Constantly enhancing the quality of our students’ experience is CHME’s number one priority, with this in mind

CHME was proud to be involved with the Young Guns Hospitality Student of the Year Award for several years with their co-sponsors Lexington Catering, The Institute of Hospitality and Caterer.

CHME then took the lead working closely with a new partner the RAF Club, Piccadilly, The Caterer and the Institute of Hospitality. All CHME institutions were encouraged to enter their very best final year students for this prestigious and longstanding award. The final event was held in March 2020 just before the restrictions were introduced owing to the Covid pandemic. However, in 2021, we replaced this competition with a video competition which does not involve travel or mixing in groups. See below for more details.

Reflecting on teaching practice, producing high quality research and maintaining meaningful links with industry all contribute to the provision of valuable educational programmes. In addition, we encourage students to become actively involved in CHME activities.

Networking with students and academics from other universities and colleges, gaining an understanding of the wider educational environment and engaging in debate can all deliver tangible benefits to students.

Students can attend any CHME event, but the central focus is their involvement in the Institute of Hospitalty's Passion4Hospitality debate held in March each year, this event attracts hospitality management students from throughout the UK.
