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 passion for travel fired my ambition to work in the industry and my course helped to refine my career goals. I particularly enjoyed the environmental tourism and marketing aspects of my degree. Specialist knowledge of marketing in tourism is crucial in my current role, where I promote cruise holidays through product announcements, press trips and customer marketing campaigns.”
