Each student will again go through a six-month industrial attachment at hotels. This is yet another opportunity to display the learning evidence not only in class but also in practical performance. During and before finishing the industrial attachment, each intern will be evaluated to determine the extent of learning and qualifications of such intern.
The student is expected to gain the confidence to be fully employed at this stage.SDH emphasizes a lot on an internship as internship experiences are key to building exposure as a student or recent graduate. Employers are much more likely to hire someone with internships and work experience – particularly in a competitive industry like the hospitality and tourism. SDH has strong industry linkages with leading hotel chains, integrated resorts as well as top F&B establishments. Our lecturers keep connected with our students and check on them while they embark on their internship journey.
