Educational vision

Best practice

Education at NHTV is strongly practice-oriented. The theory you study is applied to practice directly. Other practical components include projects, skills training courses, company visits, work placements and graduation assignments. Many lecturers and supervisors hold part-time positions in the industry, and as such, they are perfectly capable of updating students on what’s happening in the world of work.

Inspired by you!

Developments in the tourism industry are closely monitored, what does the industry want and what do you want? You can make your own contribution to the design of education at the Academy for Tourism. Within the possibilities of your study programme, you can make your own choices and decisions. You shape your personal path of study and receive sound coaching in the process. You are encouraged to get the best out of yourself.


To be able to operate as a professional, you need knowledge, but knowledge alone is not enough. It is about a mix of knowledge, attitude and skills. This is referred to as competencies. So, education focuses on your total development as a person. Key competencies are collaborating, communication skills, and organisational skills. The Academy for Tourism has established the competencies for the study programmes in consultation with the tourism industry.
