Why should I study this programme? If you have the ability but not the qualifications required to apply for our three-year BA Hons Tourism Management programme, this four-year programme will provide you with the stepping stone you need. It begins with a foundation year that will give you a solid grounding from which to progress to degree-level study. You will gain a thorough introduction to business and marketing and an understanding of ethics, enterprise and leadership. You will also learn essential computing, communication and academic writing skills, as well as the ability to manage your studies independently. After your first year, you will study the same courses as those on our three-year BA Hons Tourism Management programme. What careers could I pursue? Graduates from this programme have the same career opportunities as those applying to and graduating from our three-year programme. They will be employable in areas such as tourism marketing, tourism destination management and tourism policy as well as with tour operators and tourism businesses.
