Based on the Mondragon Unibertsitatea educational model, the Basque Culinary Centre model focuses on students and their personal, social and professional training. An eminently practical model based on skills that will be required in your future professional life.

In the Gastronomy and Culinary Arts Degree you will learn by doing. Throughout the degree, you will work as part of a team to carry out and manage real projects that will allow you to know first-hand the reality of your profession and to acquire professional experience at the same time as you carry out your studies.

We value the knowledge, skills and attitude of each person pursuing the degree within an interdisciplinary approach that promotes the relationship between different areas of knowledge.

This process allows a continuous and overall evaluation, which we carry out through a solid communicative relationship between teachers and students.

  • Learning by doing.
  • Teamwork.
  • Realising and conducting real projects.
  • Encouraging entrepreneurship.
  • Promoting autonomy and decision making.
  • Developing communication and people skills

Each term you will be asked to carry out a practical project with your team. You will have to apply the knowledge acquired, but also probe and search for information to find the concepts you need to learn in order to find the most suitable solution to the task set.

Advantages of project-based learning

Taking the lead in your learning

Projects that are 100% real

You will get to know the realities of your future profession and work hand in hand with companies from different sectors.


Project Manager

Throughout the Degree course you will have the help of a professional who will help you to solve the challenge or problem.

We get results

You will acquire a high level of knowledge, but we also want you to be able to apply it to real projects.
