After graduation your industry placement will provide valuable proof of work experience to future employers, enhance your career prospects while also equipping you with necessary skills for the future.
Industry placements are a key part of our courses and are designed to give you real world experience that will help you work out which career pathways are best suited to you.
Industry placements must be completed in order to fulfil your degree requirements. Undergraduate students are required to undertake two placements for six months each, while Masters students need to undertake one six month placement.
During your industry placements, you will reinforce and expand on the knowledge and skills you learnt on campus by working in a real operational environment.
Industry placements also provide an invaluable opportunity to meet potential employers and gain solid employment experience to add to your CV.
All placements in hotels are paid within Australia. Placements within some fields are occasionally unpaid.
