What's in store for you
The three year International Hospitality programme consists of intense self-studying. The amount of practical training in our training facilities and the period of the internship does not differ, compared to the four-year track. Students of the three-year course are also able to go on Grand Tour.
This three-year management course at the Hotel Management School covers hospitality, gastronomy, catering, events, human resources, marketing, sales and finance. It’s an international programme so the language of instruction is English and your fellow students come from all over the world.
You will work on assignments from real companies in each year of the course, often collaborating in small groups and coached by lecturers with relevant practical experience. This method of working means you learn to draw on feedback to adapt your ideas and become more flexible, while also developing your teamwork and leadership skills.
You will also work in our own four-star hotel. This gives you the chance to not only experience how hospitality works in practice, but also learn how to think strategically at a management level and how to carry out research. The diversity of the programme means you’ll experience everything from lectures in the theory of business management to tasting the most delicious wines in a wine class.
In your third year, you get to choose your minor. There’s a wide choice, so there’s bound to be something to perfectly suit your interests. You can follow your minor in Leeuwarden or at one of our partner locations in Thailand, South Africa, Italy or Bali. Studying abroad is a dream that has already come true for many students!
You will finish your programme with a 10-month paid internship which will increase the chances of you getting a job and starting work immediately after graduation. We have agreements with more than 300 companies in the Netherlands and abroad, all of them dynamic businesses that are eager to work with you.
