    Course/Program description

    Leisure and Tourism
    Leisure and Tourism Management is taken as a single honours degree and is taught by the UK business team for research in leisure and tourism. The course provides management education for those seeking a career in this area. It also develops the management skills needed in all types of business. If you have sufficient competency in French, Spanish or German, you are encouraged to apply for the International award with opportunities for a dual diploma through study at a University in Spain, France or Germany.

    There is a one year paid work placement which may be taken in the UK or abroad. Exemptions may be granted for those students with appropriate prior work experience.

    This degree will equip you for management level careers with tour operators, travel companies, tourist boards, government leisure and tourism departments etc.

    If you have prior academic or work based qualifications, you may be granted exemption from part of the course on an individual basis.

    Hospitality Management
    Hospitality Management is taken as a single honours degree or combined with another subject. It has a business based course with applications across all sectors of the UK hotel and catering industry.

    You will work on a range of ‘live’ problem-solving exercises with the major hotel and catering employers in London and our Training Restaurant.

    The third year of the single honours is spent on paid work placement in UK or abroad. Placement is optional on combined awards.

    The course is assessed by a mixture of coursework and examinations.

    Recent graduates have taken posts with organisations including Hilton International, Forte UK and Hotels International.

    If you have prior academic or work based qualifications you may be granted exemption from part of the course on an individual basis.
