Bachelor’s in International Hospitality BusinessBlended Learning Option for October 2020 Intake

Keep your education on track

We know that today’s circumstances might make it difficult for you to join us on campus and start your Practical Arts semester when our next Bachelor’s degree begins in October 2020. This is why we have developed a unique solution, which will deliver the complete semester 1 curriculum through a blend of learning at home and on campus.

A sure start to your Bachelor program

Your first, Practical Arts semester lays the foundations for your Bachelor studies with Glion. Our Glion Connect option takes the complete semester 1 curriculum and splits it into two teaching blocks of 10 weeks each – the first taught remotely; the second taught face-to-face on campus. While the teaching methods will be different, the learning outcomes are the same as you’d experience with a full semester on campus.
