Hotel School celebrates infrastructure upgrades

The NUST Hotel School recently unveiled a plaque to honour the Spanish government for contributing to the construction of the second phase of the Hotel.

The collaboration between the University and the Spanish government dates back to 2008, when a proposal by the Olof Palme International Foundation (FIOP), and the Hotel School was presented to the Joint Equipment Aid Fund Commission (JEAF).

The proposal intended to achieve the extension of the Hotel School buildings and foster research and exchange programmes, amongst others.

The proposal received a favourable response and an implementation agreement was signed in Spain, in 2008.

The cooperation agreement encouraged the development of Namibia’s tourism sector skills through the upgrading of the hotel training facilities.

Her Excellency Figuerola Santos, the Ambassadress of Spain to Namibia, commended the state-of-the-art infrastructure and the manner in which students are benefiting from the facilities.

“We are now developing a strong cooperation programme between NUST and several Spanish universities focusing on areas like tourism, of course, but also energy, cybersecurity, geo-spatial sciences and technology, entrepreneurship and education,” she added.

Dr Tjama Tjivikua, the NUST Vice-Chancellor, highlighted some of the tangible achievements that were attained through the collaboration. These include the increase of the hotel rooms from six to 20, the traveling of more than six students to Spain and of which two completed their Master’s degrees in Tourism at the University of Barcelona.

The event was concluded with a handover of a collection of Spanish literature from the Embassy which will be displayed in the Library. Spanish language courses are offered at the University’s Department of Education and Languages, in the Faculty of Human Sciences.
