Welcome All To Our Department!

    My name is Sophea Tieng. I hold BA in Tourism from National University of Management and Masters Degree in Tourism Management from New Zealand. Currently, I am Head of Tourism Department at Saint Paul Institute. In our institute, we offer tourism management skills that will ensure that students will be able to work in the world class hotels, organizations and other private sector. We have experienced and skilled lecturers who have been educated both inside and outside of Cambodia. Furthermore, students will have a chance to study and learn from different people from the industry through multiple tourism seminar series and study tours to tourist destinations in Cambodia.

Besides providing good quality educational and life skills, we have also partnered with many institutions that when graduate, students get more chances in jobs placement or internship opportunities. We thrive to ensure the quality of teaching and necessary supporting materials. Students who graduate from Saint Paul Institute will get jobs once they graduate from the institute.

Good luck!
