Close to the profession
You will certainly not spend all your time attending lectures. Apart from lectures from teachers and experts in the field, you will also be attending skills training courses, workshops and taking part in excursions to see the industry in practice. Teamwork plays a major role. In the workshops, you’ll be working in a group of students on practical problems or projects. Furthermore, Hotel Management School Maastricht has received a special accreditation in small and intensive education, ensuring students will receive the best and most personal education in hospitality management.
Teaching hotel in a castle
And what’s more, you’ll be exposed to the real-life environment of Teaching Hotel Château Bethlehem. This is a training environment unique in the Netherlands, including twenty-six guestrooms, a restaurant, a bar and various meeting rooms. The hotel has received a lot of attention in the international media, not least for its unconventional room designs by Dutch designers.
First-year students enjoy a single room in one of our brand new student residences. The campus is situated in a park-like setting and houses a tight-knit community in which students will make friends for life. Furthermore, we have hospitality assistants available 24/7 to assist students wherever needed. The campus is only a 10-minute bike ride away from the vibrant city centre of Maastricht. Maastricht is considered the heart of hospitality in the Netherlands and has a very international (student) community.
The best way to experience our hotel school and check if it is a good match is to come and visit us – you are always more than welcome to! The international Open days are fully in English and you have several options (online and on-campus) to select. Furthermore, you can partake in academic challenges to get a taster of the curriculum.
