A combination of art and science
Our academic program focuses on a rich combination of traditional studies and practical learning courses which forge a strong basis for our students’ professional career. This has been one of the founding principles of Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne and the key to our success.
During their preparatory year, students are immersed in the world of hospitality and gain hands-on experience in all operational aspects of the school in conjunction with their classroom studies.
Our Practical Arts staff is at their side to share their skills and experience. This pedagogic approach, along with our multicultural environment, contributes to a stimulating and vibrant atmosphere in which students and experts can interact and evolve together.
Le Berceau des Sens
Our training restaurant, the Berceau des Sens, is one of the practical learning opportunities where students can put their theory into practice.
Le Berceau des Sens has become a reference in the world of culinary expertise and offers a fine dining experience, being awarded 15 points out of a total of 20 in the prestigious Gault & Millau Swiss restaurant guide.
