Bachelors in Food and Beverage Studies. Bachelor in Culinary Arts Management The IFT's BA Culinary Arts Programme is new programme designed with the modern hospitality professional in mind. The first cohort of students joined the 4-year course in September 2011 and will graduate in 2015. Whether they intend to pursue a career as a culinary chef; a front of house manager; or an all-round culinary professional, the 4-year course draws on a wide experiential base of proven lecturers and skilled craft technicians. With worldwide experience ranging from 3,4 and 5 star hotels to Michelin restaurants to event venues and the like, the IFT draws on this vast knowledge base to deliver a well-rounded broad-based foundation from which the students can flourish. With this in mind the IFT also promotes links and continually builds bridges with industry in an effort to provide much needed professionals with the potential to practice their craft in some of the finest establishments around the world – and indeed many IFT alumni are in fact doing just that.

In this regard the IFT's 4 year culinary arts degree course is dedicated to providing students... [-]
