Term 2018A saw our very first intake for our Swiss Degree (Diplom HF) in International Hospitality Management programme.
The nine students, from countries including Bolivia, India, Taiwan and Vietnam, will go on to complete three study semesters each followed by a paid, practical training placement.
Recognised by Canton of Luzern (and under Swiss Federal accreditation) one of the main benefits the students will experience is the opportunity to learn both French and German as part of their studies.
Each year of the programme has a specific focus, with the first-year training and placement concentrating on Housekeeping and F&B, the second year offering more culinary training and the final year allowing students to complete a supervisory internship.
Students completing the three year programme can then move directly to the final semester of our BA (Hons) Hospitality Degree programme and achieve a UK-validated award in just six-months.
This structured approach, alongside the advanced-level language skills on offer, follows the Swiss education model’s emphasis on practical training and strong, international communication skills.
Completing the programme with a recognised Swiss qualification, 18-months of additional work experience and enhanced language fluency means students are strongly placed to enter the industry and build their management careers.
Our first set of students are already enjoying the varied learning methods and intensive nature of this course and we cannot wait to welcome our next intake in August 2018…
SPECIAL OFFER: Students enrolling on the Swiss Degree programme in August 2018 are entitled to a 50% reduction in tuition fees for each semester of study for the duration of both the Swiss Degree and BA (Hons) degree top-up semester.
