Beverly Chen said:

We combined with Anna’s class to run the pop-up café as an event and students will prepare everything from printing the menu to preparing food and drinks, and they learn how to manage the customer service.

Students run events like pop-up cafes, food and beer matching evenings and more

Anna Addison – Lecturer and Tamendi Pranish – Study Skill Advisor supported the pop-up café

Many AIS staff and students attended the event and enjoyed the food at lunch time at Asquith Café campus. One of the students of the hospitality programme said:

I would highly recommend this idea to anyone studying hospitality. Without practical training skills, you cannot serve in this industry.

The pop-up café was just one of the initiatives that form parts of the Hospitality Management Programme at AIS.Hospitality Management Students also enjoy field trips to visit companies as well as events in New Zealand. This practical learning style helps them to connect directly with the industry and potential employers.

Barista skills are just one of the practical elements hospitality students at AIS learn

AIS students are well-equipped with practical skill sets in Hospitality Management Programme

Beverly emphasised:

This class was just amazing. They came early today, prepared the food, took care of all customers. They were very organised. I couldn’t be happier.

If you have passion for hospitality, enrol with us and start your education journey.
