What our students are saying

The qualification I will receive on completion will definitely give me the edge to achieve my career goals.
Carlton Nevis Master of International Tourism and 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.
