Imagine a career where 2 days are never the same. Where you’ll meet new people, travel to new places and maybe even learn new languages. On our International Hospitality, Events and Tourism Management MSc, you’ll do exactly that.

If you want to work in hospitality, events or tourism, but aren’t sure which area, this course is for you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have experience – we’ll teach you everything you need to know to stand out.

Helping you secure the job you want is really important to us. You’ll get hands-on experience through live projects and field trips, and help finding a one year paid placement. Past placement organisations include Marriott and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA).

Thanks to our unique Bacchus Mentoring programme, you’ll receive support from a senior professional working in the hospitality, tourism or events industry who can help you navigate your career path. We’ll also introduce you to other professionals, employers, and alumni. All of this will help you grow your network and build connections.

Specific entry requirements

Normally a minimum of a second-class honours degree or equivalent in any subject. Entry will be subject to two satisfactory references (one of these must be an academic reference). Please note that although useful, prior work experience in the hospitality and tourism industry is not a requirement for this course.
