IHT Hotel School Application Form 2020-2021
About IHT Hotel School
IHT opened its doors for the first time in 1998 with a mere 7 students! When IHT Hotel School became a strategic partner of Regency, Institute of TAFE in South Australia in 2003, their Advanced Diploma in Hospitality was offered with 20 students enrolled.
Ever since our small beginning in 1998, we have not only grown in student numbers and infrastructure but have also ensured that the vocational education and training offered is recognised and quality assured in South Africa. With the input of our excellently qualified and experienced academic staff members, our learning programme was adapted and enhanced to meet the standards required by the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC) of the Council on Higher Education of South Africa. The learning programme was accredited by the HEQC in March 2008. IHT Hotel School is further also registered as a Private Higher Education Institution by the Department of Higher Education and Training with the preregistration number 2008/HE07008.
