Course summary

The aim of this programme is to provide graduates with a qualification that meets the needs of the Welsh, UK and global restaurant and hospitality industry, aiding employability. Half of the programme is delivered on placement in industry and the ‘taught’ modules are delivered online. At level 4, students split their studies equally between more theoretical, taught modules (60 credits delivered online) and restaurant-based practical placement modules (60 credits) within an introductory framework. Students study on a three term basis, 40 credits per term (or 20 credits for PT students). At level 5, this pattern of delivery is repeated, advancing to development modules and then implementation modules.
