“At Royal Roads University, you’re not just a number – your opinion is valued.”

“I was drawn to the BA in International Hotel Management course at Royal Roads University because, in addition to being well recognized in the industry, the accelerated, one-year format allowed me to return to work quickly. The actual coursework and learning experiences at RRU are applicable to working in the hospitality industry, readying students for their futures. The materials we studied are current and relevant; the instructors and guest speakers are experts in their field (for example, I was taught by an HR director and a hotel GM); and the networking opportunities, gained through such avenues as international internships and off-island conferences, were key to future career development.

At Royal Roads University, you’re not just a number – your opinion is valued. This school feels smaller and homier than others, and your instructors are always willing to help. Whether you feel more comfortable emailing, sending a text message or sitting down and chatting, the instructors are approachable, encouraging and communicative. And rounding out the learning experience is the campus grounds ­– a beautiful space with plenty of peacocks and sustainable buildings. The presence of Hatley Castle, the setting for X-Men, was quite fun, too. I mean, who doesn’t want to drop by Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters?”
