The Hotel School Sydney began operating in 1989 as an integral part of five-star hotel Intercontinental Sydney, in partnership with Southern Cross University. Since then, it has developed close working relationships with many leading tourism organisations in Australia and around the world.

Southern Cross University is an Australian public University with a vibrant teaching and research profile. It is committed to excellence, and its School of Tourism and Hospitality Management is a pioneer of tourism education in Australia, having offered degrees for 25 years.

With the School’s history and experience come years of knowledge and close partnerships with leaders in the industry. The Hotel School Sydney degree prepares students to successful careers in hospitality management, equipping them with industry-relevant skills, creative approaches and academic rigour.

InterContinental Sydney, the best hotel in Australia, offers students unique opportunities to practice their trade and develop their skills by working and interning regularly between lessons. The Hotel School’s unique location in the heart of the Harbour means students have direct access to the industry.
