The first thing that comes to our minds when we hear Travel and Hospitality is ‘people’. As the name of the degree suggests, it is all about customer service. Travel and Hospitality degrees prepare candidates to work in diverse working environments all over the world.
Even so, many people confuse Travel and Hospitality degrees with Tourism degrees. What is the difference between these two? The main difference lies in where the employees work. With a Tourism degree, you can work in a museum, national park and so on, whilst with a Travel and Hospitality degree you will work in hotels, restaurants.
This degree is shaped in such a way that candidates acquire skills about hotel management, food preparation and sanitation as well as human resources.
Experts say that it only takes six months for Travel and Hospitality graduates to find a job. The most frequent areas which display the highest number of job opportunities are catering management and hotel management. As a result of their flexible degree, 15% of the graduates choose to combine work with study to broaden their employability chances.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this field will have an addition of 700 jobs, both in management positions and others.
Perhaps the most important benefit is represented by the growth opportunities. This degree will teach you about networking and developing your emotional intelligence, which are of utmost importance in this field.
This degree lasts for three years, out of which one year should be spent abroad. Usually, in the second year of their studies, students go abroad and study in a partner country. The whole idea behind this is to encourage cultural awareness and adaptation.
Additionally, some universities in the UK provide a compulsory internship during which students gather relevant industry experience.
A fantastic university of high class, high ambition and high prospects for the future. I’m proud to have cardiff on my cv and am privileged to be part if such a fantastic institution, I wouldn’t have rather spent my four years at undergraduate level anywhere else.View more

The course I am doing at the moment is really interesting and there is plenty of choices here in Cardiff to suit you. Cardiff Uni has an amazing night life and the city is a great place for shopping. The uni facilities are great and there is something for everyone to get involved in as far as the clubs and societies go. The student union is everything a student could ever need. Careers fairs are especially useful.View more
The lecturers have been very supportive and keen to answer questions, even at odd hours, from the very start and that makes Uni really great! The only con is the lack of in person classes due to covid. Cardiff university still has blended learning- a mix of online and online classes which has restricted us from having the full university experience.View more
