In terms of Higher Education (HE), France and England have much in common, notably the political agendas of widening access and participation, the development of new information technologies (leading to the re-thinking of teaching methods and research organisation) and the enhancement of research (especially in the perspective of global competition and international recognition). The two countries have nevertheless some important structural differences regarding HE institutions themselves and the organisation of the programmes and qualifications they offer. Based on the assumption that there could be a lot for British lecturers to learn from the experiences of other countries, this paper, synthetical rather than analytical, presents how the four fields of Hospitality, Leisure, Sport and Tourism are tackled and taught in Higher Education in France.
