Operations stream

Beyond face-to-face classroom learning, you’ll also immerse yourself in the exciting world of hospitality through internship placement!

The Operations stream of Academia’s Diploma of Hospitality Management includes a six-month placement of a paid or unpaid internship in the hospitality industry as part of the total 1.5 year course duration.

The Operation stream includes:

  1. Campus-based (non-kitchen) training for one year (two six-month semesters)
  2. One semester (six months) of training in various hospitality industry related work places
  3. Total course duration is 1.5 years (6 x 10-week terms)

Students can find their own placement through their part time work and own industry contacts during the first year of their program. Alternatively, Academia is happy to support you in finding an internship provider.

The Diploma of Hospitality Management is delivered face-to-face, through a combination of tutorials and workshops. You will be assessed through written tests, computer-based tasks, and assignments.

Work Placement

We offer internships to support our belief that the best learning outcomes are from practical, real industry-based work experience teamed with a strong academic foundation.

We believe that real training will help lead to real and rewarding job possibilities.

During the third semester of your studies, you’ll be required to find an industry-related internship in which you will gain real-life, hands-on experience in the exciting hospitality.
