In 1966 a pioneer educational program was created in Europe, formed by a Hotel-School with restaurant where university hospitality students could conduct their internship, since the first day, with real customers, under the supervision and direct assessment of a professional teaching staff.
Continuous training is essential in the hotel and tourism industry, which is subject to constant improvement and development. Therefore, at H-E StPOL, for all those who have finished their training programs and/or have professional experience, it expresses its offer of on-going training on different levels:
H-E StPOL creates personalized strategic training programs for managers in leadership, advanced management of human resources, incorporation of new technologies, internationalization strategies, corporate responsibility, environmental management, latest tendencies in communication and marketing, advice and image and other areas.
Every year, H-E StPOL celebrates the Professional Development Days, event where the representatives of corporate recruiting of the most important hotel and restaurant companies come to the school to interview the students that complete their studies with the purpose of achieving their final internships and join the companies.
The mission of the Professional Development Days is to make the students approach the national and international hospitality, touristic and restaurant leader groups. This relationship university–company offers the students the opportunity to participate in the presentations of the companies, get interviewed and establish labor links..
The residence of the school is located in the Hotel Gran Sol, that offers during the course a third part of the rooms as s Students Residence.
There are three forms of accommodation to choose from:
