Students in England can now enroll in University to study Pizza.
Manchester Metropolitan University has teamed up with the Pizza Hut restaurant chain to offer the course.
The students won’t spend all their time just studying pizza though, they’ll also learn everything needed to run their own successful businesses, from health and safety aspects to financial analysis.
- “Over the next few years we will work hard to provide our apprentices and team members with the best training and development so that we can equip them with skills for life, not just for working in a restaurant,” Pizza Hut’s HR director Kathryn Austin said.
More than 1,500 students will be enrolled in the next five years. KFC and McDonald’s also offer similar apprenticeships in the United Kingdom.
Other unconventional degree courses
currently on offer in the U.K. include Ethical Hacking at the University of Abertay in Dundee and Baking Technology Management at London’s SouthBank University.
