Our International Cohort

In 2002, TMIS started receiving international students from Asia-Pacific. This is in line with our corporate mission to provide tourism education and training to students from other countries. Tourism is a lucrative industry which many countries are competing to develop. This has opened up and will continue to breed more career opportunities in the industry in Singapore and around the world.

With 27 years of experience in the travel and tourism industry, TMIS is more than equipped to provide training for these international students and staff of the travel industry.

With our students coming from Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Korea and China, we have been called a 'Mini-United Nations'. To ensure our continuing value and relevance, TMIS will adopt a more regional perspective in our strategic goals and establish ourselves as the leading tourism training institute in the region.
