The Hotel Management - Culinary Arts programme from VIVES University of Applied Sciences offers a firm base of classes in management, ICT, communication and teamwork. On top of that, you will get specific practical and theoretical courses that will lead to a bright future as a chef in a renowned restaurant.


If you have a passion for restaurants and cooking, the Hotel Management - Culinary Arts programme from VIVES University of Applied Sciences is something right up your alley. If you don’t have a degree in cooking, we organise a summer school, to prepare you for all practical kitchen courses. All practical courses take place in the former Michelin 3-star restaurant De Karmeliet, in the centre of the historical city of Bruges. Led by Geert Van Hecke, the renowned chef of De Karmeliet, you will get high level kitchen courses, given by lecturers of Hotelschool Ter Duinen.

Direct contact with people in the field is an essential part of the bachelor programme. In the first and second year of the programme, you will run restaurant De Karmeliet for several months. You will cook for external guests and manage the restaurant on a high level. In your third year, you will do an 18­ weeks traineeship in an internationally renowned gourmet restaurant.

Why Enrol for This Programme?

We have deliberately opted for a semester system of twelve course weeks per semester rather than shorter modules. We believe this gives students more time to process certain topics and avoids continuous exam pressure.

The training has a strong practical focus and therefore fits in seamlessly with professional life. The development of social skills also receives a lot of attention through group work and presentations. Very interesting are the projects in which you will participate. In the project "Café CuiZien" you will design a hospitality business around a certain theme. In this project both economic and hospitality subjects are put into practice. You will work in groups and present your work to a jury consisting of teachers and various hospitalitymanagers, who are part of the advisory board of the program.

A special feature of these projects is that the hospitality specific, business economic and linguistic aspects are integrated. In other words, you bring all aspects of the program together into one whole, just like in reality.

There is a structured offer of differentiation activities for many subjects. This ranges from introductory tests or non-binding trial exams to differentiation sessions before or after the lesson in smaller groups. Besides following various sessions about the right study method, an individual appointment with the tutor to discuss your study method is also possible. During the inspection, the course in the field of tutoring scored a seldom seen "Excellent".
