Hotel School of Sant Pol de Mar

“Learning by doing” is one of our claims, probably the one that better explains our philosophy and the concept of the Hotel School with its own training facilities.



In 1966 a pioneer educational program was created in Europe, formed by a Hotel-School with restaurant where university hospitality students could conduct their internship, since the first day, with real customers, under the supervision and direct assessment of a professional teaching staff.


The Hotel-School (H-E StPOL) is comprised by the University College of Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts Sant Pol de Mar (EUHT StPOL), which offers university training of bachelor degree and master’s degrees; the Gastronomy Center and Restaurant Service Sant Pol de Mar (CGR StPOL), that offers vocational training, and the Hotel Gran Sol.


Every year, H-E StPOL celebrates the Professional Development Days, event where the representatives of corporate recruiting of the most important hotel and restaurant companies come to the school to interview the students that complete their studies with the purpose of achieving their final internships and join the companies. The purpose is to design a career plan according to each profile and find a job through these professional internships.
