Study on campus
Our renowned Adelaide campus offers an immersive experience, with world-class facilities designed to respond to the needs of now.
On-campus courses are delivered with a seminar model. Group sizes vary each year of study; with operational, service and computer-based subjects taught in small groups. Students are expected to participate fully by contributing to discussions and debate to assist them in forming their own opinions.
It really is an exciting environment in which to learn. ICHM provides all the benefits of an on campus experience with real world practical learning spaces and learning within hotels of our industry partners.
During face-to-face course on campus semesters ICHM students will use a number of academic and operational learning areas including:
Computer suite and digital library and resources
Wine education space
Restaurant service training facilities.
Methods of assessment
Some subjects have exams, but these are rarely the only form of assessment. Assessment methods can include practical tests, group work, essays, personal portfolios, presentations, log books, written assessments and case studies.
Each subject and Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement has assessments spread across the academic semesters, with student workload a major consideration in the timing of assessments.
ICHM has assembled an expert team of academic lecturers; leading industry professionals in their respective fields. They come equipped with extensive knowledge in the hospitality, tourism and business fields, specialising in entrepreneurship and marketing.
All with the aim of producing a superior student experience, and the highest quality graduate outcomes.
