Because when you work in hospitality, you work with colleagues and clients of many different cultures, each year, Vatel Bordeaux has more and more international students.
This year Vatel Bordeaux has students of 45 different nationalities. A unique opportunity, beyond academic courses, to develop human skill sets such as being open towards others, being able to listen and adapt oneself to others.
'Vatel is an immensely enriching place to study with students of various backgrounds all with the same goals in mind, to be a leader in the field of hospitality. I have classmates who are from Vietnam, French Polynesia, Senegal, and the United States. After having so many international school friends, I can really say ‘Oh, you’re from Senegal? I have a friend from there too!' explains Kenny, who had worked for four years in the Kuala Lumpur JW Marriott before coming to France to complete his education.
“When most institutions only focus on courses through academic learning, Vatel proposes an innovative and immersive approach to learning. This makes it so much easier when we ‘step into the real world’ during employment,” concludes Kenny.
“What surprised me quite a bit was how environmentally friendly this place is and I absolutely love it! No plastic bags in grocery stores, cyclists and roller- bladers everywhere in Bordeaux really give this place a healthy atmosphere,” says Kenny, with a smile.
Kenny (Malaysian) : Jangan takut mengalami budaya baru! Sertai kami! Don’t be afraid to experience a new culture, join us!
Mai (Vietnamese) : Hãy cố lên và cùng gia nhập gia đình Vatel! Don’t hesitate to join the Vatel family!
Robin (Finnish) : Halutessa saada paras koulutus ja sitä kautta mahdollisuus työskennella missä tahansa maailmassa, suosittelen Vatel Koulua. 'For those of you who want to make the best out of your education and get the opportunity to work worldwide, I highly suggest Vatel.'
It is with great joy that we welcome our students back to Vatel schools. Of course, the virus is still around and so. we must all – cheerfully - respect the health measures put in place in our schools and training restaurants and hotels.Read more
