Kedleston Road campus 504x257 Buxton Joins Global Network Of Hotel School Training

Date posted: 14 October 2013

An international hospitality organisation whose work is recognised as a passport to success across all five continents has given its stamp of approval to the University of Derby Buxton.

In another success for its policy of preparing students for the real world, the University has been admitted to the International Association of Hotel Schools, known and respected around the globe as EUHOFA.

The Association unites the world's leading hotel and tourism schools, and works to ensure the highest quality of education.

Only four other UK hotel schools have been accepted for membership, and the University of Derby Buxton was inspired to join EUHOFA because of the opportunities it presented to give an international insight into programme development and delivery.

EUHOFA contributes to the constant improvement and progress of hospitality training and promotes the achievements of more than 140 hotel schools, colleges and universities in 45 countries, in all five continents.

Tony Loynes, University Subject Manager for Tourism, Hospitality, Events and Spa programmes, said: "It internationalises the curriculum. This means that our students will be better prepared for future management positions in the hospitality industry worldwide."

Dr Peter Dewhurst, Strategic Director for the University of Derby Buxton, added: "The success of our application to become a EUHOFA member is further testament to the success of our real world learning approach to higher education and the part it plays in producing work-ready graduates ready to drive the future of the hotel industry."
