The best higher schools in these areas are located in Europe, and the most prestigious educational institutions - in the homeland of this industry, in Switzerland .

The main advantage of studying in the tourist direction is connected with its practical orientation.

Conducting internships for students at universities of hospitality is given special attention: testing of acquired knowledge takes place in conditions that are as close to real as possible.

The cost of teaching hotel business in Europe and Switzerland: list, prices, rating

The price of educational services in the tourism sector will depend directly on the particular educational institution located in Switzerland or in other European countries. In addition, each institution has its own points included in the indicated cost of educational services. For example, in the Irish college they are directly involved in the educational process, and other organizational issues (accommodation, meals, administrative fees, visa, air tickets, etc.) will require additional costs. But in the Swiss universities, which we described earlier, the price includes all the points related to the comfortable placement of the student. In this case, the student will additionally pay only the visa and air tickets in both directions.

However, studying on specialties related to tourism, young people can cover part of the costs of getting an education. This will help mandatory production training, which is almost always paid. In addition, scholarship programs and educational grants are widely distributed at European universities - both local residents and foreign students can claim them.
