How you learn

The course is suitable if you don’t meet the entry requirements for our BSc (Hons) International Hotel Management course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other Sheffield Business School foundation year students, then move on to the degree.

You are taught by lecturers with a rich industry background – having held management positions in chain and independent hotels in the UK and abroad – who infuse teaching with research, industry expertise and passion for the hotel industry. You will be provided with a challenging and supportive learning environment where you will experience 'hands-on' practical learning combined with a traditional classroom environment.

You learn through

  • video conferences with international partners
  • a consultancy project with a real-world hotel organisation
  • field trips
  • site visits
  • work with external organisations

In the foundation year, you’ll study wider business topics, while specialising in your chosen subject area. You’ll learn useful skills such as academic writing, work in diverse teams and learn to utilise a wide variety of data sources. In doing so, you’ll fully prepare yourself for undergraduate study.

There is also a focus on business development, with students planning and pitching a hospitality venture to industry collaborators. This course also incorporates computer simulation to assist students in understanding how to develop and manage a hotel property.

Networking opportunities

Industry interaction comes formally through visiting speakers and informally through our association with the Institute of Hospitality, our strong alumni network and the activities of our hospitality society. We're proud to be one of the founding partners of the Classroom to Boardroom event, which introduces you to a variety of stakeholders through the medium of round table discussions and networking activities.

You will frequently engage with the sector and with industry partners throughout your studies. This is done through modules where industry speakers and visits are a prominent feature, and also comes informally through our association with the Institute of Hospitality, our strong alumni network and visiting fellows and the activities of our hospitality society.

You are encouraged to participate in competitions which celebrate success within the industry. Previous students have been winners or finalists of The Young Guns competition, an industry award that recognises those who have excelled during their placement year.
