Macao Institute for Tourism Studies (IFTM), established in 1995, is a public institution of higher education that falls under the governance of the Secretary for Social Affairs and Culture of the Macao Special Administrative Region Government, People’s Republic of China. It is the first tourism education institution certified by the United Nations World Tourism Organization’s Themis TedQual (Tourism Education Quality) system.
Some IFTM Bachelor Degree graduates’ qualification has been recognised as Level 5 under Hong Kong Qualifications Framework (i.e. having completed a bachelor degree equivalent to a Hong Kong bachelor degree).
According to the memorandum announced by the China Education Bureau in May 2008 regarding “the Hong Kong/Macao higher education qualification and the degree certificates received by the Mainland students”, it was required that mainland students must study full-time for their Bachelor Degree, Master Degree and Doctorate Degree programmes and the period of stay in Hong Kong/Macao must not be shorter than 50% of the entire curriculum.
In the third year, students may have the opportunity to go to China (including Hong Kong and Chinese Taiwan), Australia, Dubai, Germany, Greece, Iran, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Portugal, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States, among other places or stay in Macao for a semester of internship. More information is available at ie@IFTM.
Owing to the international nature of tourism careers, the Institute has established protocols and exchange programmes with overseas higher education institutes. More information is available at ie@IFTM.
