Take off to an exciting future

Right at this moment, right around the world, from Tippaburra to Timbuktu people are dreaming about their future travel experiences. Helping people to make those dreams come true is what people who work in the travel and tourism industry do.

Sydney TAFE travel, tourism and event courses can open up the world.  Become an events manager, travel agent, tour guide, sales and marketing manager or business development manager responsible for exclusive products and large corporate accounts.

A career in travel, tourism and events could take you anywhere.  

Flexible and fast-track options

Sydney TAFE can recognise your knowledge and life/work experience so you finish your qualification faster.

If you are already working in the industry and want to build on your career, you can apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL) so you don’t have to study what you already know.

Sydney TAFE is always developing innovative ways to deliver its courses, including evening and online options, with the diploma and advanced diploma-level courses in both travel and tourism available online.

Towards a rewarding tourism career

Sai Pesanan came to Sydney TAFE to study events and then decided to go global. With her interests broadening, she redirected her study program towards travel and tourism.

Sai’s knowledge and experience gave her the training she needed to gain a position with LesConcierge as a lifestyle consultant, a role which combines both events and tourism. She is now doing further study specifically in travel to gain even more skills and opportunities in the tourism industry.

From Sydney TAFE to a degree

Create your own pathway from a certificate-level course right through to a Bachelor of Hospitality (Management) at Sydney TAFE.

Some higher level Tourism courses offer credit transfer so you may can fast-track your degree after you finish your Sydney TAFE course, with a number of universities across Australia offering bachelor degrees in tourism, tourism management and hotel management.
