Surrey wins 5th place in world for hospitality and tourism

The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management has been ranked fifth in the world by the Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) in the Hospitality, Leisure, Sport & Tourism sector out of more than 26,000 degree-granting institutions of higher education.

This award follows in the footsteps of the School being given a top-five ranking and five stars in this year’s QS World University Rankings and it is currently ranked number one in both the Guardian University Guide 2017 and the Complete University Guide2017.

The CWUR publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students, as well as the prestige of the faculty members and the quality of their research, without relying on surveys and university data submissions.

Professor Graham Miller, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, said:  “This second top five world ranking reinforces the proud tradition hospitality has at Surrey, as many of the global leaders of the industry studied with us.

“It reinforce our world-class reputation for our research in hospitality, tourism and events, and shows that we offer our students, stimulating and industry-relevant programmes. This is why we are very proud to be continuing this tradition and welcome this ranking as recognition of our continued success as a global leader in our field.”
