Back by popular demand, the first Follow Me day of the semester took place at Les Roches on September 5th. The Follow Me Program allows prospective students to follow student ambassadors through a typical day on campus complete with a campus tour, hospitality company visit, lunch with students and a classroom experience. This semester, Follow Me days will be held on Monday 30th September, Wednesday 16th October, and Wednesday 23rd October 2013.
Prospective Student Profiles
One prospective student from Switzerland was interested in the Postgraduate Diploma in Hospitality program, having previously studied business. He is planning to develop holiday flats to rent out, and for this reason is keen to expand his theoretical knowledge in this area. Another candidate, having recently completed his A-Levels in boarding school in the UK, was unsure about his future career path, feeling pulled between different areas of study. He was eager to explore the idea of completing the Hotel Management Diploma course at Les Roches, and perhaps go on to do the Bachelor Degree. It was his second time to visit Les Roches, and “very much enjoyed the Follow Me day” after having a taste of Bluche on a previous tour.
Campus Tour & Company Presentation
The day started with a campus tour with the assistance of a student ambassador in the PGD program. She was very happy to answer the detailed questions of our Postgraduate candidate, while at the same time providing a general overview of campus life to both Follow Me signups. Following the tour, the potential students attended the Beau Rivage Palace presentation, providing them with a taste of the passionate and varied internship program offered in Les Roches.
Lunch & Class Attendance
Lunch was accompanied by 3 other student ambassadors who did well to make our guests feel welcomed and informed. Ending the day, they attended two classes, providing them with an overview of the range of classes offered. The teachers were very welcoming, even including our guests in the class discussions.
Overall, the day was a great success with very positive feedback from the prospective students who enjoyed the Follow Me experience. They felt it answered questions, either about program choice, or future career opportunities, and allowed them to the experience the ‘way of life’ atmosphere that Les Roches students enjoy on a day-to-day basis.
