The Hotel School Career Paths

What our students are saying

I loved the course structure and the size of the campus/student body as it reduced the amount of anxiety I had about starting uni and made it easier to make friends.
Lucy Fist Bachelor of Business in Hotel Management |
As a student of The Hotel School, my best experience so far was the field trip to Hayman Island, Great Barrier Reef. I had a full day to work as an employee and stay in the staff village and a day to experience the resort as a guest. I learnt a lot about life and work at an island resort and had a wonderful time with my classmates. I believe with the school network and reputation, along with the knowledge I gain during my studies, The Hotel School qualification will be my ticket to a successful future in the industry.
Mai Hoang Bachelor of Business in Hotel Management | Current student
The atmosphere at The Hotel School in Australia was always professional and friendly, and many fellow students have become friends who I am still in contact with. Having started my education at a Swiss Hotel School, then coming to The Hotel School I found the teachers committed, the subjects interesting and the balance of study to work a great balance - Bachelor of Business in Hotel Management, graduated 2001
