Duration: 2 months + 1-month internship
"Bakery Made in France" is a short, intensive program aimed at firsttime students and people changing careers.
This 2-month program focuses on the fundamentals of French baking. It allows students to draw inspiration from the skills and know-how of some of the biggest names in the French bakery sector, and to quickly gain a thorough understanding of bread baking and sales.
With 8 specific modules, the intensive program "Bakery Made in France" enables our students to learn the essential techniques at the foundation of French baking: daily bakery products, traditional French breads, speciality breads, leavened and puff pastries. Each student must be able to bake products meeting very high standards.
Thanks to our unique student-centered approach, 85% of the required skills will be learned through hands-on training in dedicated bakery labs. The Institut provides appropriate support for the students to secure the required onemonth internship in a French bakery. There are also opportunities for field trips to bakeries.
Opening in January 2020.
This program is open to candidates with strong motivation and to people with previous work experience (job seekers, those changing careers...).
An application request must be made through the website. Within the next 48 hours, the candidate will receive an invitation for an interview, either in person or video-conference (Skype). The candidate will be informed about the results following the interview.
A registration form will be sent to successful applicants. The form must be filled and returned to Institut Culinaire de France within 30 days, along with required documentation.
Once his admission is confirmed, the candidate will be issued an acceptance letter. This letter is required for his visa application in the French consulate in the applicant’s respective country. According to French law, any stay longer than 90 days requires a long-term visa. However, depending on his nationality, a visa may be required for any length of stay. This procedure might take a considerable amount of time. Therefore, we advise the future students to start their visa application upon the receipt of their acceptance letter.
