STUDYING AT TAYLOR’S UNIVERSITY IN KUALA LUMPUR

The partnership between the Université Toulouse – Jean Jaurès ISTHIA and Taylor’s University began in 1999. It focused first on establishing the Tourism and Hospitality Catering degrees in Malaysia for the first time, which at the time had been run by ISTHIA for several years. This operation was completed alongside another educational engineering initiative led by the Lycée Hôtelier de Toulouse related to the technical degrees and the BTS in Hospitality and Tourism. Over the years, this cooperation has grown considerably, and several ISTHIA diplomas are now awarded there. Today, more than 500 international students are enrolled on these courses.
