International Hotel Management (BA)

Course overview:

Whichever programme you decide is right for you each year is divided into three academic terms. In the BA programme you spend the majority of your time studying academic modules but there two are periods of approximately three months duration which you spend on placement in a Hotel. On placement in a hotel, students spend their time working in a range of departmental areas. The first placement has a more operational emphasis whilst the final placement combines operational duties at a more advanced level together with involvement in hotel administration and management. Students will develop enhanced guest service skills and a critical understanding of the operational requirements associated with different departments in the hotel.

Academic study compliments the practical activities based at a hotel and links the academic and practical understanding of Hotel Management that students will require for their future careers in the industry. Our graduates are expected to achieve a critical understanding of essential management theory and practice, provided within a global context within which hotel organisations operate, and engage with principles of sustainable business practice. Academic study therefore provides a theoretical foundation of subject knowledge that can then be applied within a practical context during the placements at a Hotel.

All International Hotel Management programmes have three entry points in the year. These are usually in September, January and April.
