College SA offers the following two tourism courses:
Tourism management is a course that focuses on the management and administrative aspects of tourism. Students can expect to learn more about managing tourist attractions, travelling arrangements and accommodation. The course content focuses specifically on the essential business skills one needs when working within the tourism industry, equipping students with the knowledge and expertise to deal with all human resources-related issues within this field.
The travel and tourism course is a course that you can consider if you like travelling or anything that falls into the sector of tourism. If you are not someone who can sit behind a desk all day, the hands-on-jobs such as being a tour guide or diving instructor are definitely for you. If you are a quiet person who tends to be shy in front of groups of people, there are administrative or marketing jobs in travel and tourism that will accommodate your personality type.
Where to study tourism?
There are a lot of travel and tourism courses in South Africa that you can take a look at. But which type of course or way of studying suits you best? College SA offers the tourism courses via distance learning. This means that College SA does not have a campus, therefore you have no official classes. No early nights because of that class at 08:00. It also means that you are able to work part time or full time and still be able to complete your assignment at your own pace. This is not unique to our institute but what sets us apart from other institutes is, amongst other things, our easy payment plans. If you are fast learner and finish your course early, you stop paying. And if you want to take a break from the studies and continue at a later stage, you stop paying. Thus you only pay when you study.
