OUR APPROACH Learning by doing is a vital way of teaching with EBS. Reports have proven that 90% of what you learn is retained if you practice it immediately after, compared to only 20% if you are only taught with audio/visual learning aids. We want you to learn as much as possible and therefore will get you actively involved in the classes!
We ensure youâ€™ll have the perfect balance between work and play. At the end of each day youâ€™ll have plenty of downtime to brush up on your cocktail knowledge or take your knowledge on the road with you and your fellow bartenders, explore the incredible host of

MEET AN INSTRUCTOR
‘The best thing about bartending is that you’re surrounding yourself constantly in a social atmosphere. You’re the supplier of good times in an environment designed specifically for people to lose their inhibitions and have fun. The best thing about teaching is watching your students progress and knowing that you helped make that change happen and maybe the passion you have, lit a fire in someone and maybe that inspires someone else. Teaching is incredibly rewarding as you’re creating something, something really great.
The best thing about working for EBS is being able to travel all over the world, teaching and meeting people from different walks of life. Working with people with a shared passion and being part of the EBS family is a fantastic place to be.’

PMeet R O Vthe I N#EBSGradClub G R E S U LT S We’ve graduated over 50,000 students who have all taken what EBS has given them and used it in their own unique way, on different journeys. Here are a handful of our favourites, meet some of the EBS graduates who have made doing what they love, what they do.
Inspired by youtube videos, Nicolas, found the world of bartending calling and jetted from Norway to #EBSBarcelona, where he was able to further practice his Spanish and fell in love with the bartending industry.
Bitten with a solid case of the travel bug Josefine wasn’t hard to convince when her friends suggested studying with #EBSPhuket.
As a finalist for our Ticket To The World competition, Nicolás, once again found himself experiencing the month of a life-time all over again at #EBSKos. Now Nicolás is our event manager at #EBSSydney continuing to share his passion with hundreds more.
2 6 | W W W. B A R S C H O O L . N E T
After graduating Josefine stayed on with new found friends and travelled Thailand. During this time she met her best friend for life. Together they pursued their dream as bartenders in Melbourne. Eventually returning to Sweden, Josefine found herself longing to return to Australia. Now, finally back in Melbourne studying events while still using her passion in bartending as income in her new life.
After a crazy month of studying and partying with #EBSKos Fred found himself addicted to the EBS way of life. Attracted to the island, Fred gained employment at Kyttaro Nightclub on Kos. Since his course Fred is still heavily involved with the #EBSKos events team and is wowing current students with his cocktail skills.
â€˜After my course in #EBSPhuket I got a job at a Rum Bar in France.

Holland before finally settling down in awesome Barcelona with
- Alexandre #EBSCare
Coming from a bartending background in France, Sara, found herself hungry to learn more. Within a few short clicks and a chat with #EBSCare she found herself with #EBSLondon.
After being inspired by his International Bartender Course with #EBSBarcelona, Jesper was drawn back to the city that started his bartending journey. Catching a glimpse of one of our many awesome competitions we run on Facebook, Jesper applied for a Ticket To The World with EBS. In the blink of an eye Jesper found himself among the top 10 flairers with #EBSKos fighting for the winning ticket. The next year of his life was a whirlwind of experience around the globe visiting all of the EBS schools and many famous bars. Jesper now wows customers with his bar skills in Stockholm.
London proved to be her calling after finding a job behind a bar in only 3 short days! In the heart of the cocktail capital of the world this young bartender has found her new home.

MEET #EBSCARE ‘After 18 years in my hometown I felt it was time for a change so a friend and I booked the #EBSBarcelona course! I had the best time meeting people from all over the world. I decided to stay in Barcelona and got a job as a bartender in one of the best beach bars. As summer was coming to an end I received an email saying EBS care was hiring in Phuket. Within 10 days of applying I was on a plane to Thailand! With #EBSCare I was able to travel around the island, see sunsets, scooter-ride through jungles and swim in beautiful waterfalls. I had daily contact with new students who wanted to be a part of the best bartender school in the world! When your job doesn’t feel like working you know you just love life! A few months later we moved to Barcelona. Since being back in Europe we’ve travelled to various schools. My job gives me the opportunity to work and travel around. I love it! From the small amount of money and time I put into my course, I got the best years of my life in return!
