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.

Study in The Netherlands

The Netherlands attracts international students from all over the world each year. They love the country for its diversity, political stability,  the culture and its people. With 95% of the inhabitants speaking English fluently, and mix of cultures, you will feel right at home.  The Netherlands is also your gateway to Europe, as it takes only about an hour to fly from Amsterdam to London, Paris, Copenhagen or Berlin. 

You will feel immediately at home at either one of our excellently facilitated campuses in The Hague or Amsterdam. In The Hague, you live and learn in the lively coastal resort and port of Scheveningen, both close to the beach and The Hague’s city centre, with great architecture, attractive shopping streets and extensive multicultural scene. In Amsterdam, you will live and study in a completely refurbished building, just outside the historic centre of Amsterdam, with its beautiful canals and rich cultural life.
