Moses Lutaaya

Moses Lutaaya is from Uganda and is studying the Advanced Diploma of Accounting at TAFE SA

"I’ve always had a keen interest in studying accounting and have wanted to explore the world for as long as I could remember. I decided to look into studying abroad and the found that the TAFE South Australia accounting course not only offered great value for money but would provide me with the knowledge and skills that employers want. My lecturers are fantastic and always go that extra mile to help all their students and make learning and understanding accounting inspiring.

Myles Carr

Studied Bachelor of Business (Hotel & Resort Management) at Le Cordon Bleu

A graduate of the class of ’07, Myles Carr is now Franchise Operations Manager – NSW for AccorHotels, looking after 26 hotels across the region. He says his degree provided him with the foundation skills to feel confident to put up his hand up for the position.

“If someone had told me that eight years after graduating I would have worked in six or seven hotels, with each position different and better than the previous, I would never have believed them,” says Myles. 


Studied hospitality at TasTAFE

“Studying in Tasmania is one of the best decisions I have made. My teachers inspired and encouraged me, which gave me confidence.  Since graduating from TasTAFE, I have worked in managerial roles in high end luxury hotels across Australia.  Wherever I have been employed, I have been promoted very quickly. I love what I do”.


"I chose to study in Tasmania because of the reputation in education excellence. My sister and I lived in Tasmania and we have thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

Choosing a study destination is an important decision. The first thing everybody usually considers is where they want to go. Instead, I chose this destination because there was something I want to do there, a goal I want to achieve. Deciding what you wish to gain from your international experience is the first step.

Steve Yoon

Steve is from South Korea and studied the Diploma of Hospitality at QTHC

“I enjoy customer service and studied tourism and business management back in South Korea. I chose commercial cookery because I wanted to get the skills in the hospitality industry.

My trainer Michaela respects all of the students’ opinions. She always provide us with useful information and she makes the mood of class excitingly, which is great.

Satinder Singh

Satinder came from India to study the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality at QTHC

“I came from India to complete my hospitality and commercial cookery qualification in Australia. I learnt the fundamentals of cooking all the way up to managing a hospitality venue. Seeing all the different aspects of a hospitality operation has made me appreciate the industry and it has helped me realise that hospitality is the perfect career.
