Swiss Hotel School Application Form 2019/2020
About Swiss Hotel School
The Swiss Hotel School in Randburg opened its doors in 1995. The curriculum and educational philosophy was modelled on that of the Hotel School Belvoirpark in Zurich where the founder, JüRG Vontobel had been Director for 10 years.
Enrolling small numbers of students each year the school quickly found favour with the Johannesburg hotel industry for the competence and “can-do” attitude of its students. Returning each year to his native Switzerland, Vontobel was able to maintain the currency of the educational offering adding elements and refinements each year. Through maintaining his contacts with Swiss Hoteliers and immigration authorities he was also able to establish work placement opportunities for second year students. Graduates of the School have been singularly successful in securing career opportunities both locally and overseas and form a growing reference group for new students.
