Following The World Trade and Tourism Council research, Glion has said that the UK hospitality sector is primed for growth, which accounts for 8% of total UK employment.

The World Trade and Tourism Council also predicts that over the next ten years this industry’s contribution to global UK GDP will rise by 4% per year, stronger than any other large western European economy.

London has been namechecked as the main driving force behind the industry’s expansion with 8,000 rooms opened in 2012, plus a further 5,000 rooms to be opened in 2013.

Students will start the course in August 2013.

"We are honoured to have a board of directors comprised of professionals in the industry, who contribute to our efforts in maintaining our curriculum and teaching experience up to date. Glion brings the academic experience to our students that will prepare them to seize opportunities that enable them to become leaders in one of the most promising industries in the world," said Arie van der Spek, interim CEO of Glion Institute of Higher Education.

The new Glion London campus facilities are located in newly renovated buildings at the University of Roehampton. The campus will offer the bachelor degree and postgraduate diploma programmes in hospitality and it is currently enrolling EU, EEA, Swiss or British Overseas Territory nationals.
