Everyone at the Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts campus was so welcoming – it felt like a family. I also felt like everyone here wants you to understand the industry and to really learn the things you come here to learn. You’re not just another number here. They care about you as a student.

International Students

Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts cannot provide F1 student visas. International students who have the ability to remain in the country without a student visa may apply. Due to the short length of some of our programs, international students may find that our courses are a more feasible option.

In the case of mental or physical disability, each application is assessed on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the demanding physical and mental nature of cooking.
