Our research environment

The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management (SHTM) celebrates pioneering research, world-class teaching, and the postgraduate contribution to industry in areas such as innovation and migration – fields of work that regularly see us ranked first in the major UK league tables and fourth for tourism research worldwide.

The key to our success

Our brilliant staff and students are undoubtedly the key to our success, merging our work at SHTM with an incredible range of subjects, from economics and history to statistics and drama. Our 40-strong, international research community has created a dynamic and interdisciplinary postgrad culture.

Investment in SHTM

Sponsorships, investments from global research funds and international collaboration all contribute to helping us to maintain our role as global leaders in tourism research. Internally, interdisciplinary collaborations are equally important in our research outlook and include geography, economics, sociology, and environmental science.

Global leaders

We have been awarded two research fellowships, whilst five academic staff have been visiting professors to institutions around the globe. Our expertise is recognised by key international advisory boards as well as International Advisory Panels. Our staff and students have won prestigious awards, such as the Tourism for Peace & Development Medal. In 2013, the School received the Tourism Society Award for its outstanding contribution to tourism.

Looking ahead

We are bound by an unwavering commitment to maintaining and developing a sustainable, vibrant and globally recognised research centre, forging new alliances with international partners, and promoting the sector through first-class teaching and research.
