This course is widely recognised as one of the best in the UK, thanks to its global reputation within the hospitality industry. The hospitality industry is about people. It’s about how they spend their time and the sort of experiences they are looking for. They could be in a holiday resort or their local pub, at a business conference, a charity fundraising dinner or an international sporting event. Taught by hospitality specialists who are actively involved in research that informs the future of hospitality, with many also working with businesses in the hospitality sector, the course has been designed to equip you with a range of skills needed to get ahead in this versatile and exciting sector. You’ll cover a combination of theoretical and practical modules, as well as discovering the necessary skills to put this knowledge to good use in real-world situations. In your final year, you can specialise in a particular area of the hospitality industry, after having learned the basics and gained experience during your placement year. You'll also benefit from regular guest lectures from industry professionals such as the Commercial Director for Young & Co’s Brewery and Managing Director of Geronimo Inns Limited as well as speakers from Ritz Carlton and Le Manoir aux Quats Saisons.
