Dubai College of Tourism (DCT), an institution established by Dubai’s Department of Tourism & Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism), has opened its new, purpose-built college facility at Dubai Tourism’s headquarters, located in One Central, in the Dubai World Trade Centre area.
The premises will cater to students studying towards their Certificate, Diploma and Applied Bachelors programmes across five core disciplines: Retail, Tourism, Hospitality, Culinary Arts, and Events. With the capacity to accommodate up to 150 students, the capped class sizes ensure the students benefit from the interactive and practical focus of a vocational education.
The facilities offer a contemporary, urban design, with spacious study spaces, a multi-purpose auditorium, a dedicated student lounge, and various break-out zones. In addition, Culinary Arts students will enjoy access to state-of-the-art kitchen facilities to conduct their practical sessions with selected industry partners.
DCT is a vocational education college that is accredited by the Knowledge & Human Development Authority (KHDA), allowing students to gain both academic knowledge and on-the-job experience. With a specially curated curriculum that meets the needs of both students and future employers, DCT courses move away from the traditional academic university programmes to provide a hands-on approach – from collaborative initiatives with industry partners to immersive site visits, year-round guest lectures, and DCT’s active internship programme which has been specifically designed to ensure students excel once they enter the industry.
