Tourism and Travel - New Zealand School of Tourism
The largest specialised tourism and travel school in the country.
The tourism and travel courses prepare students for a range of careers in the industry, from hotels to tourist information offices, travel agencies, airlines, duty free, rental cars and lots of other tourism companies. The international flight attendant course can be completed on its own or as part of a two-year management programme and graduates have been employed with airlines all around the world from Air New Zealand to Emirates, Qatar, ANA, Garuda Indonesia and many more.
Our classes are small with a maximum of 22 students which ensures that each student gets individual help when they need it. The course tutor will also be a mentor, meeting with students regularly, providing feedback and advice on their progress as well as goal setting, assisting with compiling a CV and gaining employment.
Our Auckland Airport campus has a 747 service trainer with two galleys, a full length 737 cabin trainer with fully operational doors, overwing exits and evacuation slide, a 40-man life raft and emergency equipment.
All students experience hands-on learning with industry visits, speakers, field trips and study tours. The diploma study tours are to Hobbiton, Waitomo Adventures in the North Island, and Skyline Skyrides, Real Journeys and AJ Hackett Bungy in the South Island.
Students experience tourism businesses first hand and hear from the management team about the operations of these successful tourism companies
The optional international study tour will be to a Pacific Island to visit international resorts and tour operators.
Industry partnerships enable students to be presented with numerous opportunities throughout their studies, from work experience at the Koru Lounge and major sporting events through to our exclusive job fairs held in Auckland, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown.
Paid internships in the tourism industry are offered to all students enrolled in the diploma programme.
