Hospitality Immersion Program (HIP) 

Essential grounding in the fundamentals of hospitality. Designed for students without a hospitality degree/relevant experience. 

Academic semester 

Features leadership, entrepreneurship, digital marketing and financial/performance management, plus your choice of elective courses and a business field trip to Dubai.  

Industry internship 

A six-month professional internship gives you the chance to apply everything you learned in your first semester. We help to arrange internships with top brands all over the world. 

The Dubai field trip is an essential – and hugely popular – element of this PGD program, bringing to life what you’ve learned in the classroom.

You’ll get to visit some 20 luxury hotels, meeting with General Managers, departmental heads and other experienced hospitality professionals.

Get your name known in one of the world’s fastest-growing and most innovative luxury hospitality markets. 

 

“The opportunity to meet the heads of each department and ask them the sort of questions that you can’t ask in a normal classroom is invaluable. They treat you as professionals, you’re not just students, you’re entering the industry and they treat you that way.”
Lachlan Bond PGD student

As a PGD student you will have access to expert career counselors to guide and support you as you pursue your hospitality dreams.

And around 200 of the biggest brands in hospitality, luxury, finance and retail come to our campuses every year to recruit new talent.  

Your PGD program includes a 6-month professional internship, where you can develop your hospitality know-how and discover the secrets of the best, and most innovative, brands.

You can base your internship in your country of study, or make use of our global industry connections to try a completely new environment. 

Whatever your choice, we will help you secure an internship that matches your ambitions and personality, and you’ll be fully supported throughout your internship experience. 

 

"Entering a luxury brand store should convey the same feeling and impression as walking into a 5-star luxury hotel. And that is why we decided to start a collaboration with Les Roches, since they are masters of it!"
