Due to the coronavirus outbreak Leiths has made the difficult decision to cancel all planned courses (except our online courses) until the end of June. In these exceptional circumstances all students who have booked places on our courses will be offered the opportunity to cancel or reschedule their course. If you are currently in the process of taking a multi-part course, you will be offered new dates to complete the course later in the year. Of course we will be dealing with a high volume of calls and emails and we thank you for your understanding and patience during this unsettling time. We look forward to cooking with you at Leiths in the near future.

The Leiths Diploma is an internationally renowned full time cookery course designed for those with professional culinary ambitions.

The Diploma in Food and Wine may be taken in three terms (with the student taking the Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced Certificates) or in two terms (with the student taking the Intermediate and Advanced Certificates). The Foundation Certificate may also be taken as a standalone course.

Our popular Essential Certificate can be taken full time in August, as an evening course, or even online. We’ve also just launched The Essential Certificate - Part 2; a follow-on Evening course.
