*Duration refers to a Bachelor’s Degree Program like BA/BSc. / BBA in Hospitality Management.

Breaking down the table, we urge you to keep the following things in mind.

Tuition Costs

It is important to note that a hotel management undergraduate degree program would cost you around INR 15 – INR 20 lakhs per year in tuitions alone. Apart from that, a student ought to consider that there would be other expenses as well which would also include boarding and security deposits. The other expenses on an average would inflate your yearly costs by around CHF 10,000 or around INR 7 lakhs. But that is not all grim. Almost all of the above mentioned programs have in built internship programs which pay you around CHF 2,000 during the internship. These can be then offset against the fee.

Duration of Study

Generally, the undergraduate degree programs in hospitality management are of nearly 3.5 years. There are some smaller duration courses are essentially the Higher Diploma courses. For example, the two year Swiss School of Tourism & Hospitality has a 2 year program. This in turn requires the additional eligibility criteria of 10 months of compulsory work experience in hospitality sector or an apprenticeship certificate. The absence of the same requires the student to take up a 1 year preparatory course, bringing the same to 3 years. Also, some institute gives a student to take up higher education in Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne or other partner institutes to transfer the credits and convert the higher diploma into a degree.

Eligibility

And finally, last but not the least, the eligibility criteria. As already mentioned, all the institutes have an international program and have English taught programs. These then, accordingly, require a minimum level of proficiency in the language which is mentioned in the tables. Other English language tests conducted by Cambridge, etc. are also accepted. You can find about the same at their respective websites. Also, apart from the Language proficiency, the basic criteria remain the same which are

  • Minimum 18 years of age at the time of start of the program
  • High School or minimum 12 years of secondary school education

Admission Process

And how do you go about applying for them? It’s simple. You can reach out to the institutes. Usually they have two intakes…October and January. Also, since these are the best of the best, the admission process is selective. Some of the above institutes have a three tier admission process which include a preliminary selection based on your application, a selection stage and a final interview. Some might even have a written exam of sorts. They are on the lookout for people who truly share their passion for hospitality. And if you do…there is nothing stopping you.
