The Bachelor of Tourism furnishes students with a solid understanding of the tourism industry that will underpin a career in this ever-expanding industry. Skills central to working in this field will be developed through the course, including analytical skills, critical thinking, problem solving, research and written and verbal communication skills. An important aspect of learning within the Tourism degree takes place outside the classroom. Many subjects offer students the opportunity to engage with the tourism industry with overnight and day field trips to many of Victoria's most significant tourist destinations such as the Great Ocean Road, Phillip island Nature Park and The Yarra Valley. Students experience theory in practice and learn directly from owners, managers, experts and specialists in the field.
