Capsicum Culinary Studio and The Private Hotel School can now offer their students the opportunity to obtain a BA degree in culinary arts and hospitality. This is possible through their new partnership with Business & Hotel Management School (BHMS) in Lucerne, Switzerland, which allows for the exchange of teaching and professional experiences between both schools.
Students who have successfully completed the three-year Level 6 QCTO Occupational Certificate: Chef at Capsicum will be given direct entry to the final year of the BA degree in Culinary Arts at BHMS. Graduates of The Private Hotel School who successfully complete the Advanced Certificate in Hospitality Management (NQF Level 6) or Diploma in Event Management (NQF Level 6) will be given direct entry to the final year of the Bachelor BA Degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management BHMS.
Students will be helped with a paid internship in Switzerland or elsewhere overseas, as well as international work placement assistance after completing their BA degree.
Capsicum has branches in Boksburg, Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria, focusing on chef training, and The Private Hotel School offers hospitality training from its bases in Stellenbosch and Rosebank.
Says Capsicum and Private Hotel School MD Renee Hill: “We are thrilled with this new partnership which will afford our students and graduates ever better opportunities in the industry.”
