Hospitality, tourism and events

AUT’s hospitality, tourism and event management programmes are globally recognised, and the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) places us in the top 75 in the world.

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.
