EHL Group unveils new Singapore campus
Renowned Swiss hospitality school Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne has announced the opening of its first international campus in Singapore. With 100 UK students currently enrolled at EHL’s Lausanne campus in Switzerland, the new Singapore campus is set to attract a growing number of British students seeking opportunities in the region.
Set in what was once a boarding school for the children of British soldiers, the new Singapore campus in the former Kinloss House has been completely restored and will receive its first cohort in the fall of 2021.
“This is a valuable opportunity for a new generation of industry leaders to train with and learn from the best”
In the meantime, the EHL group plans to deliver short courses on-site as early as July 2020.
The Hotel School of Lausanne is home to an illustrious list of alumni, making up some of the UK’s most renowned figures in the hospitality world.
EHL alumnus Philipp Mosimann, who is also managing director of Mosimann’s – appointed caterers to HRH The Prince of Wales – said the new Singapore campus is the “perfect complement to EHL’s renowned Swiss hospitality offering”.
“South-East Asia and in particular Singapore is home to some of the world’s best and most technologically-advanced luxury hotels and as the Asian hospitality market continues to grow, this is a valuable opportunity for a new generation of industry leaders to train with and learn from the best,” he added.
EHL Campus (Singapore) is set to deliver the same internationally recognised “Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management degree as EHL Campus Lausanne, adding first-hand local market knowledge and experience to the curriculum.
This new campus aims to expand the opportunities for future hospitality leaders to thrive in an international landscape.
“We very much look forward to expanding our connection to the local community and participate in this thriving environment. It is with enthusiasm and conviction that we embark on this new adventure… as we hope to strengthen our existing ties to the Singaporean hospitality industry,” said EHL Group CEO, Michel Rochat.
Candidates can apply to start their preparatory year at the EHL Campus Lausanne in September of this year and then begin their bachelor course as the first cohort at EHL Campus (Singapore) in the fall of 2021.
