Tourism is one of the world’s largest industries, and the Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Tourism Management will equip you with an understanding of globally sustainable tourism principles and their management.

This course will introduce you to the concepts of the triple bottom line approach, which recognises the need for tourism services and products to be environmental, economically and socio-culturally sustainable. You will develop a greater awareness of the negative impacts of unplanned growth and its linked stresses. You will learn how to manage tourism in natural and protected areas and how to apply sustainability concepts. You will also learn how to apply the core elements of sustainability to the development and ongoing management of tourism businesses and destinations.

FEE-HELP is the loan scheme provided the Australian Government to help eligible students pay their tuition fees through a loan.

Eligible students can use a FEE-HELP loan to pay for all or some of their tuition fees. If you elect to use a FEE-HELP loan, this means that you will defer payment of your tuition fees and repay your FEE-HELP loan when your income is above the compulsory repayment threshold (the 2018-2019 income year threshold is $51,957 or above).

You must meet specific eligibility requirements to be able to use FEE-HELP assistance.

If you are not eligible for a FEE-HELP loan, or you are required to pay your tuition fees upfront, you will need to pay your fees no later than the census date for the term in which you are studying.
