Our students study both the theory to achieve a degree while also gaining experience in Wivenhoe House, a real-life 4* hotel.
The Edge Hotel School ethos is to deliver industry engaged education and we want our graduates to be at the forefront of shaping hospitality in the future. Only with the support of the hospitality industry can we succeed in delivering a higher education experience to the skill level that you require as their employers.
We hope that you see the value in working in partnership with the Edge Hotel School to inspire and develop the future leaders of the hospitality industry.
If you would like to meet future graduates of the Edge Hotel School or hold an interview day then please contact the School to schedule.
There are a number of ways industry can contact our students and graduates about opportunities.
Final year Hotel Management students engage with you to resolve a specific problem or capitalise on a specific opportunity. The range of possible topics for projects is exceptionally wide, although they must have a link with some aspect of hospitality. This is an opportunity to harvest the research and innovative capacity of the next generation of hospitality managers.
Final year Events Management with Hospitality students will coordinate an event for an organisation of your choice, from the planning stage through to delivery. This offers an opportunity for you to invest in the future of the hospitality events industry.
Market and promote your graduate scheme or employment opportunities to our students. You can either share your vacancies with us so we can advertise internally or work with the Edge Hotel School to schedule interviews days.
Have a stand and meet the future graduates at the annual event held in October.
Held annually with a different theme each year, you could be a key note speaker, provide a venue to host the event or sponsor the catering for the day.
Share your passion, experience and thoughts to supplement our students' learning by delivering a lecture, leading on a debate or a skills session.
You also have an opportunity to provide financial support directly to our students. Scholarships make a huge difference to the students' experience, paying for travel and accommodation for work experience opportunities or simply taking the pressure off from finding part-time jobs to support themselves as they work towards their degrees. The terms and conditions can be tailored to match your ethos and expectations.
Provide personalised support and career guidance for undergraduate students who have specific career aspirations and objectives.
If you have an opportunity that you would like to explore then please contact us. We would be delighted to discuss it with you.
