A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY

EDUCATION IN THE UNITED KINGDOM AND FRANCE

Hugues SÉRAPHIN & Charlie MANSFIELD

 

Abstract

Sufficient historical detail is provided on the development of tourism in France and the United Kingdom to provide a context for the discussion of how comparative education practices can inform and improve the provision of university education in Europe. Findings from a recent empirical comparative study of university provision for tourism and hospitality studies are presented and analysed to progress the work in this field of research. Finally, very recent moves, especially in industry-specific education in France, are combined with the teaching initiative called CLIL (Content & Language Integrated Learning) to offer a way forward for educators in tourism and hospitality departments in higher education in Europe.
