What can I do with my HND in Hospitality Management?

Once you have successfully completed your HND in Hospitality Management, you can continue to finish an undergraduate degree in the field of hospitality or hotel or, perhaps, even the leisure industry or conference or event management. Your HND is equivalent to the first two years of an undergraduate degree so you should be eligible for direct entry to the final year of a three year undergraduate degree in a related field. Different universities will have different entry requirements (in terms of the grade they require in your HND) so it is worth checking this as soon as you decide which university you might like to attend. If you are planning to fund this final year through the Student Finance England student loan scheme, you should be funded for this final year but you can check this with the Student Finance Advisor at the College if you have any concerns.

Alternatively, if you wish to go straight into work with your HND, you will find that you can apply for more senior or more specialist roles than before. Again, depending on the grades that you have achieved during your HND, you may even be able to apply for graduate positions and, of course, your work experience from before and during your studies will all count too!
