Free language courses
Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.
You may be able to go on a European or international study exchange while you are at Brookes. Most exchanges take place in the second year. Although we will help as much as we can with your plans, ultimately you are responsible for organising and funding this study abroad.
This programme has been designed to provide a coherent and coordinated approach to progressive achievement of the graduate attributes that are necessary for a career in hospitality and hotel management and for postgraduate study. Hospitality and hotel management is core across the programme with subject specific modules being offered at levels 4, 5 and 6.
Learning and Teaching
With a strong vocational focus the programme incorporates live projects and practitioner involvement in the delivery and assessment of the modules. There is a mix of academic and practitioner input into teaching, assessment and feedback where possible.
Practitioner involvement may work on a number of levels, through guest speakers, input into assessment task design, and assessing and feeding back to students on their problem-solving approaches and the practical viability of the solutions they devise.
Assessment tasks take a variety of forms, reflecting students’ varied learning styles, the programme’s learning outcomes, and the demands of an enquiry-based learning approach, including:
- individual and group assignments
- case studies
- participation in product design
- and occasionally, time-restricted assessments.
The need for formative assessment early on in the programme of study, and, indeed throughout the programme is recognised fully, together with the value of feed forward opportunities provided by the programme structure. Face-to-face feedback is used to supplement written feedback on at least one module at each level.
Graduates can pursue a number of exciting roles in the International Hospitality and Hotel Management industry.
- Hospitality Employer Graduate Schemes
- Food and Beverage Management Trainee
- Hotel Manager
- Events Manager
- Catering Manager
