Bachelor’s programme in Tourism

Bachelor of Science HES-SO (BSc) in Tourism

Collaboration with companies, institutions and external partners

There are many opportunities for companies, institutions and external partners to collaborate with the Tourism Degree Programme.

These may be business projects developed by a group of students or by a company-school under the supervision of professors specializing in the field, a bachelor's thesis or mandates for services and applied research projects (carried out by the Tourism Institute).

Business projects and bachelor's thesis - Win-win strategy

You allow students to work on a concrete project - your company/destination benefits directly from the result.

As part of their training, students choose their specialization options in their final year and work according to a project-based learning logic. Throughout their academic program, they acquire skills in the following areas: tourism / finance / digitalization / management / communication / sustainability / marketing / languages / soft skills (emotional intelligence-leadership-cognitive flexibility) / entrepreneurship / political economy.

Depending on your needs, students work under the supervision of a UAS professor to provide you with the required services. If your project is more of a thematic analysis, the work can be carried out individually by a student in the framework of a Bachelor's thesis.

We would be very happy to discuss your projects and set up the right collaboration for you.

Terms and conditions of the internship - Bachelor 2021

With the new study plan and the new regulation in effect, the possibilities related to internships have been modified.

Students who wish to do an internship in a company during their academic career will have the opportunity to do so. They will be able to choose this option among others that will be proposed to them. The duration of the internship is defined by the study plan of the Tourism program, which provides 18 ECTS for the "internship" option (1ECTS = 30 hours). This corresponds to a duration of approximately 4 months for a full-time equivalent (540 hours). In Switzerland, the internship can be done full time (100%) or part time (min 60%). Abroad, the internship must be full-time (100% - minimum 40 hours/week), for a duration of 4 months. The internship must take place between 22.02.2021 and 31.08.2021 (spring academic semester). The period mentioned on the work contract and on the internship agreement must be similar.

The internship program will be submitted for validation and confirmed in the internship agreement, as in recent years.
