The Sri Lanka Institute of Tourism & Hotel Management (SLITHM) is the only Government approved premier Institute in Sri Lanka, which was established by the Government in 1964 to train young men and women in the complex field of Hospitality and Travel Industry, and is managed by The Ministry of Tourism Development and Christian Religious Affairs. Further, in order to facilitate students island-wide, provincial schools have been set up in Anuradhapura, Bandarawela, Pallekelle, Koggala, Ratnapura, and Kurunegala.


Following the ever-expanding tourism sector in the country with developments in the travel & hospitality industry, the Sri Lanka Institute of Tourism & Hotel Management provides a sound professional training to cater for the fast developing needs of the local and international hotel and tourism industries with the best trained and most highly motivated management professionals. During the first 10 years, the focus was to train personnel for the top and middle management position in the industry, supplemented with a programme of short courses at the craft level, which provided the manpower for the various departments in the hospitality trade.

Over the years SLITHM has fine-tuned its programmes to meet the specific needs of Sri Lanka’s and Asia’s changing industry-wide market needs and new schemes of training are introduced frequently with opportunities to specialize in industry-specific areas. The scheme allows students to be more flexible in the choice of training and provides multiple entry-exit points. It also recognizes prior learning, which benefits those who have gained hands-on experience in the industry and who wish to acquire further knowledge through a sound professional qualification.
