Another Record Student Intake at ITS

Another Record Student Intake at ITS

1

It’s been three weeks since the start of the Institute of Tourism Studies’(ITS) academic year. The scholastic year 2021-2022 saw a total of over 750 students enrolled on full-time basis, which remains at par with 2020 and 2019, and more than previous years. Moreover, a marked increase was registered in part-time courses, varying from Higher National Diploma in Tourist Guiding to Master’s Degrees. The Certificate level programmes registered a record intake when compared to previous years.

This manifests that there has been an increase in students who have just finished their secondary education and have chosen to pursue a career in Tourism and Hospitality.There has been an average of a 29% increase from 2020, 7% from 2019 and 41% from 2018 of students who have enrolled with the Institute at this level.

The Foundation programme also received a high number of applications, more than the year 2020 and 2018, and at par to 2019.In spite of the fact that a 5% drop was seen from previous years due to COVID-19 travelling restrictions, ITS still registered a substantial number of foreign students coming from 43 different nations which makes up 21.7% of the total students. Some of these students will be following their lectures online, due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions.

This is thanks to the heavy investment in the ITS technological infrastructure, which will also be used by other students, as hybrid classes may be used when needed. Although the past year and a half has been difficult, especially on the Tourism and Hospitality Industry, the future looks bright and yet again it is being proven that the students and youngsters have great faith and interest in the industry.
