MSE has been running university pathway programmes in Business Management, Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Management and Marketing Management at Levels 4, 5 and 6 on the Qualifications and Credits Framework (QCF) since 2009.
However, from July 2012 MSE is offering a new Integrated Work Placement as part of the syllabus. The placements are delivered concurrently, allowing the students to follow the academic and vocational programmes at the same time, with 15 hours per week dedicated to each element. Vocational placements are available in Culinary Management, Food and Beverage Management, Front Desk Operations and Back Office Operations.
The programmes are internationally accredited by the Association of Business Executives (ABE) the only vocational courses in the UK to hold this distinction leading to recognition at over 100 universities globally.
Duncan Watson, Managing Director and Principal at MSE, said, “We believe in the future tertiary education will be defined by two words: ‘international’ and ‘relevant’. Our new integrated Academic and Vocational Pathway Programmes, developed in partnership with ABE, allow students to build a composite international university education combined with meaningful professional experience.”
Mayfair School of English was established in 1986 and is based on Oxford Street in Central London. The school also offers General English, Business English and exam preparation classes.
