William Angliss Institute is emerging with its own unique style of scholarship.

The expansion of the Institute’s long tradition of offering specialised VET programs in foods, tourism, hospitality and events into bachelor degrees has provided our experts with the opportunity to explore research and scholarship in both the Higher Education and Vocational Education areas.

William Angliss Institute’s staff undertake a broad range of scholarly activities in their specialised areas. They use this research to further engage with academic, industry and public communities via publications, seminars, events and association membership. They then use this new knowledge to further improve their teaching, thus enhancing our students’ learning experience.

Ultimately, our students benefit from the Institute’s scholarly activity and reputation as the specialist centre for Foods, Tourism, Hospitality and Events.

College of Eminent Professors

William Angliss Institute’s College of Eminent Professors represents a learned body of leading researchers and scholars from Australia, the UK, USA and Europe. The disciplinary profile of College members broadly represents each of the Institute’s specialisation areas: foods, tourism, hospitality, and events. The key role of the College is to support the Institute’s strategic goals through the mentoring of staff, provision of research support, thesis examination, and strategic counsel to the Institute.



The Institute has a Research and Scholarship Framework that provides overarching direction, and a Framework for Scholarly Practice that sets out the features that make work scholarly, functioning as standards for scholarly work. These frameworks are supported by a Research Strategy and a Scholarship of Learning and Teaching Strategy which provide the focus and performance metrics for research and scholarship over a three-year period.



The Institute's Research Ethics Committee assesses all applications for ethics approval in accordance with the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research 2007 (Updated 2018).

Applications are to be received by the committee no later than 2 weeks prior to the next scheduled committee meeting. The committee meets up to ten times a year.

William Angliss Institute Research Repository

The Research Repository collects, preserves and provides access to the scholarly and research publications produced by the academic community of the William Angliss Institute.

Due to copyright restrictions, the site can only be accessed either on campus or by the official WAI VPN.

The Repository archives and curates all of Angliss's research output. The information is catalogued and so can be searched by subject area and author as well as publication and date of production. The repository also catalogues the work by "research community" wherein each of our key research communities: foods, tourism, hospitality and events as well as education, can be represented as a coherent body of work.
