Welcome


Our mission is to inspire and educate the events, tourism and hospitality leaders of tomorrow so that they can make a positive difference in the world.

We aspire to undertake cutting-edge research and provide an education that will lead our students into rewarding careers. We are very proud that the latest available official statistics show that 97.7%* of our students are in work or further study six months after graduation and are delighted that in the National Student Survey 2018 we achieved an overall student satisfaction rating of 94.48%. *DLHE 2016/17

Leeds is home to some of the UK’s most progressive tourism and hospitality businesses, and the city regularly hosts world-class events and festivals.  This makes it a great place to study, to work and to visit.  Please visit our latest news to find out about our latest achievement, and opportunities to study or to collaborate on research.

“My masters really opened my eyes to the strategies and theories that shape the management of sporting events. Now, when I plan an event for BUCS, I know I will create something that will meet the long-term goals of the organisation and will enhance the student experience through sport.”
