  • 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 50% of our courses are offered in French and 50% are offered in English.
  • Students may submit their written assignments and write their exams in English or French as they wish, regardless of the language of instruction of the course.

Practical experience

Alternating work-study program:

  • 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)
  • Different applications at the ITHQ’s commercial facilities along with management simulations, meetings with hospitality professionals, industry tours, etc.

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.


  • 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.


Please note that due to COVID-19, some or all of the internship or the objectives of the internship may change. Depending on the guidelines of the Canadian government and the authorities of the host country, the international internship may take place in Canada.
