates later. This means that, if you can’t commit to the 6 or 9 months in one go, you can still achieve your diploma, but take your time in doing so. It is however worth noting that the price is reduced when signing up for a full diploma.

Le Cordon Bleu London also offers specialist programmes, focussing on specific areas of the culinary arts. For example, if your dream is to become a master baker, our Diplôme de Boulangerie will teach you the classical and practical skills of artisan baking, kitchen management, and gastronomy. This can also be studied alongside the Diplôme de Pâtisserie.

Although Le Cordon Bleu is renowned for teaching classical culinary techniques and dishes, the institute is constantly innovating and applying their traditional methods to modern food trends and industry standards. This is demonstrated in some of the newer programmes, such as the Diploma in Plant Based Culinary Arts, which provides all of the knowledge and expertise to create beautiful dishes completely free from animal products.

In addition to teaching the culinary arts, Le Cordon Bleu also offers a comprehensive wine programme. The Diploma in Wine, Gastronomy and Management provides an education in the world of wine, with an in-depth knowledge of wine and gastronomy as well as marketing and wine business management.

For those interested in simply having a taste of the culinary arts, there is an extensive range of short courses and master classes available throughout the year, such as the Creative Vegetables: Vegetarian Cooking Class or Festive Wine Workshop. These shorter courses have been developed to provide an option for those who must be time or budget conscious, but still wish to learn some new culinary skills.

Whatever route you choose with Le Cordon Bleu London, it is sure to be a memorable and enhancing experience. Under the tutelage of Le Cordon Bleu's Master Chefs, and surrounded by fellow culinary passionates, you will feel in your element and leave with invaluable skills and knowledge to apply in your professional or personal life.
