Study, work and live at 5-star Hayman Island InterContinental Resort with paid internships

Tourism and hospitality students now have access to paid internships at the Intercontinental Hayman Island Resort in Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.

This is the latest hotel management study initiative to be unveiled by The Hotel School.

The doors of the unique tropical campus have just opened and received its first intake of students for Session 1, 2021. The Hotel School campus situated in the InterContinental property is the only hotel school in the world where students can study, work and live on a 5-star resort island.

The course available to study at the Hayman Island campus is a two-year Associate Degree, where students graduate with two qualifications: An Associate Degree from Southern Cross University and a Diploma in International Hotel and Tourism Management from HTMi Switzerland.

HTMi Switzerland is ranked 13th for Hospitality in the Global QS University rankings, Top Ten for Employer Reputation and is world renowned for its high quality swiss style education in hotel and tourism management. Graduates are prepared for a management career in the global hospitality industry.

The Hotel School is the only provider in Australia to offer swiss style education through their unique partnership with HTMi Switzerland.

The Associate Degree of International Hotel and Tourism Management combines a rigorous academic curriculum with a unique integrated learning experience. Students are exposed to practical knowledge in both front and back of house through units of study in food and beverage operations, accommodation operations and finance. Students have access to 880 hours of paid internships.

The Hayman Island campus joins The Hotel School’s existing campus locations in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The Hotel School is a long-standing partnership between Southern Cross University and hotel giant Mulpha Australia.

Mulpha Australia CEO Greg Shaw said his organisation was proud to lead the industry with the world’s first 5-star resort island hotel school.

“With the opening of the Hayman Island campus, Mulpha has created a vision of a new globally unique academic offering,” said Mulpha Australia CEO Greg Shaw.

“Rather than students studying academic content and enjoying work opportunities to re-enforce learning, the Hayman Island location allows complete and full integration of students into the InterContinental Resort business.”

Mr Ian Larmour, HTMi Switzerland CEO; “We are delighted to be part of this unique and growing collaboration now in the beautiful Hayman Islands in the blended resort and hotel school segment.”
