‘HOME. That is IHT for you in a single word. Our Lecturers offer interactive lessons and go above and beyond to ensure each student thrives in their studies.

Current student at IHT Hotel School /
Intern at Grootbos Nature Reserve, Stanford

‘The last 15 years since completing my studies at IHT has been one incredible journey. I joined IHT with the hopes to see the world while building a career in hospitality, and that’s exactly what it offered me. During our studies we were able to complete our practical’s at some of the best hotels in South Africa, allowing us to start building on our CV from our first year of studies. This was possible due to IHT’s incredible relationships and solid reputation as a respectable private hotel school amongst South Africa’s leading hotels. When you graduate you feel that you can take on the world and that is exactly what I did, IHT diploma in hand.’

‘When I found IHT, I immediately knew it was the place for me as the idea of being “just a number” was never what I had in mind for my studies. Valuable knowledge, skills and experiences were gained, of which none is more important than the values I now hold within myself: Determination, Tenacity and Excellence!‘

‘IHT Hotel School is an exceptional college that offers students one-on-one interaction with lecturers (who are absolutely amazing!). I would highly recommend IHT as the subjects that are offered really equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to step into the industry.’

‘Time flies when you’re having fun – 10 years ago I was busy with my final year at IHT Hotel School. Back then I would not have been able to guess the amount of doors that would open for me in my career due to the qualification I received from IHT as well as the contacts I built up through IHT. Looking back, IHT really was a home-away-from-home for me.’

Roelof Hamman

IHT Graduate and Duty Manager for Silversea Cruises
‘As a student, IHT Hotel School has always been synonymous with growth, development and personalized support. They offered theoretical and practical skills that did not only equip me and my fellow students for the International Hospitality Industry but for life in general. It was a place where classmates became lifelong friends and staff were much more than just learning facilitators of the highest quality – they became wise and supportive ‘parents’. Some of my fondest and most formative life experiences were had at IHT Hotel School.’
