Bachelor of Event & Tourism Management

University of Canberra

The events and tourism industries are expanding quickly, with tourism now directly contributing almost three per cent to Australia's GDP. To help further drive growth and sustainability, a skilled and experienced workforce is needed - and this is where UC comes in. Our course has a foundation in business studies and investigates the key elements student will need for a future career in events and tourism. Students will graduate with solid teamwork and critical thinking skills, exploring events in both tourism and non-tourism contexts, such as sports, festivals, conventions, meetings and community activities. Employability will be enhanced thanks to the many practical Work Integrated Learning (WIL) opportunities students will undertake within the industry as part of the degree.
