Connect remote learning is now enhanced and expanded
While face-to-face teaching continues to be at the heart of our educational ethos, we appreciate that current circumstances mean some Bachelor (BBA) students are unable or unwilling to join us on campus. These students are invited to begin their studies from home, using Connect, the bespoke remote learning platform which is shared by Glion and Les Roches.
For their next student intake, the Connect platform has been further enhanced to offer two study choices for the first semester of each school’s BBA program:
- Connect BBA 10+10 – first 10 weeks studied remotely, followed by 10 weeks on campus
- Connect BBA 20 – full 20 week semester taught remotely
Both options deliver the same learning outcomes as a full semester taught on campus!
Glion will host a talk on March 24th on the Glion and Les Roches Connect program to present the Blended Learning options at Les Roches and Glion.
If not able to attend the presentation, watch these videos to discover more about this state-of-the-art approach to virtual study. Students can also find more information in dedicated program page in Connect – Glion and Connect – Les Roches.

On Monday May 10th students can join online for a special presentation of École Ducasse, the international center for culinary and pastry arts training that became part of the Sommet Education family in 2019. Founded by the legendary chef, Alain Ducasse, École Ducasse teaches students from across the world at its two campuses in France. Programs range from two-month Essentials courses to three-year Bachelor degrees, with a majority offering English language tuition.
