IHTTI School of Hotel Management School of Hotel Management reviews

Daria N.

Awesome level from and to: starting from equipment in classes and ending with internships - this quality cannot be found not only in Russia, but as it seems to me, in no other country at all.

I wanted to get an education in the field of hotel service in Switzerland at once: without offending such educational mastodons like America and England, I think that it is here that this area is most developed. Switzerland itself is a rich and prosperous country, which means it can ensure a truly high international level. I calculated all the expenses, I passed on the language certificate (my training is in English), and my documents were accepted the first time.

Practically all the training goes, if not immediately to practice, then within a couple of weeks you will still work out the theory on an internship or working hours. This is convenient: not only is it that everything is remembered many times better (by living examples), and internships are paid by themselves. I can’t say that it directly pays for the cost of IHHTI (education in Switzerland is not cheap, I’ll say right away), but it is enough for current everyday expenses, so-called pocket money unloads. Absolutely all students, any directions - everyone trains in real conditions: at the reception desk, booking service, event department, and even at the maid service and restaurants. Specifically, I like the fact that no one gates to work: considering the status of the university, it could be assumed that there will be solid rich scions of hotel empires, but in reality everything is different: people who know what sacrifices and labors are involved go for the sake of the profession and are ready to plow for three. Personally, I like this approach, I myself pursue the same goals.

Powerful teaching staff: all the practices, a lot of cases and real life situations: right on the pair they can say "I had such and such a moment, how would you solve this question?" We sit, discuss everything, then the teacher says how everything was decided then, and again we analyze the causes / consequences, etc.


I study at the baccalaureate in IHTTI School of Hotel Management , and my trip was organized by Smapse company - I was very pleased why I am writing this review.

Even when I was in Russia, I thought of getting an education abroad: the prestige of the diploma can not be compared, and the quality and comfort conditions are generally beyond praise. Sam sat on the Internet, read reviews, consulted with friends - in the desire to strengthen, but had no idea how to organize it all. I recommend everyone not to lose time and turn to educational agents - believe me, this is not money for the wind, it's the contrary, significant savings. Smaps, among other things, was bribed by the fact that they work as official representatives, and do not take money as intermediaries.

I was quickly picked up by the university - where else can I study hotel business, as in Switzerland ? Level of education, of course, heaven and earth - with a Russian (albeit Moscow) university, where I studied for one and a half courses, do not compare. I look forward to the first internship (by the way, they are obligatory here for everyone, and it will not work out as we do in practice) - I want to try everything I learned in practice! Of course, it was difficult to enter: I had to pull up English very quickly (I needed a certificateIELTS ), but then again I was picked up for quick training in Smalls (held in London): in just a few weeks, I knew everything about IELTS and passed it even better than I had expected.

Thanks to the company, I'm very pleased with working with Smapse! Now, when my friends and acquaintances ask me, I will be able to recommend this company.

Feedback-interview about training in the IHTTI school of hotel management

Study in Switzerland: Every day is an inspiring experience

Any country is a special mentality, culture, natural landscape, standard of living. Each country is suitable for its resident. As well as a particular university - his student. Permyachka Alexandra Pyshmintseva always knew for sure that she would not study in her native city, but at least in the capital, or better still abroad. Somewhere out there, in a big metropolis, at an international university, she saw herself surrounded by interesting people, events, ideas. The girl's dream came true. In on-line correspondence Alexander agreed to briefly tell our readers about her studies in "Swiss School of Hotel Management IHTTI »:

- How did you end up in Switzerland? By what principle did I choose the educational programs?

- When I was in the last grades of the school, I was fortunate enough to become a participant of the UN conference in Geneva. From this trip, and began my thoughts about studying in Switzerland. After a series of real meetings with different people, living, studying and working in this country, I realized that I would like to get an education there: I was endlessly attracted by travel, new experience, communication and promising areas of service. So I realized thatThe hotel business is what I need.

- What difficulties did you encounter when studying abroad?

- The educational process at my school was built in such a way that there were no special problems: everything was organized at the highest level, and we did not have time for "swinging". Very quickly, and tightened and learning, and new hobbies, and new people, so I did not have time to get bored or sad about something.

- What makes the Swiss different from Russians? Bring some striking examples illustrating the life of a student at a Swiss university.

- The locals are quite friendly. If you evaluate them with Russian eyes, then perhaps the Swiss might seem a little "unnatural", because they know how to hide their emotions and not show true attitude towards you. The main thing is not to disturb their peace and comfort zone. In general, the student's life in Switzerland is wonderful. There it is safe, there are many opportunities for entertainment, because of the close distances you can easily move from city to city or to other countries to change the situation and impressions.

- What are your relationships with teachers and classmates? What was the most exciting in the process of studying?

- It was in my school that there was a special family atmosphere, I had excellent relations with teachers and classmates. When you are in the same space 24 hours 7 days a week, it remains only with all to establish contact, and the whole environment, in fact, itself has to it. With classmates, relationships are tied up at once: as much time is spent working on joint projects. Students and teachers of my university - this is generally a separate topic! I love them very much. Everyone brought something new and memorable to my life! As for learning, I immediately got involved quickly, prepared assignments with enthusiasm and went to all pairs with pleasure. Again, the whole process of training is very organized and well-established, you just need to properly manage your time. I was very fond of making presentations, in preparation for them you learn everything: professionally build them, clearly speak, respond quickly to questions, manage attention and be able to present yourself to people.

- How much is the cost of studying and living in Switzerland? How quick is the newcomer to adapt here?

- The cost of my training included accommodation, meals, insurance and so on. I believe that the price is justified, given the standard of living in Switzerland. In addition, from the first year of study, all students undergo compulsory paid internships in hotels in Switzerland and other countries of the world, so it is possible to partially recover the funds spent. It is difficult to say how much money you need for additional expenses: everyone spends differently. I advise newly arrived students not to get lost and be sociable, then everything will be fine.

- What educational programs in Switzerland do you consider the most attractive for Russian students? What do you recommend to those who are determined with a choice?

- I can say with confidence that studying the sphere of tourism, design, hospitality in Switzerland is perspective and attractive! This is one of the fastest growing spheres of business, they do not stand still, they are innovative. Travel is a trend, andThe tourism and hospitality industry is a lifestyle. In my opinion, the future student needs to carefully study the subjects of education - each university has some special feature and direction. And best of allto seek help from specialists of the company "SMASS" , they have enormous opportunities and knowledge related to accompanying students abroad, they will help in choosing an educational institution and program.

- What was the most inspiring experience for you during the educational program?

- Every day was and is for me an inspiring experience, something new and unexplored is constantly happening in my life, From this variety and draw inspiration! Very much influences the environment, the overall working and friendly atmosphere in training. In my case, all the guys came to our school with one common desire - to get education and a new experience, to make a jump on the career ladder and to develop further. That is why, according to the law of synergy in the learning process, I was in constant tonus and wanted to move only forward.

- How did your career develop at the moment?

- Now I work as an assistant to the general director in a chain of world-class hotels. I can not say that it was very easy to find a job, but it's not an industry or a specific person's problem, it's just a process that requires time, resources, knowledge and skills.

- With which country do you associate your professional future?

- At the moment I live and work in Russia. It is difficult to plan something further, and I do not want to! Now, it seems to me, it's time to live in Russia, but I will not make a guess. I always have the opportunity to go to work in another country thanks to theEducation in Switzerland .
