Hotel, Food & Tourism
A hospitality course is your passport to the world. Hospitality is the world’s largest service industry, and there is a growing shortage of well-trained senior managers.
Hospitality colleges offer tourism courses, hotel management courses and culinary schools. A good hospitality management college can lead you to a career in restaurant or hotel management, as a tourism or travel operator, or work in convention centres, private clubs and casinos – or even on cruise ships.
If you enjoy meeting and helping people, travelling and experiencing different cultures, then a hotel, food or tourism course could lead you to work you really enjoy. And then it won’t feel like work at all…

Because there is such a shortage of skilled and experienced managers, if you want to work at a management level you can climb the career ladder quickly. You can also combine some business training with your hospitality course. This could lead to work as a business manager, or in sales, marketing or finance for a hospitality company.
If you plan on working in other countries, or in tourism, you may also want to combine your tourism course with language study.
