Our International Cohort

In 2002, TMIS started receiving international students from across the Asia-Pacific and the neighbouring region, especially from China, Korea, Japan. India, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. This is in line with our corporate mission to provide transnational tourism education and training to students from other countries. Tourism is an important industry which many countries are keen to develop. Singapore with its strategic geographical location,convergence of East-West cultures and exposure to cutting-edge management concepts and technology, has a distinct advantage to become a centre for overseas study especially in the tourism and travel industry.

With our students coming from China, Korea, Japan, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Myanmar and Cambodia and from many other countries help to enhance TMIS' stated goal to establish itself as a leading transnational travel and tourism education and training institute par excellence in the region.
