Formatted Abstract/Summary
This study examined the current international students’ levels of motivation from working in the hospitality industry in Australia. The study began by investigating the steadily increasing number of international students in hospitality studies in Australia. It discussed how motivation theory has been applied to the general industry. The research used a self-completing questionnaire for the primary data collection. The main intention of the questionnaire is to collect information for using several theories in the motivation study to investigate the current international students’ levels of motivation when working in the hospitality industry. The survey was conducted with 200 international students in hospitality studies in the Brisbane and Gold Coast area in Southeastern Queensland, Australia. The research discovered the level of their motivation through the industry experience programs was not significantly high. The outcome of this research should provide valuable information when operating the current education programs by the education providers.
