CHANEL
20 years / South African / BSc Student

Hi, my name is Chanel...I'm 20 years old, from South Africa and am in the Bachelor of Science in International Hospitality Management programme.

I chose Dubai for my studies as I love the sun, sand and the beach!  EAHM's location is perfect and the lecturers and school facilities are simply awesome - it's no wonder that EAHM is one of the best business hospitality schools in the world! Come take a look at a day of mine and see what I get up to along the way.  Use the links beneath to navigate through my day!

    In Class

    The day started off with a class in Housekeeping Operations.  Ms. Rima Kai's experience in the industry is simply amazing!  Can't imagine that the top end hotels put in so much thought and effort into ensuring that everything looks perfect!

    A typical class lasts for 2 hours each session and we are in class for about 20 hours a week.  After Ms. Rima Kai's lecture, we divide ourselves into groups and work on our projects.  Occassionally, we also have guest lecturers visit us in class who give us a better insight into the current industry.

    Hearing the practitioners speak passionately about their jobs is really inspiring!

    Studying in the Library

    After class, I headed over to the library to do some research for my project.  Scolah, our librarian is such a great help...it's fantastic that I can get all the support I need here at The Academy.  Our lecturers are also easily accessible and I know that I can go to them anytime for some guidance!

    The Library Lounge

    The library has a very comfortable lounge, as well as separate study rooms available for those intense group discussions!  Oh...did I mention that the library has a good collection of magazines and newspapers too? The perfect place to de-stress...

    Lunch with friends

    I head over to the Pool Bar on campus to meet up with some friends for lunch. I enjoyed a yummy turkey and mozzarella sandwich for lunch along with some good laughs...

    Catching up on some reading

    After lunch I grabbed a deck chair to relax by the pool and do some reading in preparation for my Marketing classes.  The combination of business and practical courses in my first year is a great balance!  And if I want, I could take up to 6 different language courses too!

    Seaplane Ride

    My best friend from South Africa is going to visit me soon and I haven't seen her for ages.  She will be celebrating her birthday while she's here and I have decided to surprise her with a seaplane ride. 

    Did the research on it and I think that the view is just going to be out of this world!

    Wild Wadi

    One of the other things to do is to visit Wild Wadi....which is the water theme park just across the road from The Academy.  Told you the location is fantastic...  ;-)

    Enjoying the sunset

    Decided to drop in on some of my friends who are on internship in various Jumeirah Hotels.  They tell me it's hard work but they are all really enjoying the experience...can't wait for my six month internship in Year 2!  

    Working in such beautiful surroundings has always been my dream!

    Dinner at Madinat Jumeirah

    After a busy day, it is nice to relax with my friends and enjoy a good dinner at Madinat Jumeirah.  My friends are from all around the world....did you know that there are close to 60 nationalities represented at The Academy? 

    That's what makes the hospitality industry so exciting!
