The International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) prepares students for hotel management roles based on the acclaimed Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) model that stresses the importance of learning all aspects of the hotel industry.
This allows ICHM graduates to work all over the world in a wide variety of management roles within different types of hospitality organisations, and also in non-hospitality related businesses.
The ICHM Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) allows you to change your world by preparing you for an international career in a wide variety of hospitality businesses.
Starting from an operational base you will develop an understanding of the basics of business from a management perspective. Your knowledge base is expanded each year with new industry relevant concepts and business applications. ICHM’s academic year comprises six months full time study, followed by a six month full time Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement throughout Australia, or possibly overseas.
ICHM graduates gain a comprehensive understanding of the international hospitality environment; and as a result, have outstanding career prospects with many obtaining highly sought after positions around the world.
January / July
The Bachelor of Business (Hospitality Management) is a full-time course delivered face-to-face; WIL placements can be in different locations.
Graduates from hotel schools, or business/hospitality related qualifications/degrees, are encouraged to apply for credit transfers/advanced standing. Applicants seeking this should ensure that they supply all relevant documentation and evidence. Visit the credit transfer/advanced standing page for more information.

(Note: Students are encouraged to apply for credit transfer/advanced standing for study taken at other institutions; as well as time they may have spent working in the hospitality industry. Approved credit may reduce a students overall cost and study workload).
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placement (subject to course progression)
Orientation sessions at ICHM are held in week one at the start of each semester to provide a friendly welcome to all new students from Australia and around the world.
With students drawn from across the world, it would be unusual for students to know anyone else before they arrive. The orientation sessions are held to help you get to know each other, introduce you to Adelaide, find your way around the campus, meet your teachers, and just generally settle in. ICHM also offers a free airport pick up service to all new students.
