Since its inception in 1972, the School has attracted international recognition for the quality of its programs and commitment to tourism education. The quality and vibrancy of the School’s academic and research staff also contributes significantly to the School’s competitive edge. All permanent teaching staff have PhD qualifications and possess valuable industry expertise and membership of networks in sectors such as destination management; tourist behaviour and visitor experiences; technology services; labour management in hospitality; and cultural diversity in event management. The School of Tourism has also established a dedicated Engagement team, which manages ongoing links to industry, including guest lectures, private consultancy projects, and student industry placements as part of the Professional Development course.
