First students at Edge Hotel School

After an intensive two year degree course, the first Edge Hotel School students have completed their BA Hotel Management.

Hotel and hotel school staff and academics joined the first cohort for a celebration drink in Wivenhoe House, the luxurious country house hotel where the Edge Hotel School is based.  Many of them already have jobs to go to and hotels have been holding recruitment events at the School as they are keen to employ the students who have benefitted from an exciting mix of academic and work based learning.

Vice Principal Zoe Pereira said: “We all have very mixed emotions at watching the first students head off. We have been through so much together with the hotel opening and the hotel school growing and developing.  They have been exceptional ambassadors for the course and we look forward to hearing how their careers progress.”

As the hotel school accepts intakes of students three times every year, the second group will finish in September and they will share their graduation ceremony on Friday 24 October.

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