Learn online from the comfort of your own home with Canadian Tourism College!

Currently we are offering our programs in a virtual classroom environment. Pending further updates from the provincial government, programs may include a combination of on-campus and online learning experiences in September 2020.

New students will begin their classes online and may progress to on-campus learning when it is deemed safe to do so by health officials and the government of Canada.

  • Connect with other people and form new friendships. We have found that our students have become a great support system for one another during this time. Online classes offer not only an educational experience but also an opportunity to connect with other people.
  • Improve time management skills and develop self-discipline.
  • No commute! Stay in and enjoy classes from the safety and comfort of your own home.

When will in-class instruction resume?

Our number one priority is the health and safety of our students and staff. Beginning this September 2020, programs may include a combination of on-campus and online learning experiences, depending on the program. (Pending any updates from the provincial government). Over the spring and summer, we have been following the guidelines set by health officials which have required us to close the doors to both of our campuses and offer courses virtually. The situation is constantly evolving and we will provide students with updates in a timely manner.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming students back on-campus again!

Are there scholarships or tuition credits available? How do I get started?

Yes! We are giving back to the community! We have scholarships available from $3,000 to $5,000, depending on the program. Request more information to learn more about our scholarship availability and how to get started.

Testimonials

Current student, Clara J.

What are you enjoying most about attending classes online?

I’m thankful for the opportunity to see so many positive faces and interact with a group of people who share similar professional goals.

Do you think there are any advantages to attending virtual classes? If so, what are they?
Yes. I live locally to the Surrey Campus, but I think the online platform created an opportunity for some of my peers who live across Canada to join. Additionally, it saves me time and gas money as I don’t have to commute. In a fast advancing society, online interviews, meetings, classes are becoming more prevalent; attending classes online are a great way to become comfortable with professional virtual interactions.

See what our Tourism students have been up to in their online class!

Students were asked to create a full itinerary for a short tour, come up with the costs, and figure out the price for the tour after markup. They could pick any attraction in the world and video themselves as a “site guide”, and were allowed to wear an article of clothing which might represent the area or attraction. Check out this video for a presentation by Kim, as she takes us though a Puerto Prinsesa Underground River Tour.
