Welcome to the first hotel school of its kind in the UK, where students have access to a unique learning experience.  Not only do our students study the theory to achieve a degree in Hotel Management, they also work alongside hospitality professionals – putting their knowledge into context right away - helping to run a real-life, 4* country house hotel. 

The Edge Hotel School equips you with the professional and managerial skills, as well as the academic theory, to prepare you for your future career as a leader in the industry.  This is a fast-track, two-year intensive Hotel Management degree that will allow you to experience the realities of life in the hospitality industry. 

The Edge Hotel School is based in beautiful parkland on the University of Essex Colchester Campus, in Wivenhoe Park.  Here, you will have the best of both worlds – not only will you be graduating from a leading university, which was ranked 2nd in the UK (2013) for student satisfaction – but you will also be gaining industry knowledge and professional experience at the same time.  All of this will make you more employable and set you apart from other graduates to become a leader in your field.
