It’s an exciting time to be a CTH student with CTH commencing a new partnership with the UK’s very own, Plymouth University.
The CTH-Plymouth University partnership will give CTH students the opportunity to gain a UK undergraduate degree with Plymouth University. This opportunity will allow students to enhance their existing skills by training with one of the top universities under the age of 50 (according to Times Higher Education) and give international students an opportunity to study abroad. Through student’s efforts they will earn a BA (Bachelor of Arts) thereby gaining credibility within the industry.
This opportunity is available to students who have successfully completed the CTH Level 5 Diploma in either Hospitality or Tourism as well as having a 6.0 IELTS score (with no component element below 5.5 and subject to application). However, students with a score of 5.5 or above will be able to attend a short summer programme at an additional fee in order to reach the required level. This degree opportunity is set to begin immediately.
