The college offers courses specifically designed for young students aiming to work within the tourism industry. The curated certificate and diploma courses span five programme areas – tourism, hospitality, retail business, events and culinary arts, offering a pathway for students to achieve professional success through world-class academic offerings.
Earlier this year, DCT and Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU), one of the oldest and largest higher education institutions in the UK, announced a new pathway for Dubai College of Tourism students. With the new pathway, students who graduate with a DCT Advanced Diploma and the required GPA, will be able to continue and obtain a ‘top-up degree’ as a student of LJMU and graduate with a BA (Hons) from the highly accredited UK institution.
Aiming to bridge the gap between in-house training and a full bachelor’s degree, and as a vocational college, DCT focuses on providing students with practical experience to complement their theoretical knowledge. As part of Dubai Tourism, DCT is uniquely positioned to provide students access to a number of high profile city stakeholders from large hotel groups, to retail stores and restaurateurs.
Placing emphasis on real-world skills, internships are a crucial element of DCT’s courses, as they empower students with the confidence and experience they need to succeed as the city’s next generation of tourism leaders.
