HM230 Junior Practicum (SO1)

The practicum workload is intended to help undergraduates apply their formal education in a real work environment.  By following the instruction given in the training logbook (with an emphasis on working skills), students must undertake a 300-hour practicum in various areas of the tourism and hospitality industry.  These areas may be in travel services, tour operations, government agencies in tourism and hospitality, front office, sales and marketing, and other relevant areas of exposure based on specialization/training receive in school.  Close contact with a workplace supervisor/mentor is needed as students must produce both a training report, with an emphasis on problem solving and supervisor’s evaluations.  Attendance and participation are also required at the practicum seminars held at the start and finish of the successful practicum.
