As both the cultural capital and the actual capital city of New Zealand, Wellington is a fantastic place to live and study. It’s not a surprise that Lonely Planet dubbed Wellington the world’s “coolest little capital.”
Nestled within the heart of the city’s vibrant and multi-cultural entertainment district lies Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand. Established 2012 as a state-of-the-art cooking school, it has a team of French trained chef tutors and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, such as Paco-Jets, steam-injected bakers ovens, sous-vide cookers and a pastry kitchen with a nine-metre composite stone bench.
With nearly 200 students from over 23 different countries, the school is as vibrant and multi-cultural as the city itself.
Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand is within walking distance of some of the city’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, cinemas, museums, art galleries and live music venues. Efficient public transport means there’s no need to own a car here.
Walking around the city is safe, even at night, especially as Kiwis are renowned for their friendliness. Wellington city first gained World Health Organisation (WHO) Safe Community status in 2006 and again in 2012.
