In each of the 3-year curriculum, students must go through a paid internship over a 6-month period. The remuneration depends from the country in which the hotel is located and may include accommodation and meals. In all cases, the hotels proposed by SHG Lyon are always in the 4* or 5* category. Thus, SHG Lyon takes care of all necessary arrangements. Transportation expenses to the internship destination are usually born by students.
During and after each internship, students are evaluated and graded by the hotel. Following each internship, students have to write a management report proving that he/she has fully mastered the internship's objective.
