• Advanced Professional Culinary Arts

A long term vocational culinary education, designed to reinforce continuous learning as well as to provide an advanced skills set, comprises 3 terms of 4 months each, totaling 12 months. Candidates between 18-40 years of age can apply. The program follows the educational content and system of City & Guilds, the leading international vocational education accreditation agency. The first 4 months long term takes place in MSA's professional kitchens. The second term divides the learning process between the school and industry where students study 3 days at MSA to improve their skills and experience and complete an "on-the-job" training at an industrial kitchen for 3 days every week. Students complete the last 4 months as part of their mandatory culinary internship at a professional establishment determined by MSA. The program offers the Advanced City & Guilds diploma, a certificate of the mandatory hygiene education, HACCP certificate and a graduation certificate approved by the Ministry of Education.
