Faculty of Tourism and International Communications broadens geography of its international cooperation
On the initiative of the Rector of Uzhhorod National University Professor Volodymyr Smolanka and the management of the Faculty of Tourism and International Communications, a cooperation agreement with a four-star wellness hotel SKI & WELLNESS RESIDENCE DRUŽBA ****, located in Jasna ski resort in the Slovak Tatras, was signed. At the official meeting, the Dean of the Faculty associate professor Natalia Habchak and her deputy associate professor Ruslana Zhovtani stressed that the training of students in the specialty "Tourism" had been conducted for more than 10 years and "Hotel and restaurant business" for two years. Students acquire thorough knowledge for building successful careers in tourism and master foreign languages while studying at the faculty.
It is possible to withstand the growing competition in the area of hospitality only by providing tourists with high quality services, which can be provided only by highly skilled personell. Given these trends, students do not only master foreign languages such as English, German, French, Slovak and Spanish in order to create common and professional language competence to ensure their efficcient communication in academic and professional environment, but also expand the geography of their internships.
Under the agreement, students of the Faculty of Tourism and International Communications will undertake internship at the four-star hotel SKI & WELLNESS RESIDENCE DRUŽBA **** from December 2016. They will be provided with free accommodation and meals. Transportation costs will also be covered.
We hope that this internship will help students of the Faculty of Tourism and International Communications to improve their professional skills and help them to find jobs in the area of tourism, which will bring them not only professional, but also financial sucess.
