The Tourism, Languages and Cultures major subject offers students an opportunity to gain skills to work with people from other cultures in tourism and related business settings, by providing the necessary language literacy and cultural understanding, and cross-cultural perspectives, while also acquiring a solid grounding in tourism management. Students do not require any particular background to enrol in this subject, and do not need to have studied a language previously. Those students who have existing language skills will be assessed and placed in classes at an appropriate level. Students will have the opportunity to attend an overseas institution for one or two semesters. Students only pay New Zealand fees and can complete the qualification in the usual three-year timeframe. The minimum grade for students to apply for exchange opportunities is a B average. Students may also have the opportunity to gain practical experience in a workplace through internship opportunities. Ask one of the Programme Advisers below about possible internship options.
