Hey, I'm asking on behalf of my bf..

Where is the best culinary art in Malaysia? Both private and government.

What is the job prospect? Is it highly demanded in Malaysia?

If anyone has an experience of taking this course or known someone doing this course, do share the experience..

Thank you so much in advance smile.gif

I have to say, if you're talking about demands in malaysia, nothing can really be regarded as "demanding" There are more lawyers than kacang putih sellers, more engineers than paper lama man. Yet, things like culinary, arts, and music are considered "not demanding" by the majority. But hey, i happen to be in this category too..
If your bf really wants to do this and have enough money, I suggest go to KDU. then maybe transfer to Switzerland or something. Most of my friends who wants to do culinary goes to KDU ^^

I think the tourism industry in malaysia is growing. hence, demands are there for hotels. but i really dunno bout the salary lah.

Why not try taylor's school of hospitality and tourism? and they had just won ""Hospitality Asia Platinum Award for Hospitality School of the Year 2007 - 2008"". go to their website www.taylors.edu.my

I have to agree with the bolded sentences. This kind of industry are always negleted and often been underestimated by people (esp. parents)

How's the facilities? He was thinking of going to either KDU or SEGI~

Is further diploma considered as a degree?

I am a Culinary Arts student from UiTM. I definately would say that it is the 'gold mine' for people like me because I'm interested in joining this area and the paid is well paid. Not to mention that you will get promoted easily.

I'm interested to take this course too.

I've done some comparison between 2 of my top choices, KDU and Taylors. Personally, I think KDU is a better choice (for me) because it has more practical classes than theory. Also, it involves more dessert and pastry compared to Taylors.

As I'm more interested with baking, my choice is pretty obvious.

But one thing bothering me is the course fee.. It is a little too high for my family to afford. My family is not too rich or too poor, but I have many siblings.. So its kinda hard for my parents.

Is it easy to get scholarship for this course in KDU?
Thanks.

Oh btw, is it easy to get internship overseas(western countries)? Or job oppurtunity after I graduated?

i would say taylor's is de best in Malaysia in hospitality and tourism field...it offers practical and theory subjects...i used 2 think tat more practical subject its good..but if u reli think deeper and when u go into de industry..u will found out tat those theories are pretty important if u wanna work in an establishment and get promoted..all de practical stuff ure learning at taylor's is juz de basic and they expect u to take de initiative to develop it urself.. think bout it!haha

both are crucially important IMHO.reading on how to bake a cake doesn't mean that u know to bake a cake..i think in certificate and diploma level practical is more important as this job is more hands on that on paper only.as u go up maybe in degree maybe more theories will since u have gain experiences from ur practical.But this is my view... tho...

anyone ask bout cilantro or know anyone enrolled?thinking of going there... wanna know how much the fee and their academic planner... maybe i'll email them later see whether got respond or not...
