The Study Abroad program offers you the opportunity to study for 1 or 2 sessions in Australia and gain credit back to your home institution.

Program Options

The undergraduate program is designed so that students complete a single study session of academic study at The Hotel School, followed by an optional session of internship.

The internship session is offered through The Hotel School with a tourism/hospitality organisation at a range of locations around Australia. During the internship, students are provided with advice and academic supervision by their lecturers. Ongoing support and feedback on career development are also available with access to the University’s employment and career information website.

Alternatively, you can choose to complete the single session of academic study only, and you have the option to complete 3 or 4 units of study.

We also offer a postgraduate program where you can complete a single session of academic study (3 units of study).

In addition to undertaking the minimum 3 academic units, it is mandatory for all Study Abroad students to complete the Work Ready Program if they are undertaking the internship as part of the Study Abroad full program. This Work Ready Program is a complimentary add-on for these students.

The Work Ready Program introduces the skills necessary to move from the classroom into hospitality organisations, specifically for the 6-month internship, and includes the range of skills incorporated in the employment process such as customer service, the language of hospitality and professionalism and expectations of the workplace.



An internship offers an authentic experience of professional service and workplace practice within hospitality industries.

Paid opportunities generally start at $25.26 per hour and are based off a student’s existing work experience. Unpaid opportunities are generally more specialised.
