At the Hotel Management Institute students live in at the iconic Hydro Majestic Hotel (or at an alternative hotel within the Escarpment Group), experiencing the live hotel environment on a daily basis.

This holistic approach set within the live hotel environment ensures that knowledge and skills learned, are contextualized and applied in a real and current operational environment.


Students have the opportunity to obtain casual work at one the four Escarpment Group properties during their course, assisting financially and providing valuable work experience. All properties are within easy commuting distance to the Hydro Majestic Hotel.


Let us help you prepare for a career in an increasingly international workforce.
