Hospitality and tourism management courses ranked 4th by QS World University Rankings 2018

Our hospitality and tourism management courses have been ranked 4th in the world by the QS World University Rankings 2018.

This prestigious ranking follows in the footsteps of the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management being given a top-five ranking and five stars in the most recent QS World University Rankings. The School is also currently ranked number one in both the Guardian University Guide 2017 and the Complete University Guide 2017 and is ranked in the top five globally for its publications.


This ranking simply reinforces our world-class reputation for hospitality, tourism and events, and shows that we offer our students stimulating and industry-relevant courses.
