Leading the field

July 15, 2005

London's hosting of the 30th Olympiad in 2012 brings a unique opportunity to raise the profile of hospitality, leisure, sport and tourism subjects and to ensure their recognition as essential contributors to the Games and its legacy.

Our courses provide the skills, knowledge and understanding that are essential for success in such a multifaceted and complex event.

From the sciences that underpin the preparation of elite athletes to the coaching and sports management capacity required to support growing participation in sport and the provision of facilities and opportunities for active leisure; from understanding the needs of tourists and the management of travel and tourism to skills essential for the provision of successful events and high-quality hospitality facilities; from our working relationships with industry and employers to our well-established multicultural awareness, we can rightly claim to be the Olympic subjects.
