Practical work experience at the 5-star 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 multipurpose conference centre. The 5* resort was the venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup and hosted the 2014 NATO summit. 

During all years of the course students will carry out blocks of practical work experience at the Celtic Manor Resort, where you will gain a wide variety of skills that are required at operational, supervisory and management levels in the hospitality industry – ranging from rooms division, food and beverage, conference, banqueting and event management.  

In years one and two, as well as time at Celtic Manor Resort during term time, you will also be encouraged to seek summer work, either at smaller boutique establishments or with other hotel and hospitality providers in the UK and internationally.
