Practical work experience at the 5* Celtic Manor Resort

Students on the BA (Hons) Hotel and Hospitality Management course will have the opportunity to combine classroom learning with practical hands on experience at the world-renowned Celtic Manor Resort


The Celtic Manor Resort is a golf, spa and leisure hotel and resort in Newport, South Wales. It consists of three hotels, a country inn, luxury lodges, two spas, six restaurants, three championship golf courses, high ropes courses, adventure golf and a multi-purpose conference centre. The 5* resort was the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup and hosted the 2014 NATO summit. 


During the first and third years students will have weekly practical work experience at the Celtic Manor Resort, where you will gain a wide variety of skills that are required at operational and management levels in the hospitality industry - ranging from rooms division, food and beverage, conference, banqueting and event management.


In year two, as well as time at Celtic Manor Resort, you will also undertake an external placement, either at the smaller boutique establishments offered by Welsh Rarebits, or through other hotel and hospitality partners in the UK and internationally.
