Our Partnership with the Edge Hotel School

Wivenhoe House uniquely shares its operations with the Edge Hotel School, a centre of hospitality excellence for students studying and training in the top tier of catering and hotel management. The first of its kind in the UK, this partnership sees degree-level students work alongside our highly skilled team of hospitality professionals to gain hands-on experience in the hospitality industry.

Wivenhoe House is proud to be in partnership with the prestigious Edge Hotel School, where the motto ‘learn by doing’ lies at the centre of its teaching programme. Undergraduates at the school spend a large majority of their course gaining practical experience by shadowing the team of hospitality professionals here at our hotel.

Since its opening in 2012, the Edge Hotel School has welcomed students from across the country to study Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Hospitality and Events Management. Each year, students study a wide range of exciting modules, including Digital Marketing and Business Innovation, which help to prepare them for a career in the hospitality industry. The school’s unique and innovative approach to combining industry-engaged learning and practical experience is why the Edge Hotel was ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction for its subject area in the National Student Survey 2020.
