On Wednesday 19 August, The Visa Centre welcomed two representatives from Pacific International Hotel Management School (PIHMS), a hospitality school located in New Plymouth, New Zealand.
Dean McCallum, Marketing Manager from New Plymouth, New Zealand and Sraddha Mansata, India Admissions Officer, from Mumbai, came and met with our CEO, consultants and interested students.
PIHMS offers unique world-class hotel management courses, including:
- International Diploma in Hotel Management – Level 6
- Bachelor of Applied Hospitality & Tourism Management – Level 7
- Postgraduate Diploma in Hotel Management Level 8 and
- Master of Hotel Management Level 9
These all offer pathways to New Zealand residence (migration).
A unique point about their courses is that they offer a guaranteed paid industry placement as part of their course. This offers students valuable full time work experience in the hospitality industry in any part of New Zealand, while being paid, and the institute assists in obtaining the relevant visa conditions.
Students live in their institute’s hotel, run by their hospitality students who manage the food and beverages, housekeeping and management. Their student accommodation was rated as four stars plus by Qualmark, the highest level accredited to an educational institution.
PIHMS offers a unique integrated experience and plays an important part in preparing students for their journey into real hotels.
The Visa Centre is now an agent of PIHMS and has successfully obtained student visas for students to study there and at other institutes. We can assist interested students in applying to study there or anywhere in New Zealand. Please contact us for further information.
