Go global !


Developing an international mindset is the key to helping our students prepare for successful living and working in a globalised world.  We’ll provide you with a range of opportunities to do just that, including academic exchanges, study abroad programmes and international business placements.


The international dimension has always been part of our DNA.  Ever since the school was created, we’ve done all we can to encourage our students to ‘go global’ and our professors to teach in English.

Cultural diversity is part of everyday life on a campus with 1,200 students, 60 different nationalities and where 40% of your future classmates come from abroad!


During the 2nd or 3rd year of your Bachelor degree course, our international academic exchange programmes with some of the best Hospitality Management schools in the world will open up new horizons and give your future career an invaluable boost.
