Sign up for the experience of a lifetime!

27 Oct 2014

The Hospitality Industry is a global industry! It offers exciting opportunities to graduates who wish to travel, and take up careers both locally and abroad. This fast growing industry is a huge contributor to the national and global economy. In fact, 1 in every 10 jobs on the planet will be hospitality related by 2023. And since there is a worldwide shortage of hospitality professionals, the time to join our industry is NOW!

With increased industry growth comes a need for qualified staff with the necessary skills and knowledge to become world class Hospitality or Culinary professionals, either locally or abroad. At the International Hotel School, we are proud to be Africa’s leading hotel school! Our graduates enjoy worldwide status through our internationally recognised qualifications and dedication to exceptional service in the hospitality industry through practical placements. In fact, over 93% of our current graduates are already employed in over 20 countries around the world.

At IHS, it’s not just about the qualifications – it’s about the practical experience that our students gain. Without it, they would not be as confident and job ready. Our Work Integrated Learning (practical’s) which takes place at leading hospitality establishments is what sets us apart from our competitors.  For the full-time programmes, students spend 50% of the programme on the campus covering the academic curriculum and 50% of the programme in industry.

We have fantastic state-of-the-art campuses in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban as well an exclusive culinary studio in Plettenberg Bay boasting impressive operational kitchens for real life culinary experiences. Our Traineeship programmes offer trainees the opportunity to earn-while-they-learn in leading hotels and resorts nationally, and our Online Campus offers students and industry professionals alike the chance to study any of the IHS online higher certificates or any of our industry professional programmes available at the click of a mouse.

We have a range of full and part-time courses to suit everyone. So, if you're passionate about a career in hospitality or culinary arts, or you would simply like to improve your current skills, look no further than the International Hotel School.
