International experience

Real World Experience
During the 4-year Bachelor Programme you follow two external internships as well as two internal operational training courses. In Phase I you gain practical hospitality experience, working for 10 weeks in our own facilities: restaurants, reception and Skotel (our training hotel). In addition, on completion of Phase I, you will travel to go on your 5 month internship in one of the 4 or 5 star hotels, somewhere in Europe.

In Phase II you participate in an intensive leadership training programme in the Ardennes in Belgium, where you experience and experiment with different management styles and approaches. This prepares 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, during your management internship 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.
