International hospitality management

Tourism management

This is an excellent course which offers superb preparation for a career in international tourism and/or hospitality management. It builds on strong academic foundations by providing exciting opportunities to engage with employers and events in industry.

**Reputation**
The Guardian University Guide 2019 ranked Coventry University number 4 in the UK for tourism and hospitality studies. That is why our course is widely recognised and highly valued by employers in these industries, and it is why our graduates are in demand. 

**Real business**
We work hard to deliver a real business experience. That means plenty of opportunities for practical exposure outside the classroom, such as work placements, field trips and visits to trade events. Within the classroom, it means real-world case studies, live projects with employers, and business simulations. Previous students have been recipients of the Ritz Endorsement Award following an internship opportunity.

**Tutors**
This course is designed and delivered by knowledgeable, helpful tutors who have worked for and with some of the biggest names in industry. Their careers span top international hotel groups, travel agencies and international tour-planning companies. They have worked in Europe, Asia and the USA, and undertaken consultancy work for international travel and hospitality businesses. Your tutors will continually draw on this broad experience to illustrate your learning.

**Internationalisation**
Every possible aspect of this course has been internationalised, so you will always embed your learning in the global context. We aim to provide opportunities to travel overseas for visits, work experience and/or study. There may also be projects which connect you with overseas employers and universities for group debates and discussions via Skype. Plus, you will have the opportunity to study amongst an international cohort, who will be encouraged to share perspectives from their home countries.

**Placements**
Practical work experience is highly valued by employers in tourism and hospitality, so you will have opportunities for internships lasting a year and/or a term, as well as the chance to work on live client briefs. You will also be encouraged to work part-time in industry while studying, and to undertake relevant employment during university vacations. 

**Key Course Benefits;**

- You will have opportunities for study visits to leading businesses, events and exhibitions in the UK and overseas.

- Internships, and the chance to network with employers during your course, could lead to employment offers when you graduate.

- Central London offers a fantastic place in which to study, with some of the world’s leading hotels, tour operators, airports and attractions right on your doorstep.

- Your tutors have all come from industry, where they gained extensive international management experience. This enables them to contextualise the theory they teach.

- You will benefit from a small student cohort, with lots of opportunities for individual contact and personalised learning. You and your tutors will get to know each other well.

- Career-oriented activities will help you learn to make effective job applications and to present yourself well in writing (on your CV) and in person (at interview or a networking event).

- Besides your industry-specific skills, this course will also develop your ‘softer’ skills – such as self-reliance; interpersonal, leadership and communication skills; logical approaches to work; creative problem-solving; and business acumen. These are highly transferable across all industries, and would be useful if you decide to branch out into other sectors.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.
