Summer Classes in Nîmes, soon the “Grand Départ”

It is this time of the year again when the 1st year students of Vatel School of Tourism and Hotel Management at Ansal University are gearing up for their summer classes in France. From 4th June 2017 to 21st August 2017 18 of them will undergo a 10 weeks internship in Vatel Hotel, the 4* property of our sister School in France.

Summer Classes in Nîmes, soon the “Grand Départ”

Our student are thrilled at the idea of spending the summer in the south of France only 40 kilometers away from the Mediterranean sea, the beautiful beaches of Grau du Roi and the enthralled Camargue region.

Nîmes, a tranquil Gallo-Roman city nested in the Occitanie region of southern France, was an important outpost of the Roman Empire. It’s known for well-preserved monuments such as the Arena of Nîmes, a double-tiered circa-70 A.D. amphitheater still in use for concerts and bullfights. Both the Maison Carrée white limestone Roman temple and Pont du Gard tri-level aqueduct are around 2,000 years old.

But make no mistake this is no summer holiday but a serious and intense internship, students will have to perform duties across various departments, Service, food production and others as per the requirement of the hotel.

Hotel Vatel is open to general public, located within the school campus and adjacent to the student’s residence and their cafeteria. It counts 75 rooms and suites, 2 restaurants, fine dining and brasserie, banquet facility, indoor/outdoor pool, spa and gym, the perfect environment for our students to put into practice “live” the knowledge acquired over 2 semesters.

This year they will be accompanied by Mr. Amreesh Misra, Programme Director of School of Tourism and Hotel Management.

All bookings have been made; the students and faculty will take a direct flight to Paris CDG airport and then board a bullet train to reach their destination.

Now all are anxiously awaiting their visas, no doubt that it should only be a formality…

Many blessings from their peers and the faculty to the lucky 18, let this be a memorable and fruitful experience.
