Level 7 Executive Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management
The Level 7 Executive Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism Management provides an industry relevant postgraduate academic progression route for those who want to build on their bachelor's level qualification or improve their career progression.
This university endorsed international qualification is appropriate for both hospitality and tourism graduates and experienced hospitality and tourism managers without a first degree.
It also provides an effective route for graduates in other fields who wish to make a career change into the growing hospitality and tourism sectors.
This is a 360 Guided Learning Hour programme where students are required to demonstrate interpersonal, self study and research and presentation skills throughout the qualification. Assessments are developed to encourage skills that will provide students with a very strong foundation for further advancement in the hospitality and tourism sectors.
Students can achieve the Guided Learning Hours in a combination of face to face classroom interactions, attending seminars, visits to hotels, self study and group study, as well as independent study and research work.
The postgraduate Level 7 Executive Diploma assessment methods have been designed to enable students to demonstrate Level 7 outcomes for this level of qualification.
Given the broad and highly varied nature of the hospitality and tourism industry, candidates will need to demonstrate the higher-level skills and qualities specified in the Level 7 outcomes within a non-homogeneous vocational context.
Assessment involves investigative assignments, presentations and action research activities. The assessment of candidates' work is centre-based, against the specified learning outcomes and directed by CTH. All centres are expected to demonstrate a robust assessment system. In order to manage the quality of assessment within approved centres, CTH carries out external marking and moderation of assessments.
- All students must be 22 years old at the time of enrolment.
- They will also need to have successfully completed the CTH Level 6 Professional Diploma or a Bachelor’s degree with Honours in hospitality, tourism or business management from a recognised UK university, or other recognised relevant qualification at Level 6. Evidence of degrees or other recognised qualifications outside the UK should be evaluated through UK ENIC (formerly known as NARIC).
- All students without English as a first language must hold at least IELTS 6.0 or other evidence of competence in English at this level such as a University letter confirming the student’s degree course was delivered and assessed in English.
