Samuel's a HIT
Swiss trip is a HIT for Samuel
Hospitality student Samuel Anderson travelled to Switzerland recently on a HIT Scotland Scholarship.
Samuel (26) from Bainsford, Falkirk, a first year HND Hospitality Management student, visited the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, as part of Scottish delegation on a special HIT Scotland bursary trip from 25-28 February 2019.
The aim of the HIT Scotland scholarship is to give an insight into the hospitality industry from a new perspective. Its purpose is to provide scholars with knowledge about how Scotland can improve its hospitality industry and be even more successful.
Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne was founded in 1893 and was the world's first hospitality management school. They offer three degree programmes (Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management; Executive MBA; Master of Science) delivered in French and English.
Samuel, who completed his Diploma in Professional Food and Beverage Service Level 2, and his Diploma in Professional Food and Beverage Service Supervision before he stared his HND, said: “I loved it. I thought when I got there it would be similar to what it is like here at Forth Valley College, but it is so much more. Their training restaurant is now a Michelin Star establishment run by students who prepare, cook and serve the food!
“I would absolutely recommend it 100% to any other hospitality students. It was not just the Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, but Lausanne itself. We had a meal at a five-star hotel in the town and their expert service, really was something to experience. ”
Michal Tomaszewski, a lecturer FVC’s Department of Hospitality and Salon Services, said: “Samuel is an excellent student and we are all sure this experience will benefit him immensely as he progresses in his career.”
