Let’s start the Bachelor Program ! - Vatel

Let’s start the Bachelor Program !

On Monday morning, 80 new students arrived at Vatel Switzerland. The intake week was the occasion for these fresh new Bachelors to discover the school, the area, and to well prepare themselves for the academic semester ahead.

Return

The week started with a staff meet and greet in which they discovered all the different departments that Hotel Vatel has to offer its guests such as: kitchen, restaurant, banquet, bar, pastry, reception and housekeeping.  These departments provide the opportunity for students to practice what they learn during their 3 year Bachelor degree.

The week continued with some administration; such as the essentials: applying for the student residence permit, opening a bank account, and insurance subscriptions. Students also followed a road prevention workshop with the Police Department of Valais.

Many visits were planned, including one from our hotel partner, the W Verbier. Another visit included Valaisan wine culture at the Oenoparc in Sion.

In order to help the new students’ integration process, the Student Life association also organised many events during the Week.

Perinne, a student from the French section, tells us more about her first impression: « I chose Switzerland for its reputation in the hospitality industry and specifically Vatel Switzerland for its international influence. My first week at Vatel has helped me to confirm that I made the right choice coming here: new landscapes, lots of different nationalities, various activities organised, etc. The first week helped me to integrate into a new group that I can now call « family ». I did my first practical week in the banquet department. Although my career objective is specifically oriented towards hotel management, knowing the basics of all department functions is essential. For this reason, it is very interesting and vital to do practical weeks in the application hotel. This is the reason why I chose Vatel Switzerland. »

We wish the first year Bachelor classes a warm welcome and the best of luck for their studies at VatelSwitzerland !
