Hanzhang Wang, better known as Dennis, is one of Campbell’s successful pathway students now in his first year studying at Le Cordon Bleu NZ on the Basic Cuisine course. Dennis is originally from Tongliao in China and came to New Zealand with the intention of studying culinary arts.
‘The reason to choose New Zealand was because this country is well known as all the great nature ingredients, especially for lamb and beef. Le Cordon Bleu in New Zealand is the school that I always want to study at. However, at the time (before entrance), my English was not good enough to meet the entrance requirement. So I need to study in a language school first to help me improve it. Campbell is associated with Le Cordon Bleu which is the pathway to tertiary education. If I passed this course, (it means) I can go directly to Le Cordon Bleu. My dream is to study cooking styles from different countries. My final goal will be a good chef!’
The Campbell Institute provides non-IELTS pathways into a number of tertiary providers in New Zealand. One of the most popular is the pathway to Le Cordon Bleu NZ. Le Cordon Bleu is the world’s premier culinary arts school, founded in Paris, France. Le Cordon Bleu’s Wellington campus is one of their newest and combines new world innovation and local cuisine with the principles, techniques and artistry of the French traditions.
