About the Course

Fire Up Your Passion for the Food and Beverage Business

Does starting your own restaurant or café appeal to you? Or do you want a career in the food and beverage (F&B) industry? Then our Diploma in Food & Beverage Business is the key ingredient for your successful future.

You will gain a firm foundation in F&B business fundamentals, before branching out to specialise in F&B management or the culinary arts. Learn about restaurant operations, food logistics and menu planning if you specialise in F&B Management. And if the culinary arts is more your thing, you will train under experienced chefs and gain first-hand knowledge in food preparation, nutritional science, food safety and hygiene.

You’ll get real-world training with our Teaching Enterprise Project (TEP) attachments. We have an onsite training restaurant, L'Rez, and a café, The Upper Room, where you will gain a variety of F&B-related work experience. These include working under and being mentored by skilled lecturer chefs at L'Rez or handcrafting your own beverage creation at The Upper Room. Meanwhile, Culinary Arts students will try their hand at creating their own culinary works of art at the well-equipped kitchen of L’Rez.
