Description

About the Program

In seeking to provide the best possible education in the field of tourism, Final International University enjoys two major advantages provided by the founding partners of the University.  The first is the more than forty years of experience of the Final Education Group in providing further and higher education programs all around Turkey; and the second is the vast applied knowledge of the DMG-Akgünler Group in the travel, tourism and hospitality sector, encompassing a consortium of tourism establishments including the largest tour operator in North Cyprus, sea travel, accommodations, and restaurants. 

In today’s diverse world, tourism and hospitality students need not only formal education in the field but also experience with practical training combining the theoretical knowledge gained in classes with workplace practice.  The program of study has been critically examined and developed with experts from the tourism sector and educational professionals to make sure that graduates will have a guaranteed job guaranteed on completion of their studies.

Students in the program are challenged not only through written assessments but through a combination of work placements, assignments, presentations, guest speakers, educational visits, attendance at conferences and workshops, and participation in international competitions.  These opportunities serve the very best interests of our students and enable our department to compare itself with the best hospitality and tourism schools around the world.  One of our lecturers is on the executive board of Eurhodip, an association of top award-winning tourism and hospitality schools, which represent the standards that our department is committed to meeting.

FIU classrooms have the highest levels of technology for student use and the department has labs set up with front office reservations and ticketing programs (Opera, Amadeus, etc.), kitchens with state-of-the-art design and accommodation, congress, resort, and spa facilities that are open learning labs for our students.

The location of the department also provides a unique advantage for tourism students. Çatalköy has the highest tourism bed capacity in Cyprus and consequently is the highest tourism-generating region.  There are historical castles dating back 2500 years. St. Hilarion Castle is known as ‘Snow White’s’ castle from Disney’s magical fairy tale story. Hz. Omer Turbesi meanwhile marks the first place where religious believers set foot to spread the word of Islam. The area is also very rich in flora and fauna as it is on the edge of the ‘Five Finger Mountains’, the habitat of the famous orchids of Cyprus and numerous wild birds. The virgin Alagadi beach is home to the endangered Loggerhead Turtles, and last but not least, Çatalköy and nearby Girne have a thriving social scene with the streets and harbor area housing many bars, cafes, and restaurants, offering students a multi-dimensional social experience when not studying.   

The FIU tourism program promises students learning not only in the classroom, but also in the sector; students will not only receive a degree, but a guaranteed job; and, finally, not only have the experience of being a student in the tourism ‘honey-pot’ area of Çatalköy, Girne, but a lifetime experience that they will enjoy and never forget!
