As part of your learning, some delivery of this course takes place in industry. Students are inducted through Tourism Tropical North Queensland's volunteer program which enables the students access to a live work environment at the Visitor Information Centre. This provides an opportunity for students to work with real customers and co-workers ensuring that industry standards and expectations are fully realised by the students. Participation in educational visits to local tourism operators is also a highlight of studying the Diploma of Travel and Tourism.
If you want to go on to further study at university, TAFE Queensland has a pathway option to get you there. In many cases, completing one of our Diplomas will give you a full year of credit towards a degree with one of our partner Universities. That means cutting down the amount of time you need to complete your degree, or even enrolling straight into the second year of your University course. Course details

Diploma of Travel and Tourism/Diploma of Events
I decided to study in Australia because it is an English speaking country and the weather is exactly what I was hoping to get every day. Everyone I knew that had studied in Australia told me that it was the best experience they had in their life. With so many students on campus, every day you have the chance to meet international people, experience different cultures, see what they study, and find out why they’ve chosen to study in Australia. For me practice is the best way of learning. Reading something and learning it through a book is certainly great, but experiencing it is what makes you understand why you’re actually doing it. I’ve worked at the Noosa Triathlon and the World Outrigger Championships and completed a cruise trip to Sydney with my Travel and Tourism class. These experiences are priceless. Since I started studying at TAFE Queensland my whole life has changed. I have got so much experience and learnt so much about the Tourism and Event industry and myself. I am very glad to have followed my heart and studied in Australia.
