Edge Hotel School is the first hotel school of its kind in the United Kingdom. Studying here will give you valuable, practical experience in a fully commercial hotel and you´ll get to connect with the industry right from the start. 

Wivenhoe House, a striking 4* country house hotel on the University of Essex´s Colchester campus, is where you'll gain the experience and confidence to set you apart and prepare you as a future leader in the industry. Alongside this integrated practical experience you will receive exceptional teaching from an academic team with decades of hospitality and events experience from both the UK and around the world.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE?

The information on this page has been submitted by the higher education institution itself, and it varies how frequently they update it. If you want to know more, get in touch and one of our student advisors will answer all your questions!

Across the Pond is the official representative for this teaching institution for selected countries around the world which means we can help you apply to their courses and help with all the documents needed to submit an application. We can help answer questions about their courses and the institution itself as they do not necessarily have the capacity to deal with student enquiries from all around the world on a daily basis. This also means that they can ask us questions about your application and we can help explain if they are not familiar with your grades, academic background or the educational system in your home country. They also appreciate that students who apply through Across the Pond get the help they need, not only in terms of submitting the application and supporting documents, but also with everything needed pre-arrival in the UK, such as student accommodation, visa information, funding information and well as preparing for departure to the UK.
