Overview

To meet the educational and professional needs of each student, the International Hospitality and Tourism Management at Cardiff Metropolitan University offers three awards and exit points: Postgraduate Certificate; Postgraduate Diploma and MSc.  Learning and teaching strategies are designed to promote active engagement of the student with the subject area and reflect the strong vocational emphasis of the awards.  

Careers:

All students undertake a live consultancy project through the Industry Project Management module, which provides an opportunity to engage with employers in the industry. 

Student have the option to undertake the Internship module.  The duration of this (unpaid) internship is either for a minimum of 20 days, which will normally be undertaken during term-time one day a week throughout semester one and semester two or in blocks of time during the semester breaks.

Alternatively, the students can undertake an internship (paid or unpaid) for the duration of 10-12 weeks (usually engaging in a full time role in an organisation) and this will normally be completed during semester three which would mean that the engagement with the final project would be deferred until September when the internship is completed and 120 credits are awarded.

Students undertake operational, supervisory and if possible, management tasks and duties within the organisation;  During their internship students are expected to follow the same work pattern as other employees in the organisation and to perform routine work consistent with that which they aspire to on successful completion of their programme of study.  They will also undertake a work based project tailored to meet the needs of the organisation.
