Welcome, International Students!
The Travel Academy welcomes students from around the world. We offer two programs for international students. International students interested in attending The Travel Academy must be approved for an M-1 student visa.
Please Note: Students do not receive the right to work in the United States with the M-1 Student Visa. However, there are numerous travel career opportunities available to you!
- Our 300-Hour Expanded Program is ten weeks and runs Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
- Our 120-Hour Overview is four weeks and runs Monday-Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. International students are not eligible for night, weekend, or virtual (online) classes.
