Your questions, our answers
Is there a training restaurant with a kitchen?
Cooking: a job unto itself!
AIM is not a culinary school, and unlike traditional hotel schools, its demanding course schedule leaves no time to practice restaurant table service*.
* Restaurant table service is addressed during the first mandatory internship - at least four months in prestigious establishments, offering real, hands-on experience under the supervision of training masters.AIM is dedicated to its main objective: transmitting to its students in-depth, unequaled knowledge and techniques in the domain of restaurant and high-end hotel management in Europe.
However, for students interested in the Culinary Arts, AIM offers a training option of superior quality through one of the most prestigious professional institution: L’Ecole de cuisine Alain Ducasse.
I studied English in high school, but without ever staying in an English-speaking country,
will my level be sufficient to succeed in my studies at AIM?
Yes, if you have a solid foundation in terms of grammar and the vocabulary necessary for a general conversation.
In principal, a score of at least 12/20 in your final year of English should reflect the minimum level required. Our teaching methods are designed to enable students with these skills to follow the courses without any major difficulties.
What if my level of English is not yet sufficient,
but I really want to come to AIM...?
We advise you to depart for an English-speaking country as soon as possible! Follow intensive courses and, if possible, work part-time in a hotel or restaurant for at least 8 months.
This is extremely beneficial and students who opt for this choice will almost certainly acquire the level necessary to be admitted to AIM.
