With a whole range of activities, the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi (URL) is welcoming incoming students who will take part in different tourism courses from the Bachelor Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management this second semester.
More specifically, it is welcoming 23 students from 9 different countries, including the Netherlands, Argentina, the United States, Japan or Hungary. These students come from partner universities with which HTSI has collaboration agreements, and who help to promote the internationalization of the School: one of our main strategic goals.
Emma Erickson of the University of San Francisco explains: “the reason I decided to come was HTSI’s hospitality program, highly recommended by my university and by two of my friends from San Francisco, who studied here in the past. In fact, coming to Barcelona and HTSI was one of the goals I had when I started studying tourism.”
Along the same lines, Georg Hrdlicka of Modul University de Viena, indicated that the recommendations of his university and several of his friends who had studied at HTSI are what pushed him to come.
“I have never studied tourism”, explains Ayana Mori of the International Christian University, ““But I knew I wanted to come to Barcelona, one of the most important tourist destinations. In my case, it was IES Abroad that recommended this school to me”.
It is worth noting that the “Welcome Days” program for incoming students includes, among other activities, the “Barcelona Experience” tour guided by HTSI professor, Xavier Puertas.
This year, in the first and second semester, HTSI welcomed 39 incoming students from universities such as Taylor’s University Malaysia, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Johnson & Wales University, Howard University, Miami University o University of West London.
How can I be an incoming student?
Incoming students must be named by their universities of origin in order to study one or two semesters at HTSI. Once the collaborating university confirms the nomination of the selected student, the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management Sant Ignasi directly contacts the incoming student to assist them with matters like their arrival in Barcelona.
Two types of mobility are available to exchange students:
- ERASMUS + Mobility:if the incoming student’s university has an Erasmus agreement with HTSI, a university exchange can be organized. Ramon Llull University is the Holder of an Erasmus charter for higher education.
- Study abroad mobility:if the incoming student’s university has a bilateral agreement with HTSI, a university exchange can be organized.
