Stenden South Africa uses a unique teaching technique known as Problem Based Learning (PBL). PBL involves a blend of lectures and self study, where students are tasked with solving a carefully chosen real life industry-related problem. Individually researched solutions are presented to the group under the guidance of a lecturer. Groups are small, usually 15 students, allowing a more personal learning experience. As a teaching and learning strategy, PBL helps develop critical thinking and creative skills, improves problem-solving skills, increases motivation and helps students transfer knowledge gained to new situations.
Hospitality Management students are able to travel while they study! Grand Tour allows students to study at any of our international campus sites: The Netherlands, Bali, Qatar or Thailand.
