Excerpted from: http://www.usastudyguide.com/cooking-sch... Culinary school and cooking school program length Each culinary school offers different kinds of culinary programs, and the culinary arts program lengths vary. Top culinary arts school programs can range anywhere from a few months to 4 or 5 years. The most common culinary arts degrees awarded are the associate degree in culinary arts and the bachelor degree in culinary arts. The culinary arts associate degree can take anywhere from 9 months to 2 years to complete. The Bachelor degree in culinary arts generally takes 3 - years to complete. Obviously, the shorter the culinary arts course length, the more likely it will prepare you for an entry-level culinary position. Bachelor degrees in culinary arts offered by cooking schools prepare you for eventual management positions. Affordability of cooking school or culinary school tui more

Culinary schools provide the culinary education at a very reasonable cost. The fees structure of these schools is flexible and depends upon the type of programs and degrees. These schools offer the scholarship programs and also accept the fees in installments. The duration of the classes depend upon the courses. Culinary schools programs include bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and diploma & certification programs.



Well, that really depends on a number of factors. Student loans are always an option, but my guess is that culinary school could cost any where up between 5-10 lakhs per course. Of course, a number of factors come into play here- hostel fee, internships, course instruction etc. What you need to try and decide is if you're getting value for what you're paying for culinary school. One such college is AIMS Bangalore which offers a bachelors in culinary arts, a dual degree option in association with ALMA, Italy which is the world’s leading international educational and training centre for Italian Cuisine. So, if you ask me, I'm getting more than my money's worth through that and I'm not sure many institutes in India would give me the edge AIMS would so that's also something to consider.
