Hungary

There were 87 students from ten schools enrolled into GTTP-supported travel and tourism courses in Hungary in the 2019-20 school year.

The programme, for 14-18-year-olds, requires students to invest 220 classroom hours, usually over two years, with a strong emphasis on exposure to the workplace. Around 500 companies offer internships to our students. For teachers, there is 30 hours of teacher training plus an annual conference.

Student team work and student research is a key requirement of all GTTP programmes. In 2019, the research topic that won the national competition was about a music flash mob in Szeged, Southern Hungary.  Students went to the event which saw more than 400 musicians performing together, conducted interviews with participants and organisers and prepared a lively presentation for the global student meeting in Nice.
