A TOURISM student at the University of the South Pacific was recognised as the winner of the Bad Dog Trophy.

Shailini Gounder was given an award for the top USP Tourism and Hospitality student on Tuesday, which was supported by Bad Dog Café.

USP school of tourism and hospitality and hotel management program co-ordinator Greg Cornwall said students would normally go out in Year 3 as an intern to do a practicum (work experience) at a four or five-star hotel.

He said they would spend six months in the food and beverage department working in restaurants, bars, food and beverage, and kitchens.

"USP students studying for a Bachelor of Commerce in Tourism and Hospitality study food and beverage management in the first semester of their second year."

During semester one, Ms Gounder participated in various field trips around Suva, including wine tasting at Victoria Wines, dinner at Daikoku, a Suva Market trip with Philippe, a chef at Holiday Inn followed by a cooking class where they made their dim sum lunch at Restaurant 88 and a health lunch at Highland Natural.

Ms Gounder said the competition encouraged them to work hard towards their goal.
