A Passport to an International Career

"Whether in Switzerland or Adelaide, the program to achieve our diploma is exactly the same and accorded the same recognition" Jean-Michel Illi -- Former Director, Swiss Hotel Association.

Students from more than 70 countries have studied at the Adelaide based International College of Hotel Management (ICHM), it blends 100 years of European tradition with a fresh, work-ready approach to quality, and industry focused education and training for which Australia has gained an international reputation.

Established 1992 in partnership with Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) and the South Australian Government, the International College of Hotel Management (ICHM) prepares students for a successful career at the top end of the international hotel industry. ICHM was the first school outside of Switzerland able to offer the world renowned Swiss Hotel Association Diploma of International Hotel Management. For more than a century, the Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) has been the official organisation for the hotel industry in Switzerland, setting the standards in hotel management education for the rest of the world to follow.

To achieve the SHA Diploma, ICHM students spend 6 months each year for three years studying full-time on the campus; the second six months of each year they are sent for Industry Placements (or internships). While on campus, students study practical subjects combined with business studies applicable to hospitality environments as well as other related industries.

Note: ICHM has about 400 students and can only accept a maximum of 90 students every January and July intake.

Industry Placements play an extremely valuable role in the ICHM courses. Students spend one semester each year working in hotels, resorts or a similar type of hospitality organization. Working with over 400 hotels worldwide, ICHM has built an enviable reputation for the quality of the industry placements arranged for students. Essentially ICHM undergraduates can travel the world, working in hotels in Australia and overseas, be it Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide or the Great Barrier Reef; to Dubai, London and Hong Kong ... ICHM students experience it all!

All new students live in ICHM's modern on-campus accommodation complex, staying in single bedroom accommodation each room is equipped with a phone and a computer with internet access. A secure home away from home, with staff on duty 24 hours a day and all meals prepared by professional chefs in the student dining hall.

Students that successfully completed the SHA Diploma can then study towards the ICHM Bachelor Degree, a university level qualification for those seeking the best positions in an ever- competitive marketplace. Graduates are then able to gain direct entry into Masters Programs at various universities in Australia and the United Kingdom.

ICHM graduates are on every continent enjoying successful careers; working as supervisors and specialists through to senior and general managers. Their employers range from boutique establishments to large multi-national hotels and resorts; many graduates are also employed in a business or managerial capacity across other non-hospitality related industries. An ICHM qualification truly is the passport to a successful career.
