It’s no surprise that a love of cooking has led Ben to study a four-year degree in culinary arts and an ambition to work in the best kitchens
Ben Roche is a past pupil of St Mary's CBS, Enniscorthy Co Wexford and a WIT President’s Scholarship recipient. Ben was also one of four students from the BA (Hons) in Culinary Arts at Waterford Institute of Technology to have won a medal at Chef Ireland 2021. Ben won Silver in the Open Pasta category.
I wanted to study this course at WIT because:
I have always loved cooking and for me WIT's culinary courses offered the best opportunities such as the chance to work and study abroad.
The highlights of my college experience include:
Getting to know new people and learning new skills.
Why I would recommend studying in Waterford:
It has a great atmosphere and there is lots of different things to do
My advice for CAO applicants to this course:
Try get into the best kitchens you can in order to really learn your craft and become more creative.
