You will be asked to provide two essays.

A typed 500-word essay in english with theses topics to choose from:

  • Describe a challenging situation you had to face and what lessons you drew from it.
  • Describe tourism in your city, its cultural and historical potential. Give us your personal opinion.
  • Career plan: where do you see yourself in 5 years? What career do you want to pursue?

A typed 300-word essay in french with three topics to choose from:

  • Have you ever read a book that captivated you to the extent that you completely lost track of time? What was that book and what made you feel so passionate about it?
  • Tell us about a public figure (political, artistic, historical or sports...) who inspires you, and explain why?
  • Describe a trip you made, which you won't forget (local or international destination) and talk about what you liked the most.

The essays are an important part of your application. It is an opportunity for you to showcase your strengths, motivation and interests. 

If plagiarism is identified in the essay assessment or motivation text, the application will be systematically disqualified. Plagiarism occurs if the student submits an essay that is not his/her personal material, including copies from print documents, websites, or others without naming the references.

Copying someone else's written essay without any attribution is also plagiarism and cheating. You must only submit your own original essay. However, if you need to include text from other writers in your essay, please mention the references.

All of the documents listed below must be uploaded in the specific section.

We accept documents in French, English or Arabic.

  • Copy of passport or identification document
  • Copy of all available school transcripts from the last three years of high school (For students coming from the Moroccan schools: Please submit the overall transcript of the 3 years of high school)
  • Diploma or proof of graduation (You will need to upload this document as soon as available)
  • Two application essays (word document)
  • Language proficiency proof documents (If available)
  • Documents to support your application (if available): Certificates of participation in extracurricular activities, work or internship certificates, recommendation letters

Good to know:

Please note that if you still need to pass some exams, you can already start your application. Even though some documents are missing, you only need to fill in your email address and upload the other items.

If plagiarism is identified in the essay assessment or motivation text, the application will be systematically disqualified.

Once you have submitted your initial application, we will contact you within 2 or 3 weeks with a decision on the next phase which is the on-campus admissions test.

Upon a positive evaluation of your application by our admissions team, you will receive an invitation to participate in the SHBM online admission assessment. The assessment consists of 4 written tests and one oral test.
The online written tests include:
- English language test (Minimum requirement level of upper B1, Lower B2)
- French language test (Minimum requirement level of upper B1, Lower B2)
- General knowledge test (this test assesses your intellectual curiosity and your knowledge of significant events, iconic landmarks and famous people in the music and sporting worlds etc.)

You will then be invited to an oral assessment interview.
The interview is not a test of your hospitality knowledge. The aim is to assess your motivation and your potential. We will ask you to tell us about your experience and your expectations. Our questions will focus, for example, on any summer jobs you may have had, your extracurricular activities and your future career expectations.

Following the interview, we will evaluate your complete application and make a final decision.

You will receive your final decision within two-weeks of your online/onsite interview.

Financial Aid

What kind of financial support is available?

A scholarship system allows, mainly through the OCP Foundation, to support talented students who do not have the necessary financial resources. These grants can cover part or all of the cost of accommodation and meals, as well as tuition fees.

Academic scholarships are based on academic excellence and awarded based on your results at the entrance exams. They are intended to cover all or part of your tuition fees for the duration of your studies.

Good to know:
  • Scholarships and financial aid can be combined.
  • Obtaining a scholarship involves attending classes. Except in special cases, scholarships are suspended if you repeat a term.
Financial aid is granted annually by the Scholarship Committee on the basis of social criteria, depending on the family's income and expenses. They are intended to cover all or part of the cost of accommodation and meals, as well as tuition fees not covered by a scholarship.

To find out if you are eligible, submit an application with supporting documents to the Scholarships Committee.  

Good to know: 
  • Scholarships and financial aid can be combined.
  • Obtaining a grant requires attendance at classes. Except in special cases, grants are suspended in case of repeating a term.

Our Bachelor program is a full time program and therefore allows little flexibility for a side job.

However, there are various part-time student job opportunities on- and off-campus.

Contact our admissions team to get more information.

Today, paid internships are more common than unpaid ones. The vast majority of interns working in for-profit organisations must be paid at least the applicable minimum wage and overtime.

By choosing your internship carefully, whether in Morocco or internationally, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning a living.
