In your first two years of study you will complete 200 work
placement hours with an employer from the leisure industry,
allowing you to gain valuable experience in your field of study.
After your second year, you also have an option to pause your
studies and take 12 months in industry should you wish to.
Work placements put you at the heart of industry – your time
spent on placement provides you with opportunities to put the
theoretical knowledge you have learnt into practice, preparing you
for a future career in the industry of your choice. Recent
placements have included positions at Disney, hotels in Cyprus,
travel agents in Canada, National Trusts and blue arrow events.
