Students

A rewarding student experience

The Luxury Hotelschool campus immerses students in the world of luxury throughout their studies. Their motivation is our responsibility: a beautiful hotel school, stimulating courses based on practical activities, study trips, a very good restaurant every day, breakfast served every morning, good Nespresso coffee, quality teaching materials and a variety of events organised by the student association – that’s what makes our students want to get up in the morning.

The Luxury Hotelschool has also received Happy at School accreditation since 2020 in recognition of its students' fulfilment and the quality of their academic, professional and social experience at the school.

Each year at the Luxury Hotelschool begins with a back-to-school team-building event, including a treasure hunt. All the year groups and the school's administrative team take part in this event which ends with a meal and a cruise on the Seine.

A course at a Grande École like the Luxury Hotelschool frequently leads to the forging of firm bonds with other students. High points such as this team-building event help to create and maintain this sense of community.

Shortly after their arrival, students embark on an exploration of luxury hospitality. They gain their first gourmet experience in Michelin-starred restaurants and spend part of their course immersed in the world of the palace hotels.

These top-of-the-range hotels also provide lounges or suites for seminars on interpersonal skills, protocol and etiquette, customer relations and leadership.

Every year in the initial hotel training programmes, students at the Luxury Hotelschool go on a study trip (included in the tuition fees) to explore major tourist regions and meet the managers of the most prestigious establishments in Marseille, Barcelona, Deauville, Reims, Bordeaux, etc.

We work with small groups of 20 students to strengthen team bonding. These experiences provide an opportunity for the administration, teachers, students and management to meet. They bind teams together.

Students at the Luxury Hotels School also have the opportunity, right from the start of their course, to find out more about their profession on work placements in the biggest luxury hotels in France and abroad.
