If you are looking for employment in the continually evolving tourism industry, studying in Queenstown could provide you with the qualifications you need to secure your dream job.
Set in the picturesque surrounds of tourism-mecca Queenstown, SIT’s campus has several qualification options for students looking to complete study prior to embarking on a career in either tourism or hospitality.
Diploma in Hotel Management graduate Priyam Sharma is now working as a Night Manager at New Zealand’s first smart hotel in Queenstown - mi-pad Hotel.

“The SIT programme heightened my motivation and created confidence in my own abilities,” he says.
