Study tourism and travel

The travel and tourism industry offers a variety of exciting career opportunities, both within Australia and around the world. With our range of industry-integrated courses you can launch your career as a tour operator, travel agent, or travel consultant, or take the next step and unlock a sales, marketing, or management role in the industry.

Tourism is a major contributor to the nation’s economy. With international visitation to Australia growing at nearly three times the rate of global travel, Australia now makes more money selling tourism services to inbound visitors than it makes from exporting coal. Domestic tourism is also seeing strong growth with domestic travel growing at its fastest pace since formal records began in 1998.

TAFE Queensland offers a range of tourism courses with specialisations available in tourism management, travel, and tourism. We also offer a number of introductory and advanced language courses perfect for your next international trip. No matter where you want your tourism career to take you, TAFE Queensland can help you get there.
