Hey Im currently looking for the possiblity of having an exchange student program to study Tourism and Hospitality in Australia. My first choice was the UQ (University of Queensland) but im getting cold feet after what happened during the floods.

Other possibilities are:

University of New South Wales
University of Technoloy in Sydney
University of Newcastle
Swinburne
Monash

Any suggestions?

Also, when do classes regulary start and how expensive is it to live?

Im also considering assisting to Auckland University of Technology (has anyone heard of it?)

Thanks in advance

This course would be more commonly done at TAFE or Tech than Univeristies.
A quick check of local university courses shows nothing:

How does TAFE or Tech studies perform against an average University?

Im currently studying my sixth semester at a private university and planning to get a Master in the mid-future.
I chose the UQ before because it had the most extensive program in Tourism and Hospitality (as far as i know)
Ive already done 5 months of internship in a travel agency and will continue in airport and hotels.

My priority is to learn the planning/business side of the industry, since im getting all my knowledge of the technical side during my internship.

Cheers.

You should not be getting cold feet due to the floods, comming to brisbane now you would hardley know it happend, unless your close to someone who is directly affected by it. Almost all the people who died lived in the lockeyer valley 100km west of brisbane, the steets are now as clean as they were before the flood.

I went to the UQ, had a great time, I dont know much about the tourism and hospitality course however.

Im having a hard time trying to choose the best university for me.
Its going to be one of the following:

Sydney
UTS

Melbourne
Swinburne
Deakin
Monash

Brisbane
UQ

UQ looks great but im afraid it may not offer things you might find in bigger cities.
Melbourne sounds tempting but I still have to choose from 3 different universities.
I think Swinsburne is more prestigious but still, Im very confused.

Any thoughts?
