AQF Level


This is studying abroad for experience seekers. Immersed in Australian life, living like a local and learning international skills. Pack your bags for an unforgettable experience. 

Study Abroad is a non-award program available for international students who are already studying at another institution or university. With the Study Abroad Program, ICHM invites students from all around the world to study in Adelaide for six months, and then undertake a paid work placement in an Australian hotel for six months (the work placement is optional). 

Together with your own university or hotel school you can select up to 8 subjects (or as few as 4 subjects) at different levels.


Entry Requirements

Students must be studying at another institution or university. To study at ICHM students will need an IELTS of 6.0. (no band below 5.5); or recognised equivalent.


Visa Requirements

Students will apply for a Student Visa (subclass 500) Non-Award Temporary Visa. This has a limit of 12 months, inclusive of English, tuition and work placements. Find details regarding Study Abroad Visa here.

All international students coming to Australia on student visas are required to pay for Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the full duration of their studies.

Tuition fees are calculated by the number of subjects studied. The per subject cost for 2022 is fixed at A$4,000. So your tuition fees will depend on the number of subjects you choose; for example the six month academic fee for studying four subjects on the campus will be A$16,000. 

If you want to study additional subjects, you pay the per subject cost for each one undertaken. All Study Abroad students pay a one off New Student Fee.

ICHM’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL) process has been designed to ensure students leave their degree industry ready and can hit the ground running.

The professional internship provides a placement opportunity which enables students to consolidate the skills and knowledge they have acquired in practical, professional settings to achieve the subject learning outcomes and complete assessments which integrate theory and practice and facilitate self-reflection and critical analysis. In addition to participating in the workforce with a host company as part of a structured internship or creating their own entrepreneurship venture, the students will also complete a placement project on an issue of strategic value to their host company or own venture, as described in the next section.

Students will critically reflect upon their own development plan and progress through the preparation of a reflective assessment that considers the impact of identified workplace experiences on their personal development and future career progression opportunities. This subject also allows students the opportunity to explore their professional interests; test their industry expectations or possible start-up creations and ideas; apply, practice and develop real world employability skills; and form professional networks for future career success.

ICHM prides itself on the quality and number of WIL placements available to its students. These placements form an integral and extremely valuable part of all the ICHM degree programs.

ICHM works with a number of valued industry partners across hospitality and broader business industries, both within Australia and around the world, to facilitate placements which will enhance the career prospects of each individual student.

The Commonwealth Department of Education and Training has approved ICHM as a FEE-HELP provider. FEE-HELP allows Australian and other eligible students students to obtain student loans.

The Study Assist website provides information for students about government assistance for financing tertiary study.


The Tuition Protection Service (TPS) is an initiative of the Australian Government to assist and support students whose education providers are unable to complete the delivery of their course of study. While provider closures are rare, when a provider does stop delivering a course it can be a worrying and uncertain time for students. The TPS is in place to provide information and assist affected students. In relation to ICHM, the TPS provides assistance and support to:

  • International students on student visas

  • Domestic higher education students accessing the Higher Education Loans Program (FEE-HELP)

  • Domestic full fee paying students.

In the event of a provider default, eligible students will be supported to continue their studies in an equivalent or similar course, receive a loan re credit for open units of study, or receive a refund for their upfront payments made for an affected unit.


The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. The AQF describes the equivalencies of Australian undergraduate and postgraduate degrees; the ICHM Master of International Hotel Management, Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship), Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) are thus equivalent in standing to any Australian university degree.
