During the course you’ll develop your analytical, digital literacy and communication skills which can be directly applied in the workplace.
The course will help you to build confidence and gain a deeper understanding of the hospitality sector and prepare you to progress to a higher level of study. It can also count towards your continued professional development (CPD).
On completion of this course you can apply for our BA (Hons) International Hospitality Business Management (top up) degree.
How much time should I allow for studying?You will study three 20 credit modules over a 12 month period, each of which will be the equivalent of around 200 learning hours. Each module runs over 10 weeks and as a guide we recommend you allocate 20 hours per week, per module.
You’re in control
Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures. This can be invaluable when you’re working in a busy hospitality role, because we know it’s not easy to get time off work. Throughout the course we’ll ask you to test out what you’re learning in your day to day role, and use your own experiences in assignments. Ultimately this should mean you find the course a useful step in your personal and professional career development.
You will need to complete the following three modules. The order in which you complete them will be dependent on when you choose to start (i.e. September, February or May).
