University Term 2021 : Welcome Back

Some 110 students will start university term as from Monday 19th April 2021 and would return to campus for face-to-face learning sessions, as guidance from local authorities allows…

Return

School term is underway for the first intake of the academic year 2021/22.  Following the recent surge in coronavirus cases declared back in early March, Vatel Business School Mauritius had leapfrogged from face-to-face to live-stream sessions. This is another episode of what we had experienced last year at around the same period, but we believe that for students, lecturers and even the team, the feeling of déja vu and the fact that they have been through this before have reassured many that this situation will not last long. 


It is expected that the innovative pandemic-driven approach will extend till the next official phased easing of lockdown restrictions, in a bid to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, to protect the health and safety of the university community as a whole.


Aside from the primary concern of the institution being the welfare of staff and students, it aims to continue delivering its unrivalled world learning/teaching experience it is widely reckoned for. The missionary statement withstands, that of preparing the younger generations for a successful career in the hospitality and tourism industry.


The Management firmly believes that the virtual learning phase would prove highly valuable in better preparing students for the new generation’s working culture. The hotel industry should return back to normal as the island is on track for herd immunity. In difficult times, the ones who have been able to survive have always been those, who have managed to innovate and have maintained agility and flexibility.  Every other day, we learn that in our alumni community, there are rising entrepreneurs or Vatelians who are excelling in other fields which clearly highlights that Vatel Business School Mauritius has achieved its mission of being a business school and moulding young leaders of tomorrow.


Vatel Business School Mauritius recognises the implications of the adoption of an enhanced academic calendar for the year where experiential sessions have been postponed to later. Face-to-face learning sessions have taken to online modalities via virtual classrooms and practical sessions came in the form of regular remote assessments and workshops.


As the A-level exams timetables have been amended, Vatel Business School Mauritius has been flexible and has planned an intake for first year Bachelor degree students on 6th September 2021. Traineeships should also be on schedule as from 11th September 2021, in line with protocols devised by local authorities.


As for induction, students can expect a dedicated COVID-19 centric session on their very first day of the academic year. A worthwhile range of information and activities galore is in line up.


Welcome on board for a new normal year. Stay safe. Keep well.
