Admissions are generally open to high school graduates (you must be 18 years old by the program start date). Candidates with previous training in cuisine, pastry or restaurant management should consult us before applying to determine eligibility for the Congusto’s Program (Held in English).
Although Italian language skills are not required, knowledge of the language will greatly ease participants’ settling in Milano and their educational experience and we strongly recommend that accepted candidates start to learn Italian before the program. Participants in these programs will be required to attend Italian language courses and some courses will be taught in Italian (with translation).
