Stenden South Africa offers a three year Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Hospitality Management, and is the only institution in South Africa to do so. Stenden South Africa is a unique Higher Education Institution in the seaside town of Port Alfred. Established in 2001, we pride ourselves with an impressive track record of top quality higher education. Our pillars of Internationalisation, Problem Based Learning, and Research have positioned us at the top of our game with an impressive list of graduates who are making their way in the industry.
Stenden endorses both a practical and theoretical approach to learning, believing that a balance between the two is the most beneficial approach. Students will experience a critical practical learning experience in their 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of study, by working at a hotel learning facility such as My Pond Hotel for a number of weeks. Real World Learning is the integration of theory and industry (practice) and is extremely important as:
It prepares students for professional life
It actively aids in Problem Based Learning, giving students the opportunity to test theories and techniques in real life situations
It provides students with contacts and assists in networking
Students are exposed to working life in a top, internationally recognised, learning hotel, such as MyPond Hotel or another partnering institution.
