About

The Hospitality and Tourism Management programme at the University of Surrey has an outstanding reputation in the sector and runs the largest hospitality, tourism and events PhD programme in the world.

Overview

What you will study

The Hospitality and Tourism Management programme at the University of Surrey takes around three years of full-time study. You’ll take on a structured, supervised programme of scholarly research, leading to a thesis that makes an original contribution to the field and is suitable to be published in a series of high-quality, refereed journal articles.

You’ll be assigned two supervisors with expertise in your area; normally one who is an expert in your subject, and one who is an expert in methodology. Your supervisors will guide you through your PhD, from developing your project through to your analysis and writing your thesis. You’ll normally meet with your supervisor every four weeks when studying full-time, and every eight weeks when studying part-time.

There’s no formal teaching as part of your PhD programme, but you’ll benefit from a range of support and learning opportunities in addition to your supervision meetings. These include a tailored weekly programme of formal research training in research methodology and career development. You’ll have the chance to present and discuss your research at our weekly research seminars. You’ll also be able to take any of our MSc modules, and join our range of interactive workshops that run throughout the year, exploring topics such as personal effectiveness, information skills, presenting research and job skills. You’ll also be able to  qualify as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy by completing the Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching.

We encourage our students to attend international conferences and training courses, and can support your travel to these events.
