Bachelor of Business Management, majoring in International Tourism

Why did you choose to study at ICMS?

I chose to study at ICMS due to the smaller size of the college and students in a lecture. This has allowed me to grow as an individual with support rather then just being another student in a large classroom. The industry training also attracted me to the college as I feel the best way to learn is through experience. 

Why did you choose to study your particular course?

I am passionate about tourism but also loved business studies at school and knew that a degree in business would be something that would give me a broad range of career options for the future. 

Have you undertaken practical experience excluding industry training during your degree?

In my tourism subjects we have taken field trips to Taronga Zoo as well as down to Manly, which helped us to gain pratical information for assignments. 

What do you enjoy about your course?

The tourism assignments are always creative, interesting, relevant and teach us techniques and skills that we will use later in our careers. 

What are your plans for when you complete your degree?

I would love to gain a position in the marketing department or as a guest experience manager of an international hotel.

You were awarded the ICMS Professional Scholarship as well as the Academic Scholarship. Congratulations! What motivated you to apply?

I know that having a scholarship always looks good on your resume, opens up more opportunities to get engaged within the college as well as helping to pay the fees. 

What sporting or recreational activities do you take part in at ICMS? 

I am part of a Thursday night Netball team competition; and have also represented ICMS at Uni games for netball in Wagga Wagga. 

What are your highlights so far?

So far my ICMS highlights include gaining recognition for my academics through placement on the Deans List and recieving two scholarships. The field trip to Taronga Zoo was another as well as taking part in the Uni Games. Meeting industry professionals has been another highlight and, of course, the friends I have made.

What do you love most about being at ICMS?

The friends I have made and the opportunities that have been made available to me both career wise and social wise. 

What advice would you give to someone considering study at ICMS?

Apply for scholarships! And know that the more time you invest into the college the more you get out of it.
