At César Ritz Colleges Switzerland, learning continues beyond the classroom walls. This is why each campus offers ideal study conditions and leisure facilities.
The multi-campus approach balances theoretical and practical learning resources in a combination of traditional and state-of-the-art facilities, from the latest PCs, to projectors and electronic whiteboards in the classroom, right through to lecture theatres, production kitchens, a formal dining room and the campus buildings themselves. Students practise service styles, banquet and event management skills both on and off campus on special occasions and at community service events.
Each campus has its own modern library providing access to a specialised collection of books and research materials. An innovative online facility allows students to search for and reserve materials and also offers access to an extensive collection of electronic resources.
An International Environment
The hotel and tourism industry is, by its very nature, cosmopolitan, requiring workers to adapt to an international environment. César Ritz Colleges graduates work all over the world, building their careers at home or abroad, where dealing with colleagues, customers and partners of varying nationalities is always a key requirement.
At César Ritz Colleges Switzerland this internationalism begins on campus, where over 60 nationalities are represented.
In a typical day students can lunch with classmates from South America, play soccer with German colleagues, share a tutorial with students from Kenya and China, chat with a roommate from Australia and spend the evening with your Swiss friends!
Through interacting with peers students are encouraged to look at life in a different way, learning the ways of other nationalities. This multicultural environment at César Ritz Colleges offers a unique learning atmosphere, fostering true cultural awareness.
