Singapore

Recently, La Trobe Business School hosted thirty-five visiting students and two staff from Republic Polytechnic based in Singapore. On a whirlwind six day tour of Victoria, the students visited iconic tourist attractions including the Great Ocean Road, Healesville Sanctuary, Mornington Peninsula and the City of Melbourne. The students are currently studying a Diploma in Wellness, Lifestyle and Spa Management and visited LTU’s Melbourne campus for a tour of the campus facilities and gain first-hand knowledge of campus living if they continue their studies in the Bachelor of Business (Tourism and Hospitality) course at LTU. After a forty-five minutes campus tour accompanied by Daniel Hemsley, a second year student studying Event Management, a thirty minute presentation regarding the course was given by Paul Strickland and enthusiastically received. The trip was supported by the Singapore Government and Republic Polytechnic with the potential for students to continue their studies and achieve a higher qualification in the hope that graduates will apply their acquired knowledge back in Singapore. We look forward to welcoming articulating students into any of our programs.
