Tourism and hospitality

Why research tourism and hospitality?

Our academic staff have impressive national and international experience. Highly regarded for their research, they are published in leading journals and academic publications. They are active in government and corporate research projects, policy development, industry associations and present at a range of conferences.

La Trobe University is a member of Innovative Research Universities Australia, which attracts more than $340 million in funding each year. Our research centres provide a focal point for research strengths and establish links to government, industry and the wider research community.

We offer broad scope for individual or interdisciplinary team research. You will benefit from a supportive study environment, where academic staff work closely with students to facilitate positive learning outcomes. Take advantage of a range of scholarships and access to excellent library facilities. The main library at the Melbourne campus is one of the best in the southern hemisphere.
