Curriculum

In Year 1, all students enter the BSc (Hons) Scheme in Hotel and Tourism Management. No specific programme option is available at this time. All students are introduced to university-level study and to general subjects such as IE and AIDA, leadership and intra-personal development. They are required to complete a healthy lifestyle course and some language and communication requirements. During this year, all students take an introductory course in hotel, tourism and event management and four other discipline-related subjects offered by the School of Hotel and Tourism Management. The other subjects are all general university requirements (GUR).

 

After completing their first year, students study discipline-specific subjects (DSR).  At the end of Year 1, students choose one of five programme options: Major with specialism in Hotel Management; Major with specialism in Smart Tourism and Hospitality; Major with specialism in Event and Experience Management; Major + Secondary Major in AIDA; or Major + Secondary Major in IE.*

 

In Year 2, students study subjects in the specific discipline they have chosen. They also start to take subjects in their chosen minor or free electives.

 

In Year 3, students begin to study advanced topics in their chosen disciplines, minor and/or free electives. The courses in this year focus on case studies and applications.

 

In Year 4, students study advanced subjects. Depending on their selected programme option, they may also either begin work on a thesis or enrol in a Capstone project. They must also complete 6 months or 960 hours of cumulative work experience to fulfil the work-integrated education requirement.

 

* The decision to admit a student into an option is made by the School based on the student’s choice, overall GPA in Year 1 study and/or interview results. Students will be asked to rank their choices during the second semester of their Year 1 study for the School’s consideration and approval.

* Students may be allowed to transfer between the three major with specialism options before completing their work-integrated education requirement if they, after the transfer, can still manage to complete all of the credits required for graduation within 4 years.
