The Programme

Developed from the demands of the Industry, the school’s curriculum is designed to challenge you, mixing the classic hospitality disciplines in the form of real-life cases and projects. You will work in small multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, learning from each other’s skills and cultures. As a university, our courses are based on thorough research and analysis; you are always expected to give a structured report of your findings. You’ll learn to present your results professionally and effectively. Our Training and Management Skills are cited by our alumni as being unique and one of our greatest educational assets. Language competency is also an essential hospitality skill: not only is the degree programme 100% English, but you also choose a second language from a wide range of modern languages.

Real World Experience

You need real practical experience to succeed. That’s why you follow two external internships as well as two internal operational training courses. In Phase I, you gain basic and practical hospitality experience, working for 10 weeks in our practical outlets/facilities: restaurants, reception and Skotel (our unique training hotel). In addition, on completion of Phase I, you go on a 20 week operational internship from our network of over 250 placement addresses in Europe, where you apply the skills learnt in the first year of our programme.

In Phase II you participate in an intensive leadership training programme with a skilled lecturer and a small team of students in a unique, offsite experience. Heading to the Ardennes in Belgium, you experience and experiment with different management styles and approaches. This prepares you for your managerial responsibilities for the 10 weeks you are required to work in a leadership role, managing a team in one of our facilities.

This culminates in Phase III, where your management internship forms an essential ingredient of the Launching Your Career (LYCAR) programme; you work in a management role for an organisation of your choice, from Amsterdam to Beijing, from Berlin to Dubai. Once you have completed this, you are industry-ready. It is a great opportunity for students to launch their careers; in fact, many graduates find great career opportunities at their placement companies directly after graduating.
