Get into industry quicker with an accelerated degree

Hospitality and events is a sector unlike any other - gain an authentic and rewarding introduction to our industry with an accelerated degree.

The Edge Hotel School prides itself in delivering innovative and rewarding degrees in events and hospitality management. With our accelerated degrees, students can achieve their full BA in two years, getting a head-start into our dynamic sector and incurring less in tuition fees and living expenses.

Our BA Hotel Management and BA Events Management with Hospitality offer more practical experience within our fully-commercial 4* country house hotel, Wivenhoe House. In combination with our engaging and industry relevant teaching, our accelerated degrees offer our most authentic hospitality and events experience. 


Completing a full BA in only two years is challenging, and requires exceptional dedication from its students. These courses forego the more traditional structure of other degrees in offering extended holiday periods, instead allowing students to gain experience in our hotel over the busy holiday periods and offering holidays more in line with professionals in our sector, spread out over the course of a year.

A survey of our graduates conducted in 2023 shows that o the 89% of our students in full-time employment within six months of graduating, 75% of them went into supervisory or managerial roles. Our accelerated courses are one of our defining features - and proudest achievements.

Hear below from Eleanor Steele, graduate of the Edge Hotel School, on why she believes her experience of the accelerated BA Hotel Management has set her up for success.
