About

Turn your passion for professional service into a global career. The growth of global tourism has ensured that hospitality is now one of the world’s biggest industries with a broad range of job opportunities available in every country. A career in hospitality offers you both choice and security.

Developed in conjunction with leading Swiss hotel school César Ritz and featuring the most comprehensive practical training component in Australia, the Bachelor of Hospitality Management represents the next generation in hospitality qualifications. When you graduate from this degree you will possess the perfect blend of practical skill, theory and business acumen to take you to the top of your profession.

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) subjects are built into your degree, meaning you’ll have an organised internship as part of your degree.

Our impressive network of hospitality industry partners provide invaluable industry insight and experience, help shape our qualifications and ensure they are in line with industry best practice. When it is time to embark on your industry training, we work closely with them to find a suitable placement that is the best fit for your skills, interests and professional goals.

Your industry training could take you to a major city, regional area or island resort in Australia, or an international city. Not only is this an invaluable experience, it is also a chance to grow your professional network. For many of our graduates this experience introduces them to their future employers.

With our world-renowned partner, César Ritz Colleges, Switzerland, you will receive a superior hospitality education.

While theory teaches you the hospitality management fundamentals, nothing is as valuable as putting theory into practice. In addition to your industry training, you’ll gain hands-on experience through practical classes. You’ll also manage large-scale events with real clients and work in the Grand Dining Room (our on-campus training restaurant) and in the production kitchen. Field trips and site visits with our industry partners will get you learning from the best in the business.

The Bachelor of Hospitality Management is career-focused, and aims to develop contemporary knowledge and skills needed for success. This means:

  • strong hospitality industry relationships
  • everybody gets to complete a work placement in an organisation that aligns to their preferred industry
  • access to personal study assistance and wellness support
  • an emphasis on professionalism which includes: business cards, interview preparation, wearing 'business attire' in class, setting up LinkedIn profiles, access to the Career Hub, mentoring from high achieving students and alumni, working with your Work Integrated Facilitator on your CV.

In your final year of the Bachelor of Hospitality Management, you will have the opportunity to participate in a ‘capstone’ subject to test your abilities in addressing contemporary issues or problems in the area in which you may forge a successful career.

    • separate data for 2018 Year 12 students and 2016/17 Year 12 students
    • data relating to an entire year's intake (eg all offers made in 2019 – semesters 1 and 2).
  2. The ATAR values exclude any adjustment factors.
