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 One&Only Hayman Resort. 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
Australia is a great place to study and work in the hospitality industry. It is a melting pot of cultures and a wonderful experience for international students. I chose this course because of its focus on the industry and its association with Mulpha means we have a great access to a range of hotels. I have been impressed with the range of subjects available and my career opportunities after graduating.
