This well-established International Hospitality Management course will give you the skills to be an effective manager within the global industry, whether you are thinking of developing your management skills to work in restaurants, bars, conferences, hotels or resorts. This industry focus is emphasised throughout all aspects of the programme, thus it will enable you to gain a competitive edge in the graduate job market, and you can personalise your study and your optional third year work placement according to your chosen career path. Course numbers are kept small so that you can develop close working relationships with staff and other students very quickly. Graduates of the course are pursuing careers throughout the international hospitality industry. Many are working for large international organisations, whilst a significant number have chosen to work more locally in the UK hotel industry. You can aspire to working in cruise ships, nightclubs, casinos, major hotel chains and restaurant groups. The optional 48-week work placement in 3rd year (Year 4 if you started in the Foundation Entry) ensures graduates have a good level of work experience once they graduate. Many students go on to work at their placement company once they leave UCLan. You can also choose to work abroad on an international placement and students regularly work for Disney in their placement year or in a number of international hotels chains across at least five continents.
