Choosing a swedish school

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi there,

 

I need some guidance about this matter. The topics already in this forum are obsolete and so the URLs... so didn't help really. 

 

I'm looking forward to become a swedish citizen (I'm already an EU citizen), and I would like to join a culinary school. I don't care what area but would be better in Stockholm. Since I can't speak swedish yet, do you know about any school teaching in english? I'm learning swedish at the moment, but I doubt having the level to speak it soon enough. 

 

Thanks!

In Sweden , i would attempt a culinary apprenticeship considering continental europe doesnt really go by culinary schools, they have them, but its more of a hobby kind of institution. 

 

Completing an apprencticeship will give you a diploma/certificate that will verify you are a cook and completed your apprenticeship. 

Not only that but it can be more valuable on a resume. 

 

The apprenticeship is an agreement made by the you , the restaurant and the goverment so you know its serious. 

Im pretty sure other members ( mainly foodpump who gave me some info ) have more details. 

 

Now if you actually want to go to a culinary school , their is one that has crossed my mine a few months ago , which is the Culinary Arts Academy of Switzerland , i dont know how good it is , but their was a Brazilian particpant in the Bocos D´or who graudtaed there. 

He actually lives pretty close to me though i have never met him in person. 

 

Heres the link....http://www.culinaryarts.ch/

 

P.S. most who do apprenticeships start at 16 , but im sure you can do them even if you are older.

Swedish is a mouthful, 8 years here and I still stumble around in Swedish. Are you doing sfi or something like sas like at folkuniverset. Im in the göteborg area and dont know of any gymnasiam the does the restaurang trades around here in english but Swedes are very accomadating some itt may be possible to work something out in english. Also being that you are an eu citezen youshould be able to go to school like any swedish citezen but get living grants/loans from you home country as long as your registered and have your all powerful personal number, the system for education is a bit different here but good. Im in the process of learning more about it now since one of my kids will start gymnasium nest year.
