Bachelor of Hotel Management (English Programme)
Xaverianenstraat 10
8000 Brugge
+32 50 30 51 00



The hotel management programme offers a high level of professional knowledge and skills, three or four foreign languages, a strong economic foundation, good ICT skills, the ability to work in a team, presentation skills and international experience. These competencies are also highly appreciated in many other industries and will offer you the opportunity to continue your studies and obtain a  Master’s Degree or an additional Bachelor’s Degree.

Teaching Method
We have deliberately opted for a semester system of twelve course weeks per semester rather than shorter modules. We believe this gives students more time to process certain topics and avoids continuous exam pressure. Throughout your Hotel Management course programme, you will be taught in small groups. Our differentiated approach and (individual) tutor support have gained us an excellent reputation.

The entire programme consists of six semesters, which together account for 180 credits. The general part of the course focuses on management, languages (French, English, German or Spanish), hotel and hospitality, social skills and teamwork.

Direct contact with people in the field is an essential part of the course. In the first year, you will  complete a one-week exploratory internship. In the second year, you will do a 6-week operational internship.

The third year includes an 18-week management internship. The course also pays a great deal of attention to the development of your international network. International contacts are essential for the hospitality managers of the future. In addition to a study trip and your international internship, you can also choose from a number of international projects as part of an international case. The facts speak for themselves: all our students complete an internship at renowned hotel chains and 80% of internships are located in France, Germany, Norway, the Canary Islands, the Netherlands, Austria and so on. You will receive an Erasmus scholarship for an international internship.
