About

Experiential learning is training gained in the tourism sector. This will enable the student to apply theoretical and practical knowledge gained from his / her studies in the working environment. Experiential learning is divided into two sections: practical work experience and compulsory educational tours.

Practical work experience: Each student receives a logbook that stipulates information and guidelines with regard to practical hours. There are three sections that are linked with the theoretical subjects (over the three year period) from which a 100 hours should be completed for each section. A minimum of 300 hours are therefore completed within the three study years.
