Research-led Teaching

As a postgraduate student in the tourism program, you will have the opportunity to be taught by academic staff members who are widely regarded as research pioneers in the field of high-yield, independent travel/backpacker travel and the associated impacts on urban tourism and the development of small and medium-sized enterprises.

Our teaching staff members, led by Dr Jeff Jarvis and Dr Vicki Peel, continue to undertake industry-funded research projects, both locally and internationally. This ensures that you will be exposed to the very latest developments in the field and be taught by academic staff at the forefront of their industry.

These active research links shape our curriculum and ensure its contemporary relevance to provide you with best employment and research opportunities.
