We provide practice and experience for various hospitality services - during the winter period for at least three weeks, and in the summer - from three weeks to three months (if you decide to practice abroad). The school provides a place for practice and ensures that the practice is "real", not purely academic, because we believe that practice is your key to success in building your career following graduation. During the practice, you will be able to consolidate the academic knowledge acquired in the process of education together with the skills you have learned. You will also establish useful contacts - after their practice more than half of our students receive an immediate job offer.
While practising abroad, you can count on a student - salary, which averages 300-500 Euro per month in net income. Partners will pay for accommodation and food during practice. In some countries, your relocation and insurance will be paid also. The documents which are necessary for practice abroad, are prepared by the school free of charge.
