Our events for students, applicant and enquirers

If you're studying with us, there will be various events for students that involve employers from the world of hospitality, hotels and events.

Our annual Edge Hotel School Careers Fair is open to all of our students and usually takes place in the autumn term. Employers from organisations such as Iconic Hotels, Exclusive HotelsHilton, The Dorchester Collection, Shangri-La and Rocco Forte regularly exhibit at this event.

Occasionally you will have guest lectures or masterclasses from professionals as part of your teaching timetable. Recent guest lectures include: a recruitment lecture with Apex hotels, revenue management with Leonardo Hotels, contemporary issues in hospitality with Handpicked hotels, an insight into motor sport events with Goodwood, and change management with the general manager of Georgian House.

In the final level of your course, you may attend the annual Edge Hotel School Alumni Event. Usually hosted at a hotel venue in London, this event welcomes some of our alumni and supporters from industry to network and provides you with an invaluable opportunity to speak face-to-face with potential employers.
