“TMC is the sister school of the institution I was studying at in China. I thought I should take this opportunity to broaden my horizon and study overseas. Currently, there is a demand of employees in the hospitality industry worldwide, so I hope I can help to fill this gap. After my higher diploma studies and internship, I will head to TMC’s university partner in Switzerland for further studies. TMC gives me the feeling that it’s more than a school, it’s like family. I really enjoy studying here.”

“I enjoy studying at TMC because of the friendliness of the lecturers. The studies so far and the internship at Holiday Inn Hotel helps me to understand the industry better and to gain more experience. Studying at TMC definitely helped me to grow into a more mature and positive person.”
