Course summary

This unique collaboration combines vocational training at the Marriott Hotel with academic study on campus at UWTSD.

This exciting programme is the result of a close partnership between Marriott Hotels, widely recognised as one of the world’s leading hotel brands and University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Course Overview

The programme comprises two years of full-time study. Each year is divided into three four-month blocks, two of which are spent studying on a University Campus with the remaining block spent on placement in the Marriott Hotel.

Students will therefore spend a total of eight months (two four-month blocks) within a Marriott Hotel, working in a range of departmental areas. Placement during the first year of the degree will have a more operational emphasis; the second year will combine operational duties at a more advanced level together with involvement in hotel administration and management. Students will develop enhanced guest service skills and a critical understanding of the operational requirements associated with different departments in the hotel.

For the remaining sixteen months (four four-month blocks), students will pursue academic study on a University Campus. The modules studied will develop a critical understanding of essential management theory and practice, provide a global context within which hotel organisations operate, and engage students with principles of sustainable business practice. This will provide a theoretical foundation of subject knowledge that can then be applied within a practical context during the placements at the Marriott Hotel.

Career Opportunities

The International Hotel Management BA (Hons) programme is designed to produce graduates with both a strong academic understanding of the industry and the practical skills required by the sector.

Feedback from employers tells us that many undergraduate hospitality programmes produce graduates with good theoretical knowledge, but who lack practical experience.

The vocational emphasis of this programme puts our graduates in a particularly strong position when applying for jobs or graduate management training schemes in hotel organisations.

The Marriott Hotel has a global reputation for excellence, and extensive placement experience with this hotel group help our graduates to stand out in the job market.

Students who do well in their academic studies and on placement at a Marriott Hotel are well placed to be selected onto the prestigious Marriott “Voyager” Graduate Management Training programme subject to a successful interview.
