Paul Bocuse welcomes
its 15th promotion

Each year, Institut Paul Bocuse welcomes the best students part of the Alliance network for one semester. This program allows them to specialised in Hospitality and Culinary Arts Management through French culture. A total of 52 international students from 13 partner schools were selected.

To constitute this 15th promotion, 41 have chosen the Advanced Culinary Arts program and 11 the Hospitality & Food Service program. Trained by our chefs and professionals, they will spend 14 intensive weeks at the Institut Paul Bocuse.

This is an opportunity for them to learn new gastronomy culinary techniques, discover the French know-how while sharing their own specific food cultures and habits. It is also a chance to open up their mind to the challenges of global tourism and to live an incredible human adventure.

This year, students will challenge themselves during two key events. They will test their creativity at the International Street Food Challenge. An event where students have to create a whole concept: from the settings to the culinary part by combining their culture with French cuisine. They will also hold the Cuisine du Monde cocktail where each nationality will be featured.

Thanks to their training within our application restaurant “Experience”, their theoretical and practical courses, the discovery of Lyon and the strong ties between students they will leave this experience enriched both professionally and personally.

A genuine international school, Institut Paul Bocuse welcomes 1,000 students from 55 nationalities across 10 campuses and offers 100% English courses.

Cultural diversity is a daily reality, so our students must strengthen their international perspectives. That’s why we provide them a wide range of opportunities, including academic exchanges, study abroad programmes and international business placements.

During the 2nd or 3rd year of the Bachelor degree, or at the end of the Master’s degree, our students have the opportunity to study abroad in one of our 20 partner schools based in 15 different countries. It is the chance for them to practice a new language on a daily basis, increase their employability and discover other ways of working.
