The Australian School of Tourism and Hotel Management

The hospitality industry is growing at a phenomenal rate as more and more people are able to experience international travel. All over the world, better equipped and more lavish hotels and resorts are attracting ever more willing travellers for business or pleasure. International hotels and resorts are already demanding highly trained professional staff. In the future, practical experience alone will not be enough to secure the best positions and internationally recognised qualifications are now being keenly sought after by key employers.

Founded in Perth, Western Australia in 1989, the ASTHM is a nationally accredited private educational institution whose purpose is to provide the local and international hotel and tourism industries with the best trained and most highly motivated management professionals.

The ASTHM offers Certificate, Diploma, Advanced Diploma and University Degree courses based on the widely praised (and industry favoured) Swiss Hotel School training methods. Over the years ASTHM has fine-tuned its courses to meet the specific needs of Australia’s and Asia’s changing markets and is, unquestionably, one of Australia’s most respected and awarded centres for hospitality and tourism education.

At ASTHM, it is also believed that the correct attitude is fundamental to graduates success and the School goes to great lengths to instill the values of self discipline, respectful countenance and a positive attitude. To underline these values, it is insisted from the very first day that all students should dress as they normally would in actual employment. While this may seem somewhat overzealous, ASTHM firmly believes that discipline and attitude are the basis for a successful international career in hotel and tourism management. It is no exaggeration to suggest that these very qualities are the hallmarks of all ASTHM graduates.


Education's purpose is
