Head of School welcome
Welcome to the School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, (STHM) where we provide excellence in tourism and hospitality management education, research and service activities to the Asia-Pacific.
At STHM we instil our students with the critical knowledge and fundamental business skills required to succeed in the global tourism, hospitality, hotel and events related industries. Our graduates are of the highest quality, in great demand, and fill professional roles in Australia and around the globe.
Our strong links with industry form a fundamental part of our internship program, giving our students real experience in real tourism jobs before they graduate and enter the workforce, ensuring that they are career-ready. We also offer an optional international exchange for undergraduate students.
Our courses are accredited, meeting the standards of excellence set by the International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE).
We also believe that advanced teaching and learning must be informed by research and innovation. Our research-active academics are widely published and the School runs two progressive research centres. The Centre for Gambling Education and Research conducts research and consulting in gambling operations, management, policy and impacts. The Centre for Tourism, Leisure and Work incorporates research and consulting with a focus on leisure and tourism planning, policy and management and promoting community resilience.
The valuable experiences and critical knowledge our students gain with us form an exceptional foundation for a career in tourism, hotel and resort management, or convention and event management.
I wish you all the very best in your studies and trust that your experience as a student in our School will be a rewarding one.
