Course Curriculum Overview :

I love wandering and traveling a lot. So I thought tourism matches my course, so for the life of travel, I chose Tourism. Faculties are good, but few I feel they don’t have deep knowledge on the subject. But every staff encourages us so well. Term exams were conducted timely and the difficulty level was moderate.

Internships Opportunities :

Our department always encouraged us to join internships as many as possible. We get internships from top travel companies in the town. Usually, we don’t get a stipend, very rarely we get depending on the companies. We get hands-on experience in the industry.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Very affordable compared to other courses. Per semester costs around 6k to 10k. Since I didn’t apply for a scholarship or job, I don’t know about it. So I don’t have any idea about it. But I attended few internships, where I got a stipend up to 7k.
