In each of the 2-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 are always in the 4* or 5* category. Thus, SHG takes care  of all necessary arrangements. Transportation expenses to the internship destination are usually born by students.
