Student life

50% of teaching is devoted to experimentation
“You never understand so well as when you experiment yourself!” This precept underpins Vatel’s teaching philosophy. And it’s more than words: it translates tangibly into experimentation in our practical training facilities, alternating with theoretical classes. At Vatel Nîmes, for example, students come into contact with real customers – in the hotel, the brasserie and the gourmet restaurant, which are all housed at the heart of the campus.
Give free rein to your imagination

So, right from year one, you test roles and situations in real-life conditions facing actual customers, supervised by your teachers. Each experimental session includes a segment devoted to experience sharing, and encourages creativity. You analyze, propose, and apply… Which is better than listening to a teacher for hours, don’t you think?
Internships to better understand on-the-ground realities

There is no need to search for an internship – Vatel looks after that. They all take place in three- to fivestar establishments. You are paid a stipend, and some establishments even provide board and lodging. Life is good, no?

SPHERES TO EXPLORE
In year one, you experiment with hospitality and catering roles. Then in your second year, you embrace the international space. When you begin your third year, you have already acquired a solid grounding and you are particularly attracted by one field – which you then explore in depth. You choose between three options: Luxury and International Hotel Management, Events Management and Catering, or Entrepreneurship. The purpose of these options is not to confine you to one department, but rather to open your eyes to a multitude of roles.
Learn to be entrepreneurial anywhere in the world, including your home country

Storing up knowledge is good. But leveraging it to make plans is better. Which is why Vatel has put in place innovative, fun and effective learning methods based on acting out scenarios and group work. Our belief? To make progress, you must face reality.

“ With Vatel, I gradually moved into my role as a Revenue Manager – until I had a lightbulb moment and set up Plateform – because no revenue-management software met the needs of independent hotels.
