Hospitality Studies

The School of Tourism, Hospitality and Culinary Arts offers a number of pathway programs that allows students to complete a degree in three years. The first two years are conducted at Pegasus International College, Danang, and the final year can be completed at Edinburgh Napier University in the United Kingdom.


The two-year Pegasus program leads to an Australian Qualification – the Advanced Diploma of Hospitality. The Advanced Diploma has nested within it, three lesser qualifications: Diploma, Certificate IV and Certificate III– each an exit point providing the student with a recognisable overseas qualification and testamur.


There are three pathways to the Advanced Diploma: Students can study Hospitality, Commercial Cookery, or Patisserie. Progressing through Certificate III and IV, then doing common study for the Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Hospitality.


These programs are within the Australian Qualification Framework and offered through our Registered Training Organisation in Australia – Pegasus UniCollege (RTO 31984). The College is registered with the Australian Skills Quality Authority, an Australian Government Agency, which promotes quality training so that students, employers, and industry have confidence in Australia's training sector. Pegasus International College, under agreement with our Australian counterpart, Pegasus UniCollege, allows for the delivery of these courses in Vietnam.
