    BHMS is a very nice school for study. It is located in the centre of the city, so everything is very convenient for students. Supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars, and transportation are around the school buildings. It's only a 10-minute walk to the main train station and bus stops are everywhere. Students are from over 18 different countries, so it is a very diverse community. It is fantastic to study and learn in this multinational culture. The accommodations at the school are very nice and we have different types of rooms: studio, single room with share facilities, and share room with share facilities (two people / three people / four people / five people room).

    They should think more about our wellbeing. They should give us memberships to a gym or a spa facility; hire a therapist; or improve the cleaning and laundry facilities.

    I would say I have made a great college selection. Students are supported to produce high-quality work by staff who are enthused and provide the information needed for success. They ensure that students are engaged in excursions, which are great for relaxing from work and exams. The school is located in the heart of Lucerne where transportation and shopping are definitely not issues.
    The best thing for me about the school is how well the multicultural students get along.

    B.H.M.S. is one of the best Swiss school located in the city of Lucerne. Though it is a small school with a population of 1,000 students, the school is well equipped with facilities.
    1) Accommodation halls are fully furnished with a bathroom, kitchen, closet, kitchen utensils, bed sheets & lamp.
    2) In the midst of a request or any occurrence with a problem, the front desk is always open on a 24-hour basis with available man power to fulfill our needs at all times.
    3) With a demographic of 60% of Asians, 30% Caucasians & 10% Africans, hospitality students are naturally good with socializing. Hence, most of the time, I get along with all students, and it's fun getting to know about the aspects of another culture.
    4) Lucerne is a small town and things that are deemed as necessities are easily accessible and within a 15-minute walk from campus. If we want to travel to another city in Switzerland, the SBB train system offers a good package at affordable prices.
    5) BHMS offers weekly activities for free. Through these activities, I have learnt to sled in Melchsee- Frutt, visited various museums, been to Interlaken, and, of course, partied in Lucerne.
