Certificate IV in Patisserie and Diploma of Hospitality Management

Pursuing his passion and interests in hospitality and culinary arts, Marco has completed a Certificate IV in Patisserie and a Diploma of Hospitality Management course at Box Hill Institute. He is ready and eager to continue his dream and further his studies with a Bachelor Degree in Hospitality Management at Box Hill Institute in Term 3 2017.

Marco said, “Box Hill Institute offers you great courses to study. The teachers are easy to get along with and are very professional. I enjoyed their teaching, especially during one-on-one sessions.

“The location is excellent, with easy access to public transport and the local shopping centre. And the facilities are excellent. I love the library and café very much.

“I spend my lunch breaks studying and getting my homework done, and I enjoy meeting a lot of new people and making new connections on campus,” he said.

Students enrolled in the Certificate IV in Patisserie develop a range of incredible skills in practice and in theory, from preparing cakes and pastries to learning how to manage conflict and finances within a budget.

Marco said, “While studying a Certificate IV in Patisserie, what I enjoyed most was making marzipan figures, chocolate displays and showpieces, while in my Diploma of Hospitality Management, I enjoyed learning how to manage a business.”

With the right motivation and attitude, Marco believes “if you apply yourself and remain dedicated, hospitality and culinary arts are great to study.”

In the future, Marco aims to become a hotel or event manager. His role model is Australia’s most celebrated patissier and chef, Adriano Zumbo. “I love the creativity he puts into his food and desserts,” he said.

In addition, Marco said, “I would like to thank my family, friends and home stay family for the continuous support I receive during my studies at Box Hill Institute.”
