    Our Open Days are the ideal oppor­tu­nity for prospec­tive stu­dents to get an idea of the cam­pus envi­ron­ment we offer our stu­dents. It also serves as a taster of how we present classes, with a work­shop included in the Open Day pre­sen­ta­tion. Book­ing essen­tial, so book now to avoid disappointment.


Char­lene Mal­herbe — Skil­pad­vlei, Cater­ing and Func­tions Manager

Ek het my eerste jaar hotelbestuur-​kursus gewen deur die SARIE tyd­skrif. Hierdie kur­sus het deure vir my oopge­maak, werks­geleen­thede moont­lik gemaak en elke droom van my waar gemaak. Ek is 25 en ek is n trotse oud-​IHT student.

Elfrieda Jonker — Devon Val­ley Hotel , Sales Coordinator

I started my hos­pi­tal­ity jour­ney at IHT in 2006 and what a bless­ing it was to be part of a school ded­i­cated in per­son­alised teach­ing and coach­ing us until we were ready to enter the hotel indus­try. After two intense prac­ti­cal semes­ters cov­er­ing all depart­ments, I was per­ma­nently employed.

IHT pro­vided us with all the sup­port in order for us to embrace our pas­sion for the indus­try, travel the world and meet the most amaz­ing people.

I will never for­get the fam­ily I had dur­ing my 3 years’ there, the great friends I made for life, and the extremely fun and bizarre mem­o­ries that were made. “

Freda Fouche

I truly enjoyed my time at IHT. Because we weren’t thou­sands of stu­dents, we could do activ­i­ties and team build­ing together and really gets to know each other. The staff and lec­tur­ers are really sup­port­ive and help you to grow and shine not only aca­d­e­m­i­cally but also personally.

They really try to help you in any sit­u­a­tion and you feel like part of a fam­ily and not just another stu­dent pass­ing through. There are also great oppor­tu­ni­ties for work expe­ri­ence and the knowl­edge you acquire not only the­o­ret­i­cally but also prac­ti­cally is invalu­able. I can hon­estly rec­om­mend this insti­tu­tion to any­one want­ing a exit­ing career in the hos­pi­tal­ity industry!

Michelle Alexan­der — Worces­ter Tourism Asso­ci­a­tion, Tourism Manager

IHT sal altyd ‘n baie belan­grike deel uit­maak in my opvoed­ing en in my lewe. Dit is ‘n won­der­like ‘hands on’ kur­sus waarmee jy baie rigt­ings kan ingaan as jy jou diploma ont­vang het. IHT sal altyd deel wees van my ‘extended family’.

Ayr­ton Hugo — Villa Por­tuguese, Manager

I loved IHT. We all entered IHT with fear in our hearts, but strangers soon turned into friends and fam­ily. The Knowl­edge and Expe­ri­ence gained at IHT has given me count­less opportunities…all dri­ven by ambi­tious lec­tur­ers and a warm smile.

I will trea­sure my IHT fam­ily forever.’

Ste­fan Hugget — Real Imag­ing, Owner Man­ager

Study­ing at IHT was great start to my future and grow­ing into the per­son I am today. It also got my pro­fes­sional life on track and helped me excel in my work. Here we built for­ever last­ing friendships.

Events Coor­di­na­tor at Pep­per Club Lux­ury Hotel & Spa

I feel proud to have been part of IHT Hotel School fam­ily. Lec­tur­ers were approach­able and help­ful, the course itself was well struc­tured and pro­vided a good bal­ance between hard work, fun times and prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in prepa­ra­tion for the real world.’

Nicola Kotze — Bak­en­hof, Guest­house and Events Man­ager

I will never for­get the first day we arrived at IHT. The ori­en­ta­tion week was such a fun-​filled week with the open top bus-​tour through Cape Town, the tast­ing of good food and vis­it­ing some of the most exquis­ite hotels and expe­ri­enc­ing the begin­ning of what was in store for us. In my first year I learned so much, espe­cially that start­ing at the bot­tom is a require­ment for being at the top one day. We were clean­ing toi­lets, mak­ing beds, set­ting tables and the list goes on.

These things were all the things I had to teach my staff in order for me to set the stan­dards become a bet­ter Man­ager and leader to them as I know I have done and learned all the basics myself, and one can’t teach or expect some­one to do some­thing if you are not will­ing to do it yourself.

In my sec­ond year I learned about my favourite sub­ject mar­ket­ing as well as man­age­ment skills. Today I still some­times go back to my books when­ever I start a new project or a mar­ket­ing ven­ture at work. The law of my third year has come in handy so many times with labour laws and espe­cially with liquor license law. Dur­ing my third year in-​service train­ing I started at Bak­en­hof and 5 years later and I am still here. I even started using my third year busi­ness plan for the com­pany and cur­rently we are our sec­ond venue at Bak­en­hof. I am doing what I love.

Dur­ing my 3 years at IHT I made life­long friends, I gained knowl­edge and expe­ri­ences that have helped me grow into the busi­ness women I am today. I have learned how to stay on top of my game in this com­pet­i­tive industry.
