PIHMS provides a safe and friendly environment which replicates the hospitality industry very well. The things you learn and do represent the key skills you require to succeed in the hospitality industry. The best thing about PIHMS is the environment it provides you to learn in, the lecturers who are there to teach you and the people you live and work alongside. To me, PIHMS was everything I had hoped for from a tertiary institution.

The thoroughness of the training that you receive at PIHMS makes you absolutely ready to handle the intricacies of your first job in hospitality. The best thing about my job is serving guests. It gives me a high when someone desperately needs something and I can find a solution for the problem calmly and effectively.
