UCC Specialized Food Production Diploma, Spanish Month and Afternoon Tea
UCC’s long-standing diploma in specialist food production is looking for its next batch of students to be a mix of online and in-person courses, with 75% of in-person sessions taking place in Dublin at IMI. It’s a departure for UCC, and paves the way for a hitherto less accessible cohort of small food producers in the Dublin and Leinster area, as well as counties further north. The course is subsidized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Marine at 64%, which means that the cost of the course for the student is €1,000. Over 300 have participated to date and it is aimed at small specialty food producers who want to grow or scale their businesses. Fees include full tuition, all course materials and refreshments. Application deadline, September 23.
