I have been with Imperium College for two years now. During the duration of my diploma, the lecturers have provided with useful information and guidance.

I’ve also gained experience from the events held at the college. I was part of the culinary team to provide catering services at such events.

Moreover, my semesters ran smoothly because of the dedication of the department’s coordinator.

Upon completing my diploma, I had the opportunity to intern at Le Meridien, Kuala Lumpur.

This was only possible with the assistance provided by my lecturers and the coordinator of the culinary department.

Loke Yen-Li

Commis, Ebisu, Pavillion Hotel

I obtained more skills, knowledge, and experience than I ever imagined possible from the Diploma in Culinary Arts at the Imperium International College. It is not only provided me with the knowledge required to understand how to create a food product, but also the skills to evaluate the supporting factor in creating a food product due to practical class and theory class in the field.

It also provided me with the opportunity to go to a world-standard competition. Due to this experience, I was able to create a product in a proper kitchen and learn dozens of valuable skills to assist me to become a better chef. The course staff and lecturer supported and guided me in creating a successful and fulfilling experience on the course.

Moreover, I learned an immense amount of knowledge and life experience from my lecture and my classmate; I will forever be thankful for their presence.”
