Course content

We are one of the top universities in the world for the study of tourism and hospitality, 10th in the world for hospitality and leisure management according to the QS University Rankings 2019 and 2nd in the UK (10th in the world) for hospitality and tourism management according to the Shanghai Rankings of Academic Subjects 2019.

This Master’s is a conversion course – meaning it is intended for students who have not studied the subject previously – and will provide you with an advanced understanding of the hospitality and tourism industry, with a managerial perspective of how to run such organisations. It is ideal for graduates who would like to change subjects or career direction.

Accredited by the Institute of Travel and Tourism and the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, this degree is intended to provide you with an advanced understanding of the hospitality and tourism industry and a managerial perspective of how to run such organisations. After completing this course, you'll have the capacity to be involved in more analytical, developmental and strategic perspectives of the industries than those at undergraduate level, and gain insights of the issues affecting hospitality and tourism.

Equally, this course will provide the opportunity for you to identify and engage with specialisms such as consumer behaviour, marketing, international human resource management, revenue management and international market trends. You will also have access to a wide range of extra curricula activities and qualifications, such as our visiting speakers programme for example representatives from Hilton International, Shangri-la Hotels, Fairmont Hotels and Le Manior aux Quat Saisons.

You will have the opportunity to attend our annual hospitality student conference and to undertake added value courses such as the Wine and Spirits Trust Award, trips to the World Travel and Tourism Market, London and the HOTS Hotel Simulation package.
