NOTES:

Some electives may not be offered every session.

Each course lasts 45 hours, except for two courses taken during the internships (30 hours each).

The ITHQ reserves the right to offer courses in French or English based on instructor availability. Note that approximately 60% of our courses are offered in French and 40% are offered in English.

Practical experience

Two internship placements at a host company that are paid or unpaid (depending on the destination), one of which is international (675 hours over a period of 5 months each, i.e. 20 weeks out of a total of 26)

Students must look for their own internship opportunities to find establishments that will let them get the most out of their experience based on their goals and background. The ITHQ will support you to make sure your internship experience is tailored to your skills and goals.

The ITHQ’s hotel partnership program and many members in its network will help facilitate your searches. After their training, students who have proven themselves in the workplace will be in a better position to access manager training programs and pursue their careers at major hotels or other types of establishments.

Alternating work-study (program)

Internships are mandatory for all of our regular programs. Specific rules have been established for each one. Any special conditions that an applicant is known to have upon enrolling in a program (health status, family situation, criminal record, etc.) may limit options for internship placements and job offers. Under no circumstances may these conditions be used to obtain an exemption to the rules for completing the program’s internship requirement. Note that you may need a visa for your internship, which may limit access to some destinations.

NOTE: Internships in Canada are always paid.

 

 

Dress code

The ITHQ uniform or professional (french only) attire is required at all times. All students must adhere to basic professional image rules.
