Exceptional work placements
Work placements in the finest hotels
Adaptability, involvement and communication are essential skills taught at the Luxury Hotelschool, and they are excellent preparations for work placements.
For 30 years, the Luxury Hotels School has offered all its students the opportunity to undertake a minimum five-month work placement each year in operational positions in the first year and then progressively in supervisory and management positions.
Entering the world of work with a solid knowledge base, coupled with professional experience through work placements, is a real plus for your career.
Students put what they learn at the school into practice in the field, in a wide range of departments, including catering, in the kitchen and dining room of Michelin-starred establishments; reception; concierge services; accommodation; floors; sales and marketing; human resources; events management and communications.
Nearly 90% of students go to five-star hotels, especially the prestigious Palace hotels: Cap Eden Roc (Antibes), Hôtel du Palais (Biarritz), Le Meurice, Le Bristol, Royal Monceau, George V, Mandarin Oriental, Le Crillon, Shangri-La, La Réserve, Plaza Athénée (Paris), Byblos (Saint-Tropez), Les Sources de Caudalie (Martillac), Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, etc.
