This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Tourism Management but you don’t have the standard entry requirements. We prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. You can then go on to study the full undergraduate degree. Our course places a strong emphasis on developing the skills and qualities you’ll need to succeed in this diverse, global industry. And it’s an industry full of opportunity, employing three million people and contributing £127 billion each year to the UK economy alone. Such a massive sector needs smart, well qualified people to contribute to an industry that’s been transformed by e-commerce, online review sites and a growth in ‘sustainable’ tourism. A degree from the University of East London will launch your own career journey in style. We’ll give you a solid understanding of the basic business principles underlying tourism wherever you are in the world. You’ll learn about managing destinations, resources and people, marketing and finance, and sub-sectors such as accommodation, visitor attractions and transport. You’ll also have the chance to take a placement year, where you’ll put your growing knowledge to the test with a job in tourism that will give you valuable experience and a stand-out CV.
