Dr Aulay Mackenzie has been appointed as Project Director to lead the transition to a new provider to deliver the education at the Edge Hotel School, based at Wivenhoe House on the Colchester Campus.

Former Dean of Academic Partnerships at the University, Aulay returns to ensure the smooth transfer of the academic delivery from the current provider, Kaplan, into an independent limited company with charitable objectives.  Edge Hotel School will continue to deliver a two year degree course in Hotel Management with the first students due to graduate next year.

Aulay said: “I am delighted to have this opportunity to take forward Edge Hotel School, which offers world-class innovative higher education in the fantastic setting of Wivenhoe House.

“The School will build on the excellent work in the existing partnership arrangement and ensure the offer is further enhanced and developed.”

Aulay worked in senior roles at the University for more than 10 years before becoming Chief Academic Officer at Synergis Global Education in 2011, serving as Managing Director for the last year.

The University of Essex will moderate comments and there will be a delay before any posts appear.
