When to apply?

There is no special date to apply. For example, you can enroll two years before the beginning of your training if you want. First come, first served!

We don’t have a special date to close registrations but when the classes are full we’ll stop taking new applications. Be aware that if you need a visa it may take a long time so you have to enroll as soon as possible.

For the September intake, which is the larger one (number of students), we usually stop registration in April.

For the January intake, we usually stop registration at the end of September.

For the April intake, we usually stop registration at the end of December.

Sometimes it’s possible to apply at the last moment, if you don’t need a visa and of course, if there are still places available. If you decide to enroll at the moment, please contact us at contact@gastronomicom.fr

(*) Required informations.

(**) Cancelling conditions:

Enrollment fees are non-refundable. 

Cancellations up to a minimum of two months before the start of the program are eligible for a full refund of tuition fees, except if the program has been postponedException: for those who received official documents in order to obtain visa, they must give us an official document from the French Embassy proving that they didn’t use the official document we gave them.

Cancellations between one and two months before the start of the program will receive a refund of 50% of tuition fees. 

No refund will be possible for cancellations made less than one month before the start of the program. Where proof of visa refusal can be provided from the Embassy (and the reason for the refusal is not the fault of the student), tuition fees will be refunded in full. No refund can be given after the program has started, including in the case where a student must leave because of extenuating circumstances. 

No refund can be given following the expulsion of a student owing to the disrespecting of the rules and regulations (signed on arrival at the school). 

Lodging is provided by the school. If you wish instead to identify your own lodging elsewhere, this must be communicated to the school a minimum of one month before beginning the program, as the school has to arrange and pay for the accommodation before the start of term. If you change your mind part-way through the program and choose to move elsewhere, the lodging fees cannot be refunded.

Your enrollment will be confirmed upon receipt of the documents requested by us in our confirmation email.

How to get to Agde?
The best way to get to our school is to take a flight to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris and then take the Perpignan-bound TGV train, which departs directly from the airport and stops in Agde, and we can collect you from the brain station (for the September, January and April intakes). This is the easiest and also cheapest way to get to Agde.
