Gain knowledge and insight across the breadth of the tourism sector, enabling you to choose the career path that interests you most. You can pursue a career in management in a range of tourism areas, including airlines, tour operators, destination management and tourism media. By studying events theory, policy and practice, along with business management, you develop an in-depth understanding of what it takes to plan and manage memorable and successful events and other leisure activities. There is also the opportunity to gain international experience by studying abroad and completing a placement abroad. As part of the course, you get the opportunity to work on real projects to build your skills and professional experience. Recently students have contributed to developing the network of the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum, helped organise their annual conference in Gibraltar, and been involved in developing Operation Make Safe, which seeks to work with hotels, tour and transport operators to raise awareness among staff of child protection issues. Previous students have been involved in the Tourism Management Institute Hot Topic conference and the fourth International Adventure Conference. You also have the opportunity to attend the World Travel Market event in London, a major industry event. Fieldwork and site visits also play a key role in your studies.
