We highly recommend attending the selection procedure on campus. This will give you a chance to visit our campus, meet members of our faculty and staff, and talk to students. If you’re unable to join us on-campus, don’t worry: we also have an online selection procedure.
The selection procedure consists of three different parts:
1. Online testing
You need to participate in three online tests, to be completed at home:
- Numerical test
- Oxford English test
- Knowledge test
2. Interview & pitch
Use the selection interview to share your enthusiasm for joining our programme and your passion for the hospitality industry. You are also asked to prepare a pitch to share information about yourself. Your selectors will also pose questions related to the Essay you wrote earlier. Lastly, you will be asked to make a closing statement at the end of the interview. In total, the interview/pitch process lasts approximately 50 minutes.
In the coming 4 to 6 weeks following your selection day, you will receive the outcome of your application.
