Hospitality, tourism and events

As a hospitality and tourism student at AUT, you study at one of the top hospitality schools in the world and develop skills that lead you to rewarding careers.

Workplace experience is at the heart of our degrees, and our strong links with industry mean you can choose from lots of great host organisations for your placement. You’ll also learn about real-life hospitality right here on campus, in our training restaurants that are open to the public.

A certificate or diploma will give you an introduction to your chosen subject and can prepare you for further study.

A short course will develop your skills and knowledge in an area of personal or professional interest.
