The SSTH Swiss School of Tourism and Hospitality has successfully met the high quality standards of the following accreditation institutes:

  • Accredited through the Swiss federal government (SFBI) framework for HF programs
    SSTH is the only hotel management school to offer both German and English HF degrees to become a certified Swiss Hôtelière-Restauratrice/Hôtelier-Restaurateur, which are recognized by the Swiss Confederation. The HF degree has a very high quality standard, both in its operational training and management education. The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI) states: "The HF degree programs impart skills to students that enable them to take on specialist and management responsibility independently in their field. They are labor market-oriented and, in particular, promote the ability to think methodically and interlinked."
  • Classification as tertiary education
    Courses of study at Swiss HF colleges such as SSTH, are classified as level 6, tertiary B education according to the national and European qualifications frameworks. Tertiary level B denotes higher education for professionals learning a trade. A level 6 qualification is the same level as bachelor.
  • Training Excellence
    The SSTH has successfully completed its pre-accreditation for the internationally renowned THE-ICE quality label for tourism and hospitality education. SSTH is now an associate of THE-ICE and was cited as a model Swiss Hotelmanagement School with a great deal of "heart and soul".
  • With the recognition of 90 ECTS part of the Bologna system
    The University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO) has recognized the German and English HF degree program "Dipl. Hôtelière-Restauratrice / Hôtelier-Restaurateur HF " of SSTH for an equivalent value of 90 ECTS points for entering the BSc in Hospitality Management of the EHL. This recognition gives SSTH graduates the opportunity to further their academic education by entering directly into their bachelor's degree. They thus become part of the Bologna system, which unifies European universities together in higher education.
