Why SAIT?

No matter your program, you’ll gain a competitive advantage with our innovative approach to hands-on learning.

Our instructors are leaders and trailblazers in the industry, showcasing their diverse backgrounds and wealth of experience.

Depending on your path, you’ll apply your knowledge in one of our unique live classrooms, from fine dining at the Highwood Kitchen + Bar to trip-planning at Destinations, North America’s only student-run travel centre. 

Our strong industry partnerships ensure we stay relevant in this dynamic, fast-paced industry.

Together, these elements create an education that will prepare you to work in hospitality and lead in it too.

I received a lot of positive feedback from instructors on my approach to hard work and leadership skills. Recognizing that I did have the skillset needed, from cooking to customer service, I really saw how far I'd come over the course of the program.

Oki, Âba wathtech, Danit'ada, Tawnshi, Hello.

SAIT is located on the traditional territories of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of Treaty 7 which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Îyârhe Nakoda of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Goodstoney.

We are situated in an area the Blackfoot tribes traditionally called Moh’kinsstis, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River. We now call it the city of Calgary, which is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
