The university’s highly flexible model allows students to balance their desire for quality higher education while maintaining work and family commitments. The University, having a long history of excellence in education that goes back to 1940 consistently receives high ratings for the quality of their education, student satisfaction, campus safety, and small class sizes.
The academic collaboration between Royal Roads University and Munnar Catering College, the first of its kind in India, is designed to foster cooperation in teaching and research in the fields of Hospitality and Tourism Management Studies. With this association the students of Munnar Catering College will get a unique opportunity to complete their initial period of two years in Munnar Catering College (OR 1 year at Emirates MCC University, UAE & 1 year at Munnar Catering College ) followed by their final two years in Canada enabling them to get an internationally accepted 4 year BA Degree - in Global Tourism Management and BA in International Hotel Management from the renowned Royal Roads University. These students are eligible to get a permit to work as interns in reputed hospitality institutions in Canada during their studies. That means they can earn while they learn.
Canada has become a highly sought after destination for permanent immigration from India and neighbouring countries thanks to its superb career and employment prospects, high standard of living, political stability, freedom, and opportunities for family and children. But many find it difficult due to the complexity of the system. For them admission at Munnar Catering College for the specific course can be a sure passport for entry to Canada, as a result of the new collaboration with Royal Roads University. Canadian “study permit laws” allow International students to work while they study and may also let them apply for permanent residency for them and their spouse after graduation. In addition, a fulltime student in a government college / university and having a valid study permit is eligible to get an open work permit for their spouse too for the same period of time as the study permits, which means they do not need a job offer or a labour market opinion from Service Canada. For qualified students having valid study permit, there is every opportunity for them and their spouse for getting a job in Canada during their studies. This academic collaboration offers a rare opportunity for aspiring and qualified students for getting an international qualification and exposure making them eligible to accept challenging assignments in Canada, Europe or elsewhere at an exceptionally low cost.
