Our Bachelor’s degrees come with two professional internships where you get to choose the destination, industry sector and position. In this article, we’ll reveal more about this exciting and rewarding global experience…

While learning theory is important, putting it in to practice is what makes the difference in hospitality. Even better when you can immerse yourself in new countries and cultures alongside this valuable work experience. That’s why we make professional internships an integral part of our Bachelor’s programs.

So what can you look forward to in these jet-setting internship experiences? Read on to find out.

You can live and work in two countries of your choosing

If you have a passion for travel and new experiences, internships are made for you. Your Bachelor’s degree offers two internships and (subject to visa restrictions) you have a free choice of where to go. Not only do you get to work abroad, you also get to experience new ways of life and different cultures as you build your professional skills.

See how one of our students enjoyed the beautiful island of Madeira…
