The Tourism industry is one of the most important sectors in the Irish economy, employing in the region of 230,000 people nationwide and encompassing culture, gastronomy, heritage and hospitality. It is a dynamic and exciting industry that offers employment opportunities on a global scale. A qualification from the Galway International Hotel School will provide you with a passport to quality employment in Ireland or enable you to travel the world and continue to learn and build on the knowledge and skills acquired here.
Galway International Hotel School has established working partnerships with many industry stakeholders. Our programmes are developed in collaboration with these partners, ensuring our courses are up-to-date and relevant. This, combined with interactive and engaged learning, field trips, labs, masterclasses and industry visits, ensures that you are fully prepared for employability.
Another excellent resource available in our school is the LINKS office. This team works with our industry partners and students. They will guide all students when preparing for work placement and in many cases will connect you directly with potential industry partners. In addition, they organise other events to support graduate opportunities, alumni and visits from schools to GMIT.
Heritage related courses are available at both our Galway & Mayo Campuses. Study Heritage at our Galway campus and History & Geography and Culture & Environment on our Mayo Campus.
