Internships are mandatory for all of our regular programs. Any special conditions that an applicant is known to have when enrolling in a program (health status, family situation, being a minor at the time the internship starts, criminal record, etc.) may limit options for internship placements and job offers. Under no circumstances may these conditions be used to obtain an exemption to the rules for completing the required program internship.
Due to the high risk of contagion through the handling of food and sharp objects, individuals with an infectious disease are not suitable for admission to ITHQ programs. For programs with practical applications in the kitchen, individuals with severe food allergies or dietary restrictions are not suitable for practical cooking programs. If an applicant does not disclose the relevant health information during the admission process, the ITHQ reserves the right to refuse registration.
