The study investigates hospitality students’ attitude towards hospitality education and hospitality careers. A qualitative approach was adapted to record students’ attitude in the UK and Cyprus. The findings revealed that participants share common concerns and expectations regarding hospitality education and careers. A number of cognitive-person and external variables are perceived to act as influencing factors on hospitality education and careers, raising questions with regard to the student preparedness for the industry. This study provides a theoretical underpinning to hospitality literature that can be used to further fruitful thinking with implications for practice and further research.
