MSc Tourism and Hospitality


Gabor Neumann was worried his English skills would not be good enough to study for his MSc in Tourism and Hospitality. But after meeting with our friendly and supportive staff, he has been improving his career prospects and hopes to use his degree to help his family business.

Of course, I had worries. But the staff answered all my concerns and were really supportive and friendly. I felt so relieved.

"I came to England ten years ago from Hungary and worked in the hospitality sector as a receptionist at a five-star hotel in Covent Garden. I was always ambitious, but the desire to improve myself built up over time and I just knew it was time to do something about it.

My aim is to help the family business. We operate in both Hungary and the UK so I want to use the skills I learn at University to benefit our company. Applying was quick and easy and the staff were really friendly which definitely helped the overall process.

Coming to university is a huge step and of course, I had worries. Was my English good enough? Would I be able to manage the course? But staff at the University answered all my concerns and were really supportive and friendly. I felt so relieved."
