Financial Aid

Financial Assistance

The International Hotel School is registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) for the qualifications show as per the registration numbers 2000/HE07/005 and 2009/FE07/077, so most banks will offer student loans to existing clients and their immediate family. Banks will only process an application for a loan on receipt of an acceptance letter from us.  Factors that the bank takes in to consideration are: academic results, credit history, surety and financial records, and any fixed assets which are used as collateral against the loan.  The student, parent/s or sponsor may be requested to meet with bank officials.
