The Euro BA in International Hospitality Management allows you to study for three years in three different countries, including a third-year semester at the University of Brighton.
The aim of the programme is for you to complete a UK undergraduate degree programme through studying and working across Europe. The language of tuition throughout the programme is English.
Run by a consortium of five European Hotel, Hospitality and Management Schools, the degree offers a unique opportunity for you to engage in a truly European BA award that is learnt both in the workplace and in the classroom.
The curriculum and its delivery is designed to reflect the needs of the hospitality industry for a flexible and innovative workforce, able to meet the ever-changing demands of the marketplace. A common curriculum across the consortium ensures an integrated progression as you experience three different centres of learning.
The course prepares you for a management career in an international hotel and hospitality setting. The emphasis is on hotel and culinary skills at a number of the institutions, and on broad business management skills and industry diversity at others. But in all cases, the programme gives you the chance to focus on areas that suit your interest.
Successful students will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in International Hospitality Management by the University of Brighton. The opportunity to qualify for a dual award is available through the completion of extra credits (ECTS).

Sunny, friendly and relaxed, there’s lots to do and enjoy in Eastbourne – music and arts festivals, theatre, galleries and sports – and all against the backdrop of the beach and the beautiful South Downs.
Eastbourne hosts some major sporting events, from Eastbourne Extreme – one of the biggest extreme sports festivals in the UK – to Eastbourne International, an annual tennis tournament where some of the world’s finest players prepare for Wimbledon.
Eastbourne has a close-knit community feel. From where ever you are on campus every place you need to go is around 15 minutes away on foot – the beach, the town centre and the South Downs. There is a great selection of clubs, pubs, restaurants and shops and always plenty of student-friendly deals on offer.
Campus where this course is taught
Located in one of the sunniest towns in the UK, our Eastbourne campus sits between the hills of the South Downs National Park and the south coast.
The campus has extensive sporting facilities, including a sports hall, fitness suite, climbing wall, swimming pool, three gyms, a dance studio and an artificial training pitch. For sport and exercise students, there are also exercise physiology labs, a human movement laboratory and an environmental chamber.
Podiatry students gain real-life experience in the Leaf Hospital clinic, with its comprehensive range of diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, while physiotherapy students are taught in specialist practical skills rooms. The Culinary Arts Studio allows hospitality students to engage in workplace simulations and consumer research.
