University of Surrey partners with Sun Yat-sen

The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management will offer dual degree programmes with Sun Yat-sen Business School in China.

The University of Surrey is proud to announce a partnership with Sun Yat-sen Business School (SYSBS) at Sun Yat-sen University in China, to provide a dual degree programme which offers many benefits to SYSBS students.

The dual degree programme involves students studying BSc Tourism Management for two years at SYSBS. Following successful admission, the students can transfer to Surrey to enter into year two and complete two years of either BSc International Tourism Management or BSc International Hospitality and Tourism Management. On successful completion of the programme students obtain a degree award from both SYSBS and Surrey.

The partnership brings together two distinguished institutions, both leaders in the study of tourism in their respective countries. Established in 1985, SYSBS is one of the oldest and most renowned business schools in China, while the University of Surrey has a leading international reputation for teaching and research in the fields of hospitality and tourism.

Professor Graham Miller, Head of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, commented: “We are delighted to offer a dual degree programme in partnership with Sun Yat-sen Business School. The combination of joint expertise in hospitality and tourism, an international study experience and a dual qualification from institutions with an outstanding reputation is a compelling opportunity for students at Sun Yat-sen Business School and we look forward to welcoming them to Surrey.”

More information on the programme can be found on the SHTM website. You can also learn more about Hospitality & Tourism programmes at the University of Surrey, or explore the Sun Yat-sen University website.
