02 October 2013: DIT’s School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology has signed an agreement that will provide access to the Hong Kong educational market.
A partnership has been developed between the School and the Irish International Hotel and Catering School (IIHCS), which will allow progression for students from Hong Kong who are studying at IIHCS in Galway.
Currently, these students can only complete courses up to Level 6 FETAC but will now have the opportunity to progress onto courses offered by DIT in this field.
At the signing of the agreement, Mr Kam Chin, Director of IIHCS said he welcomed this important milestone in developing a long and fruitful relationship with DIT. Dr Frank Cullen, Head of the School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology, also welcomed the agreement as it provides access to the Chinese market.
The IIHCS has formed the Ireland International Education Centre (Hong Kong) with the backing of the Irish Chinese Society Galway in Ireland, which is involved in organising a visit of secondary school principals from the region to the Irish educational institutions in December 2013. An ‘Irish Week’ is also being planned in several Hong Kong secondary schools in January 2014.
