Number one for Hospitality and Tourism in the Good University Guide

The School of Hospitality and Tourism at the University of Surrey has been ranked number one in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2014, maintaining its pre-eminent position from the 2013 league tables.

Topping the Good University Guide in the field of Hospitality, Leisure, Recreation and Tourism completes a hat-trick of successes for the School, which was recently ranked as number one in the country in both the Guardian University Guide and the National Student Survey (NSS).

The exceptional NSS results were an important factor in this latest achievement, as was the School’s research quality, which was rated the best in the country.

Professor Graham Miller, Head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, said that it was a considerable achievement to be ranked number one: “Our student numbers have grown, we have raised the entry grades required and our student satisfaction has increased. Coupled with growing research income, the school is really going from strength to strength.”

The School’s continued success stems from a number of other factors, too: constantly rising entry tariffs that ensure only the best students are admitted, world-class academics who are experts in their respective fields, and a truly international approach that offers more opportunities than ever both for undergraduates to study abroad and for the best international students to come to Surrey.

All this is combined with the School’s unsurpassed industry connections – reflected both in the relevance of the programmes offered and in the record number of Professional Training placements available – which give students a real advantage in their graduate prospects and future careers.
