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

Travel and Tourism International
My experience at TAFE as an International student has been very positive. I enjoyed my studies in Travel & Tourism, learning more about the tourism industry, where I had very little previous experience. Teachers were very knowledgeable and supportive, guiding me throughout the course and helpful with getting my first foot into this new career.
Through familiarisation trips and work experience I learnt more about Cairns and
the Wet Tropics Region, which has helped me greatly in settling down into a new
environment and country. Classes are usually a good mix of international and
local students, which helped me with meeting people and making new friends.
