Course overview

Standard: three academic year programme of full-time study and up to six years part-time. Non-standard: two academic year accelerated programme of full-time study with placement year, and up to four years part-time. The pattern of full-time delivery varies depending on programme duration:

Standard three year: Three terms per academic year. Full-time students will study 40-credits worth of modules per academic term. Within a term, the modules run in parallel with each other.
Non-standard accelerated two year programme with placement: Three terms per academic year. Full-time students will study 60-credits worth of modules per academic term. Within a term, the modules run in parallel with each other.

Part-time study allows maximum flexibility for students to suit their workload and family commitments. Students will typically study half the credits of a full-time study equivalent (60 credits per year). All modules are compulsory.


Entry requirements

The programmes usually require students to have achieved 88 UCAS points.

Whilst grades are important, our offers are not solely based on academic results. We are interested in creative people that demonstrate a strong commitment to this subject area and so welcome applications from individuals from a wide range of backgrounds.

To assess your suitability for your chosen course we arrange interviews for all applicants at which your skills, achievements and life experience will be considered as well as your qualifications, these are held both virtually and at campus.


Our programmes are designed to produce graduates with both a strong academic understanding and practical skills fit for the industry.

The vocational emphasis of our programmes puts our graduates in a particularly strong position when applying for jobs and graduate management training schemes, such as the prestigious Marriott “Voyager” Graduate Management Training programme.

Whilst other graduates choose to progress within family-owned hotels, other hospitality businesses, consultancy firms etc., due to the range of skills students obtain on this degree, our graduates are highly sought after for a range of different careers.


Assessment includes written assignments, reports and practical assessments that test knowledge, understanding and cognitive skills but with an emphasis on the development of practical and key (transferable) skills that mirror the skills that the students will require when they enter the workplace following completing of their respective courses.
