Student Information

Partnering with local businesses to provide students with practical knowledge and experience.

The founders of Mulberry Institute have extensive ties with industry and businesses, and these relationships will help to ensure that students have opportunities to gain practical knowledge and experience in their areas of study. By doing this, we are able to link students with the right opportunity based on their interests and individual priorities.

Furthermore, we align our training to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. As a result, a Mulberry Institute graduate will be at the forefront of the hospitality industry, and will be part of the next generation of hospitality innovators.

It is a requirement of all Mulberry Institute courses to gain work experience in the hospitality industry. The number of hours required depends on the course being undertaken. 

How does the Industry Placement (IP) work?

This practical component enables students to attend traditional classes, but also complete a work placement in a real business. 

Our Industry Liaison Manager assists in the procuring of a suitable placement free of charge in the first year at college.

Students typically work in a suitable establishment that offers one or more products or services listed below:

  • Accommodation
  • Food and Beverage
  • Function and Catering
  • Meetings, Events, Conventions, Conferences, Seminars

Students will most likely be offered an entry level position in their first year.

Students are also able to organise their own casual or permanent part-time employment to complete their industry placement hours. Please refer to this document for more information.

All independent student placements need to have prior approval by the college.
