Why Culinary Arts ?

Studying Culinary Arts in GMIT, within any of our related courses will allow you develop an understanding of the science behind food and the importance of creating good food for our planet, our health and nutrition.   

You will learn about food sustainability and how you can be a part of a growing movement of culinary professionals working for the betterment of food production and service.    You will learn how to develop communication and leadership skills for future management roles as well as core technical skills required in the culinary world.   

Our culinary students have the opportunity to participate in masterclasses with some of the world’s leading Michelin star chefs and work very closely with many of Ireland’s top culinary professionals. 

Interactive learning and field trips are a key feature of our learning environment and this coupled with paid work placements gives our students a distinct advantage for future well paid employment opportunities. ​
