About this course

With its powerful mix of real-world learning, industry insights, theoretical understanding, academic rigour and a truly international curriculum, our BA (Hons) International Hospitality Management gives you a competitive edge.

As the role of the hospitality manager becomes ever more complex and demanding, we cover all the crucial topics to help you hit the ground running in your career. You will gain skills in leadership, finance, IT and human resources to go with your in-depth knowledge of hospitality operations.

Our course captures the major trends which are transforming the industry today – from a greater emphasis on sustainability to technological advances, from changing customer expectations to new concepts of luxury.

This course offers you:

  • the knowledge and skills you'll need for a successful career in the hospitality industry
  • the access to membership of the Educational Membership Scheme of the Institute of Hospitality, giving you great opportunities to network and make industry contacts.
  • all the extra benefits from getting recognised industry membership from the Institute of Hospitality.
  • tutors with industry experience within different areas 
  • support from your personal tutor and other staff throughout your course
  • the chance to continue studying and gain a master’s degree.

 Assessment                                                                       

You will benefit from an innovative variety of assessment modes. Assessment is mainly via coursework which can take forms such as traditional essays and reports, group project work, research and consultancy projects, presentations, posters, and design of digital materials. There are also in-class tests and computer-based assessments.

Teaching & Learning                                                      

The course incorporates formal lectures, sometimes involving guest speakers; tutor-led and student-led seminars; one-to-one and small group tutorials; work experience projects; work-related learning and self-directed study.  By stage three, you are expected to be more in charge of your own learning, with module tutors advising and directing your studies.
