Tourism and Hospitality

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

A country situated to the southern tip of Africa, South Africa, has a rich culture that you will never get enough of while touring or studying here. The languages here include Afrikaner and English as well as Dutch. The campus life of the vast South African University, University of Johannesburg or any other university will be mind blowing. You will love interacting with the Bantus here and the tropical climate of the region.
