“Contemplating on which career path to pursue, I gave in and decided to follow my passion; traveling. I was in search for a Travel and Tourism school in Toronto that offered a diploma program in an intimate class setting, with a well rounded curriculum. Meeting Louise at Travel College Canada and taking a tour of the facility, I felt certain that the International Travel & Tourism program was what I was looking for. During the course of my program, I was taught everything I needed to know about the travel industry.
From Poland to the Czech Republic and all the way across to Japan, I made new friends with my classmates who have traveled from around the globe to study at Travel College Canada. Being in a multicultural environment, I learned about each student’s own unique culture.
I benefited from having extensively travelled teachers, which I gained insight on virtually every country in the world. With their extensive travel and work experience, I feel inspired by the faculty at Travel College Canada and confident to begin my career in the travel industry.”
