About us

UCLan Hospitality Management is part of the Tourism, Hospitality and Events Division in the Lancashire School of Business and Enterprise at the University of Central Lancashire.

Hospitality is a global industry, where dealing with international guests may be a day-to-day occurrence. We support you to develop intercultural communication skills through our wide range of language courses.

Our well-established courses 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. You can also personalise your study and your optional third year work placement according to your chosen career path.

" I think UCLan was great. There are interesting diverse modules and assessments each year, which will keep you interested in the work and allow you to try new things." - Danny Thompson

In the early stages of your degree, you will explore the hospitality industry and its development from an international perspective. You will look into the context of human resources and the field of customer service, additionally, all students will develop skills in food and beverage operations.
The course provides a strong management orientation through the study of marketing issues alongside the analytical approach of talent conducting a study of current trends in hospitality, corporate hospitality and related business events. 

We support and encourage the planning of a placement year, with students taking up a range of opportunities working in 4/5* hotels in China, USA and New Zealand to the family resorts of Orlando, Florida. 

"During my placement, one of my favourite departments was reception, and after graduating I was offered a permanent role. Both studying and work experience go hand-in-hand and this is how you get the most from your degree!." - Susannah Holden

We want our graduates to be highly employable when they leave us, so we place a strong emphasis within all our courses on knowledge and developing practical skills, as well as on the more theoretical aspects of learning. Students develop their practical skills on Campus in co-operation with our Scholars Hospitality Team.

Our graduates hold a range of management positions in companies across the world as well as being employed in government departments, charities and educational institutions.
