“The shorter duration of the degree programme stands out to me. Moreover, the lecturers are patient and supportive. My favourite subject is Innovation in Tourism and Hospitality Management because it pushes me to think out of the box. Through the practical modules, I gained skills and knowledge; and improved my confidence. TMC provided many opportunities of joining extracurricular activities. I was the member of student club, nEbO ambassador and student leader of ABSS-TMC Youth Wing. I’ve enhanced my critical thinking skills, interpersonal and communication skills through organising campus events.”

“TMC offers good quality education with affordable school fees. Teaching staff is friendly and very thoughtful. They gave us opportunities to perform and helped improve the learning proficiency of students. As a student club member, I enjoyed the fun school activities. Through this course, I was able to find out what my interests are and I’m sure it helps me to decide my future role in the hotel industry.”
