This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year.

Overview

The hospitality industry is constantly changing to innovate and capitalise on consumer trends in food, drink and accommodation. There is a growing demand for highly knowledgeable graduates that understand global market trends and can drive forward marketing opportunities for responsible, sustainable hospitality businesses.

You will develop into a reflective practitioner who is able to make informed decisions and respond flexibly to a dynamic globalised hospitality industry and anticipate emerging market trends.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills required to think critically, be reflective, make research informed decisions and have the potential to transform and drive forward hospitality businesses through successful marketing practices.  You will also learn to put hospitality, business and marketing theory into practice with visits to local industry and the chance to work on live projects, such as creating branded social experiences, communication plans for hospitality businesses and by developing exceptional guest experiences.

You will have the opportunity to make insightful decisions based on market trends within and beyond the hospitality sector.  All of which means your project management skills will develop by creating exciting solutions that benefit consumers and the hospitality industry in an ever-changing marketing environment.

You will also have the option to tailor assessments to specific areas of interest including food trends, sustainability and technology.

You will have the opportunity to witness the hospitality industry first-hand through a series of field trips. Guest lectures and research seminars will also enable you to network with and learn from professionals.

Interaction with peers during and outside classroom activities will aid the development of new ideas and give you the ability to evaluate hospitality management techniques within a variety of settings.

In addition, the sandwich year will provide you with the chance to gain valuable industry experience and boost your employability skills.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning.

Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

To study this course, you will require broadband internet connection with a speed of 2mbps and working speakers. You will need Windows 7 / Mac OSX 10.8 or above and have access to Chrome v63 or higher (recommended), Edge v42+, Firefox v57+ or Safari v6+.
