Edge Hotel School

Preparing the hospitality and events leaders of tomorrow, today

Want to travel the world? Hoping to run your own business? Thrive on the thrill of organising events? You’re in the right place.

 The Edge Hotel School experience is like no other student experience. Here, you will gain real hospitality experience and hands-on skills in a 4* hotel on the university campus, while studying for your BA (Hons) degree at Essex. Your learning is complemented by your access to Wivenhoe House - putting the knowledge you gain into practice throughout your degree. 

Our undergraduate degrees offer a lot of flexibility; whether you want to complete your degree faster on one of our two year accelerated courses, complete a traditional three year course or perhaps spend a year studying abroad, we offer you the chance to tailor your degree to fit you.
