Student success stories

Rebecca Dodds-Gorman

Bachelor of Business/Bachelor of International Tourism and Hotel Management

“Undertaking an internship or work experience is a great way to get practical experience in addition to my degree qualification. It is definitely who you know, but you’ve also got to back it up with what you know, and that comes from theoretical and practical application of skills and knowledge”.

Brendon Ranson

"My host organisation welcomed me with open arms. They gave me so much exposure to all areas of HR and have kept me highly engaged and on my toes. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants exposure and experience in their field of study. It will be an enjoyable experience and something you will not regret."
