Hospitality is the art of serving others professionally with the goal of making them feel comfortable. Hospitality is essentially the relationship between the guest and the host, where the host receives the guest with courteousness and good will.

Hospitality training is required for those wanting to become hotel managers, tourist guides, guest entertainers, waiters, bartenders etc. Students studying hospitality and service based courses at top institutes in New Zealand will have practical hands-on exposure to the real-world industry itself. This makes them invaluable to the hospitality industry.

We at Great Nation NZ have compiled a list of hospitality and service courses available to students wanting to study in New Zealand. We have segregated them according to the institute offering the course, and the level of the course.
