Where are you now working and what are you doing?

How was your experience at B.H.M.S.?
“My experience at BHMS was of course amazing, I met wonderful friends which I still keep on touch with until this very moment, even though it has already been 4 years since our graduation.”
How would you describe the courses and what you learnt during your time at school?
“I loved all the courses and especially the first year where it was more focused on practical skills, so basically we were learning everything, even how to properly tuck in the pillows and linens. As well at the restaurant – how to properly serve, where to place the knives and forks. So, the first year contained more practical learning. The second year went deeper into theory, and the third year was the most informative and serious, as it was obviously the final year. I definitely learned a lot, which even until this very moment in being who I am and in what I am doing. Thanks to the school I had an amazing opportunity to have both theoretical and practical education with 3 internships in Switzerland, which have really helped me to be where I am at the moment.”
“I am really grateful to BHMS for giving me this amazing opportunity to be in the Hospitality field and allowing me to do what I love the most.”
