Popular Programmes

The Higher Certificate program is popular among those who have no prior experience in the Hotel industry and want to discover about the day-to-day operations of the Hotel. The main attraction of this course is that it has a practicum element where you will have the opportunity to experience real-life operations in areas of Front Office (1 day) and Housekeeping (1/2 day) in one of Ascott's serviced residences.

Those who have completed the Higher Certificate course, usually advance to the Diploma course. The Diploma program is very popular among middle managers, mid-career switchers and Hotel employees who seek certification. The modules offered in the Diploma program aims to equip you with practical skills and underlying knowledge of a Supervisor/Manager in a Hotel/lodging.
