Course modules

Our extended foundation course is perfect if you want a degree in hospitality management but don’t have the standard entry requirements. We prepare you for your degree during the foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. You can then go on to study for a full undergraduate degree.

The first year builds your key skills in hospitality management while cementing the basics of good business, such as people management and marketing.

In the second year, you will study core modules that cover different aspects of practical hospitality management, including service delivery, finance, leadership, and food and beverage management. You can choose from many optional modules that focus on themes such as e-business, destination marketing, social media, or events. You can do a work-based project that takes the form of a real internship at one of our industry partners.

The third year is the overseas placement year for International Hospitality students or the final year for those taking the core BA programme. You will focus on an individual Research Project, Consultancy Project, or Enterprise Project (for Hospitality Entrepreneurship students), giving you the chance to apply your skills to a practical project of your choice. You will study core modules covering innovation and enterprise, conferences and events, and food culture with further optional modules to choose from.

NOTE: Modules are subject to change. For those studying part time courses the modules may vary.

What our students and staff say

Dr Michael Palkowski
What motivates and inspires me is helping to provide opportunities for students from a range of backgrounds. I was from a working-class town, and nobody expected me to go into further education. However, I was given an opportunity to study at a widening participation university and I fell in love with my subject area and eventually went on to do my PhD."
