With challenge comes opportunity.  NOW is a great time to consider study and upskilling your current knowledge base to ready yourself for a bright future

While Tourism as a sector has irrefutably been knocked hard by the events of 2020, a long-lasting outcome will be the loss of a trained and committed workforce.

A reimagined sustainable tourism industry will be reliant upon a productive human resource.

QRC is an award-winning tertiary provider specialising in the delivery of internationally recognised tourism and hospitality management qualifications.  Our curriculum is taught by industry experts and overseen by an independent industry advisory board.

The QRC Graduate Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality is a one year programme of specialist industry study, research and work experience.  Students learn the management skills and supervisory knowledge required to manage tourism and hospitality businesses, market and sell tourism and hospitality products and understand the strategic, regulatory and policy framework of the industry.

In line with their strong strategic partnership, QRC are welcoming applications from Air New Zealand staff members currently displaced from their roles and looking for opportunity into further study.


The Level 7 Graduate Diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management has two intakes a year and runs for 12 months.  The next intake is April 2021 and the individual term dates can be found here.

The QRC Air New Zealand Study Grant is awarded to cover all tuition fees associated with the Graduate Diploma course only with a value of $14,690.  Incidental & living costs are not covered by the grant.

The Graduate Diploma course of study provides an in-depth understanding of the industry from both a theoretical and practical perspective and is a valuable way in which to solidify on-the job experience.  It is also an excellent conversion course for those wishing to pursue management opportunities within the tourism sector with undergraduate degrees in non-relevant subjects..
