As one of the most famous management schools in the region, and the first in Australia to promote an internationally recognised hotel management program, Blue Mountains is an obvious consideration for any of our students looking at Hotel Management. Some Northbridge alumni have already been students at this school and we have students currently looking to apply. Hotel Management, Global Business Management and Culinary arts are some of their most popular choices.

Victoria University is known as the top university in Australia for Sports Science. This university has several locations around Melbourne and also a few study abroad options.

As one of the world’s top research universities, the University of British Columbia Has two locations in Canada —in Vancouver and the Okanagan—This world class university attracts more than 60,000 students from Canada and 150+ countries around the world. We currently have two students from the graduating class of 2017 in attendance at UBC. Exciting offers are a Bachelor of Design degree, and their ever popular dual degree Bachelor of Arts and Master of Management. They continue to offer merit based scholarships to high achieving students. Another exciting idea about studying in Canada is that the government gives a 3 year open work permit to all graduates. With this being in the top 20 public universities in the world, it should be a consideration for all our students.
