Student reviews of the best hospitality and tourism schools in Europe

Here are several reviews from alumni who graduated from some of the best European universities and colleges that offer degrees in Hospitality and Tourism Management:

BHMS Business and Hotel Management School

“I have completed the Bachelor’s Degree at BHMS, and I am working as a Head of Conference & Events at a Hotel in Bahrain. I am very proud to be a graduate of BHMS because I learned dedication, hard work and commitment-to-results during my studies in Switzerland.

Now I put in practice whatever I learned in school and have a successful career. I would recommend BHMS because it's a nice school, you learn from professionals and through practice what's included in the hospitality industry, and they help you find a job after graduation which for me is very important.”

Leeds Beckett (Metropolitan) University

“The most interesting thing at Leeds Beckett University was that they generally were teaching application-oriented information which I found quite hard. Although the university is not quite big, the facilities were wide.

Access to any materials was so easy, and I have never seen such a great web infrastructure in terms of gaining any information. The city is lovely and the people who live there are the most respectful ones I have seen in my entire life.”

University of Alicante

“I loved that the teachers were really friendly and open! The courses were interesting and enriching! The teaching methods varied from teacher to teacher. Some were just excellent, some not. A woooonderful Virtual Campus, which made access to all the needed information, materials and resources as easy as possible.”
