The course combines a degree awarded by the University of Essex earned while working in a luxury hotel, the newly refurbished Wivenhoe House, and restaurant. Students will have the option of earning a one-year foundation degree or a BA Honours degree in two years, both awarded by the University of Essex.
Ramon Pajares, chairman of the Trustees of the Savoy Educational Trust, said: “The Edge Hotel School impressed us as an initiative that will benefit the entire hospitality industry. This innovative model combining work with academic study in a commercial operation is a fantastic way to prepare tomorrow’s hospitality managers for the demands of working in the sector.”
Scholarships will be awarded by a panel based on a combination of criteria from the application form and supporting statement. Applications for a scholarship can be found made by contacting the Edge Hotel School directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01206 872 858.
