A few of our students from 2013-14 batch have shared their experience about the program.

Karlstan Fernandes Hi͵ I know many won’t know me but I would like to share my experience as a Student who learnt more than textual knowledge at the St. Andrew’s Educational Foundation Certificate Course of Hotel & Management and Catering Technology.

I was an average student who had faced hardships like many of us today, but I was thought by my Professors how to channelize it to achieve one’s goal in life. Unlike other institutes we were thought to understand our weaknesses and face them. We were groomed not just as Students but also as individuals who can face the challenges of the world without fear. The knowledge I acquired during my course has made me who I am today. But this is because I had faculty who stood by me and I was dedicated to what I was doing.

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to discover his or her own worth.

I would end by saying “Tough times don’t last but tough people do“.

Enita Rodricks I have completed my Certificate Course at St. Andrew’s Educational Foundation in the year 2014. During my training at this esteemed institution, I learnt and developed the art of cooking, service and public relations. My Professors (Prof. R.A. Joseph, Prof. Leema Colaco & Prof. Rhea Machado), being qualified and experienced, shared their experiences in the industrial world, and this will definitely boost my self esteem in the days ahead.
Adriel Menezes I did my Diploma in Hotel Management at St. Andrew’s College, Bandra (West) in the year 2013 – 2014. For me it was a great year with all the inputs and guidance given to me by the teaching staff of the Course.

The guidance and knowledge given to me was really helpful and informative, and helped me thoroughly during my internship period. I would like to thank my Course Coordinator, Mr Randolph Joseph , my placement Coordinator, Ms Leema Colaco, and Chef Rhea Machado, who supported me throughout the course with their expertise and knowledge, thus helping me to complete my diploma successfully.

From the 2012-13 batch, the following student/s share their experiences.

Royston D'Souza My name is Royston D’Souza, a B.Sc. (IT) graduate. I was frantically looking out for openings in the IT sector, and being a fresher, I did not stand any chance. Later, through my colleague, I came to know about the One-Year Certificate Course in Hotel Management at St. Andrew’s College approved by the Maharashtra State Board of Vocational Education and decided to do this course. This Certificate Course helped me to broaden my horizon especially in my personality and technical skills. It challenged me to face the wide world of the hotel industry.

At St. Andrew’s, we also have a 100% placement cell, where I can proudly say I was recruited at Hyatt Regency, Mumbai, as a Food & Beverage Service Assistant, and am still on their roll.

I thank my mentors, Fr. Aniceto Pereira, Course Coordinator, Mr. R.A. Joseph, and my Prof. Ms. Leema Colaco for all their guidance and selfless service.
