I am a Chinese woman, and Russian is not my native language. But this did not become an obstacle for me in studying tourism. I studied a lot and learned a lot at the Institute of Hospitality and Tourism. I was very much helped by the teachers. They shared not only fundamental knowledge, but also helped to understand the current problems of the tourist industry. The training program included practice. Practice gave me insights on the main processes in tourism, the experience of organizing tourism activities, working with tourists, valuable material for the thesis and self-confidence as a specialist. If you do not know where to go, where to study tourism, I advise you to choose our Institute.
