This degree is ideal if you wish to develop and succeed as a professional travel and tourism manager. Tourism is currently one of the world’s fastest growing industries and the course will equip you with a range of transferable skills, which can be used to meet the ever changing demands of this dynamic business. Our degree focuses on employability, and you can take advantage of a paid internship on the sandwich route, which can provide opportunities to work in a supervisory capacity within the travel and tourism sector throughout the world. The programme allows for a great deal of flexibility in career choices, leaving students well placed for career opportunities throughout the international marketplace such as working for airlines and airports, managing theme parks and tourist attractions, managing heritage sites, tourist information centre managers, cruise operations, market research management and consultancy, tour operators, tourism development officers or hospitality graduate schemes. Students from our course have recently secured roles at British Airways, Blackpool FC, Co-operative Travel, Premier Inn, Marriott, Hilton, Disney and many others. Past graduates who have completed an internship have progressed to senior positions in companies such as British Airways, Virgin, First Choice and Ernst and Young Management Consultants. A feature of this course is the opportunity to study abroad, with students having the option to take their second year modules at our Cyprus Campus. Additionally, students can take part in our international field visits to destinations such as Cambodia. In addition to this if you choose the sandwich route you can benefit from a 48-week paid internship with employment and learning opportunities, available throughout the UK, Europe, North America, the Far East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
