Australia: the new home of hospitality education


Chair of The Association of Australian Hotel Schools, Peter Lewis, discusses Australia’s emergence as a leading location for hotel schools.

Whilst Switzerland is perceived by many as the long established home of hospitality, we regard Australia as the new, innovative and strategic centre of tourism and hospitality education. Our infrastructure of world-class hotels and educational facilities, currency in curriculum, innovation in delivery and genuine Australian hospitality make for a great learning environment.

Australia is also one of the best places in the world to live while you learn. The standard of living is amongst the highest in the world, yet costs still remain competitive. On your breaks from study, you will have a wide choice of activities to enrich your experience - from cultural festivals, concerts and museums, to major sporting events.

Members of the Association of Australian Hotel Schools (AAHS) are all private, full fee paying colleges, offering programmes that are specifically geared towards preparing new entrants to meet the demands and expectations of the service management sector including tourism, hotel, conventions and event industries.
