What makes us different?

1. Innovative approach

The objective of this Bachelor's Degree is to train professionals specialized in culinary techniques, but also qualified to direct and manage a restaurant anywhere in the world.

It is not just about training the most innovative and advanced chefs, but also about guaranteeing the best training in professional management for the gastronomic and catering sector. That is why this is the only official Bachelor's Degree that combines haute cuisine with management and mixes the key ingredients of food with the techniques to generate the most profitable gastronomic business. Because nowadays great chefs are also a brand, right?

2. To be the best you have to train with the best

At an academic level, the program is based on the following basic pillars of knowledge:

  • Pilar one: Gastronomy.
    It encompasses all skills on food product and culinary techniques. Learning everything about the nature of food and how to apply the best cooking techniques at all times, for each service, for each style, for each project. That implies (yes) stepping into the kitchen, but also entering the chemistry and nutrition laboratories. This means getting your hands dirty and trying again and again what you learn every week. If you think that gastronomy is learned only by studying, this degree is not for you. Our way of understanding gastronomy is by making it and doing it for real. This means that, for example, from what a student pays as academic fees, we invest about 2,000 euros on average every year for the purchase of raw materials that he/she will need to prepare the dishes, so that they can make a mistake cooking, for instance, with most expensive tuna in the world, or perhaps would you prefer to cook it for the first time when customers are already waiting at the table? By the way, do you think that in all universities you learn to cook like this? Take a look around, because you will discover that the answer is no. You might just discover that in some universities gastronomy is based primarily on classrooms and paper notes. We think that to be the best you can only learn by working with the best from the beginning. The best on origin and food traceability, the best on food safety, the best on gastronomic innovation, the best on nutrition and health.
  • Pillar two: Business Management.
    In this Bachelor's Degree you will learn management and strategic direction with a practical approach applied to catering companies. We say companies because we do not just talk about restaurants, right? Catering companies refer also to hotel chains, cruise ships, catering services... and the food industry that is always launching new prepared food products, a market trend that is growing exponentially. A growing sector that not only needs chefs and labor, it also needs business and brains.
  • Pillar three: Languages.
    Amidst the rise of international cuisine, you cannot be a professional in the sector without a good level of specialized English. That is why we offer complementary English sessions for level improvement, subjects on specific English within the program and even the possibility of studying most of the first year entirely in English. You choose, but do not forget that you cannot stop choosing to have the right professional English skills.
  • Pillar Four: Creativity.
    This Bachelor's Degree integrates subjects related to creativity, design and artistic trends. This knowledge will give the student the ability to generate complete gastronomic experiences through the design of spaces, the creation of events and the generation of emotions. Because in a way, gastronomy is also an art, and art must move us, right?
  • Pillar five: Specialize or be just like everyone else

The program includes the following specialization itineraries:

Executive Chef Innovation - Research in Gastronomy
This itinerary teaches the most innovative culinary techniques. You will learn about new gastronomic trends and be initiated in the field of research. The purpose is for the student to reach the highest culinary level, knowing how to adapt to culinary trends and applying creative and research processes in the kitchen. An itinerary that trains you to be one of the best gastronomy professionals.
Gastronomic Business Food & Beverage
With this itinerary, students acquire advanced skills in the field of management in order to work as Manager or Food and Beverages Director. A highly specialized profession to manage the F&B department of large catering and tourism companies. An itinerary that trains you to be one of the best food management professionals.

3. Avant-garde facilities.

Without avant-garde facilities you cannot study avant-garde cuisine. That is why all the practical part of this degree takes place at GASMA Gastronomy & Culinary Management Campus. GASMA is located at only 5 minutes from our University in Castellón. Its facilities are considered by many to be the best for gastronomy training in all southern Europe. In fact, specialization programs for professionals around the world take place at GASMA and it is not uncommon to meet a chef with two or three Michelin stars teaching a Masterclass during any other week of the course. From the first year, students of this Bachelor's Degree develop hours and hours of practical sessions in these unique facilities. Because (as we have already said) for us and for GASMA the only way to learn gastronomy is by doing gastronomy. You can get to know GASMA Gastronomy & Culinary Management Campus better at this link.

4. Profession in the classroom.

To be a good professional of gastronomy (one of the best) you must be in contact with the best professionals in the sector, it seems logical does it not? That is why the best kitchen professionals collaborate in the teaching methodology of this degree. Michelin star chefs and other international award winners teach intensification seminars, develop practical workshops, and have been involved in the development of the contents and techniques of all subjects. Since cooking is a contact profession, it is good to be in contact with the best from day one.

5. International vocation.

In your day to day at CEU Cardenal Herrera University you will be surrounded by students who come from more than 70 countries and this will be a unique experience for you. This Bachelor's Degree is studied by young people of more than 35 different nationalities. In fact, more than 75% of students in this degree are international, young people who come from countries in Europe, America, Africa and Asia to study with us. That is why if you study Gastronomy at CEU and with GASMA Gastronomy & Culinary Management Campus you already know that a good part of your classmates will be from here and there and from that country that you did not even know. Of course they will all have something in common: the passion to be the best internationally, do you feel that passion?

By the way, you better have a good suitcase because some of the regulated or voluntary practical classes we offer are in restaurants around the world. You better start thinking globally because Harvard Business Publishing® has authorized the use of its materials and case studies in this title.

SICUE

The SICUE Program is an exchange scheme between Spanish universities and not a grant. It is overseen by Spain’s Ministry of Education and run by the Spain university rectors’ association, the Conferencia de Rectores de las Universidades Españolas (CRUE)

This exchange scheme enables students to undertake part of their studies at another Spanish university, with guarantees that the time spent studying there and the results achieved will be recognized by the home university. No funding is available for the SICUE programme.

This programme makes it possible for students to experience different teaching systems, including those concerning practical training, as well as the different social and cultural contexts of other regions and cities in Spain.

Application

February 2021: publication of the 2021/2022 call.

Requirements

Students can request an exchange with universities with which CEU UCH has a bilateral agreement, if they fulfil the following requirement:

Undergraduates: to have been awarded at least 45 credits and to be enrolled on at least 30 more.

The credit requirement must have been met on 30th September of this academic year, with the academic year prior to the SICUE mobility programme taking place being taken into account for compliance with requirements.

  • Master’s and doctoral programmes are not eligible for the SICUE programme.
  • The stay at the host university may be for half an academic year (3, 4, 5 or 6 months depending on the organization of the host university’s academic year) or a complete academic year.
  • A complete academic year entails enrolling on at least 45 credits and half an academic year entails a minimum of 24 credits.
  • Failed courses: on the condition that this does not contravene the home university’s internal regulations, and subject to the approval of the academic coordinator, the student may include in the learning agreement one, and only one, course that he or she has previously failed.
  • Once the student has arrived and made contact with the host university, the student must send back the arrival certificate.

For financial purposes, the student continues to be a CEU Cardenal Herrera student, meaning that he or she must enrol at the CEU Cardenal Herrera University when the enrolment period opens, and must continue to pay the tuition fees to the University. The student is exempt from paying fees at the host institution. No funding is available for the SICUE programme.

The student must enrol at the CEU Cardenal Herrera University when the enrolment period opens, even though they are to undertake a stay at another university.

Students must put their choices in order of preference, choosing a maximum of three options.

PLEASE NOTE: The selected options for host universities and the order of preference may not be modified once the deadline for applications has passed, nor can any appeal be made in this respect.
