Tourism is an international industry that plays a key economic role in many countries around the world. It is dynamic, customer-focused and provides graduates with exciting worldwide opportunities. This specialist course allows you to combine the best of both worlds – studying the academic aspects of tourism management and gaining first-hand industry experience. All the various aspects of tourism will be covered during your four years, including visitor attractions, hotels, theatres, events and business tourism, music venues and travel. Opportunities during your degree include: being business mentors to school pupils, being a ‘mystery shopper’ for an Airport Tourism project, taking part in course-related study trips, attending industry conferences and being eligible to become a member of The Tourism Society and Institute of Hospitality. We believe it is important to recognise and reward our students’ achievements; as a result, industry-sponsored prizes are awarded each year to the top student of each stage.
