CDC works right from the first semester, each student’s performance is evaluated on the basis of academics, classroom activities, Outdoor Caterings and overall attitude and behaviour. CDC shapes the students to prepare them to face interviews with the industry and prepare their curriculum vitae. To ensure that students build up their potential to face the real world, the students compete and are selected by the industry. CDC helps students find the right place for them, but the students must go through a separate selection process with the industry partners.
The first phase of the selection process after CDC evaluates students based on their performance criterias, their CVs are sent to the hotel partners for selection. Our partners then select students for an interview, which CDC arranges for the students. Once students have been selcted CDC helps them through their visa process and booking flights. Before the students leave, CDC ensures they receive a proper orientation and stays in constant communication with students while at their placements. CDC serves as a bridge between the hotel partners and students, to ensure both meet their needs.
CDC communicates to students and Alumni via their official Facebook page and also via email. All job opportunities are communicated to the students through these channels.
CDC helds proper mock interviews with each student to prepare them for their interview process. They provide to them all important and essential information that will help students build their skills and pass their selection process.
CDC ensures that all students are doing well in their training and meeting the industry expectations. Evaluations are given out to the industry partners for them to evaluate our students based on their performance while at training. CDC also counsels students throughout their training period and assists in any way possible.
Post placement CDC sits with each individual student to discuss their experience at the training. CDC then assigns the students a coursework or assessment task to ensure students translate their experience into a presentation or a report. CDC takes from these student experiences as a learning experience to ensure the placements provided at GATE are benefitting students as well as our hotel partners.

I am very glad to have an international internship through CDC of GATE. This helps me to observe the real hospitality industry from near. I know that I can achieve more knowledge and more experience through this internship. Thank you GATE and CDC for providing me such an opportunity. GATE is guiding me, now I have to believe in myself and trust myself so that I can find my destination. The slogan – GATE because I care! is truly inspiring. Proud to be a Gatian!
365 days in the world’s largest, uninterrupted sand desert was spectacular. Anantara believes “Life is a journey” and it became evident during my internship. Never had I imagined myself working under 55-degrees-Middle-East heat, but the Anantara values and their brand promise were what kept me going. I completed my Internship in Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara in two different departments F&B and Front Office, and it was beyond my expectations.
The Professional Hospitality experience is an opportunity that provided me a strong foundation that is needed in industry such as Problem solving and Professionalism. I am achieving real and sustainable progress, at the same time I am learning how to take more responsibility and solve any unexpected obstacle I come across. GATE College has truly developed me into a well-rounded person. The professors here are exemplary in their teaching styles. Hospitality has a wider scope in developed and developing countries. I am thrilled to get the opportunity to do my internship in Dubai, Marriott International which is one of the leading brands in hospitality industry. It is at times challenging, but through these challenges I am learning things about myself that I wouldn’t have learnt otherwise. The cope component of my education has enabled me to attain the technical and practical skills that are helping me during my internship and further in future to compete in current market. GATE College provides various opportunities to students; it also fosters a very inclusive environment. Before coming to Dubai I worked in various hospitality industries while doing my course and that has always been fruitful for me.
As a student of GATE, I’m fortunate to have a “Master-key” to open every opportunities in the field of Hospitality Industry via HOSCO. This is where I found a seemingly “Challenging” Opportunity to have my Internship here at Hotel Arts Barcelona of Ritz Carlton Company. As I was the first ever student to apply for this kind of VISA Category from Nepal, I had obstacles parallel to every steps ahead. But continuous support from my parents, GATE family and my Guardians here at Barcelona, the dream of being in this Wonderland came true! So, as the youngest member of Frank’s Bar Team here, I have been nurturing my passion to get emotionally bonded with people from nook and crannies of the World by adding significance to their Ritz-Carlton Experience. Every single moment has been so joyous, either it be working with the Team or exploring the Majestic city or partying around with the other fellow teen agers from every continents here. I’ll for sure cherish these SIX GOLDEN MONTHS of mine for LIFE!
