At Top Toques Institute of Culinary Excellence, we are committed to helping people improve their lives through high-quality education and professional training programs for careers in culinary arts. Our professional programs are all centred on hands-on experience and developing the technical skills necessary to succeed in the food service industry upon graduation. We measure our success in the exemplary employment rates among our graduates, with many of our graduates walking into great jobs as soon as they graduate.
One aspect that contributes to the success of our graduates is our admissions process. During the admissions process, we aim to enroll only those students we are confident we can train and place. We recognize that starting a new career is a huge decision and one that not everyone is prepared to make. That’s why our admissions process consists of three steps, all of which are designed to help you, and us, make the right decision for your future.
Meeting potential students in person is a great way for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We invite all prospective students to visit our campus, meet other students and instructors, tour our facilities, and talk with an admissions officer about your aspirations and plans. This visit allows you to get a feel for the campus and learn more about the college. It is a great opportunity to ask us all the questions you may have before you make a decision whether to enrol at our school. If you need more time to make a decision, we’re always happy to schedule a second appointment before you apply.
Our application process is relatively similar to that of other colleges. You will complete an online application that requires work and education history, as well as why you are interested in attending culinary school. Enrolment in our culinary programs is limited, so please apply for admission as soon as possible in order to obtain acceptance into the program before our next start date. Simply fill out the paperwork and pay an application fee to complete your application.
Once you complete your application and the entrance examination is evaluated (if applicable), you will meet with the director of the program to determine financial arrangements. We recognize that many students must make financial sacrifices to accomplish career goals, often taking on debt or other financial burdens to pay for education. We are committed to making this process as stress-free as possible. We assist with determining the right combination of down payment, payment plans, educational loans, or other sources of funding to help secure your attendance in our program.
Once these three steps are complete, you will be accepted for the class start date of your choosing.
