The international tourism industry is a dynamic, changing sector and graduates of this course will be equipped with the creative tourism management skills and knowledge to allow them to adapt and be successful in this diverse business environment. The course is accredited by the Tourism Management Institute (TMI) and the Tourism Society, the professional bodies for tourism management in the UK. This degree has been specifically designed to meet the needs of tourism employers and to provide you with the qualifications and skills necessary for real-world success and a distinct advantage in an increasingly competitive careers market. There is also the option to complete a year’s work placement to prepare you for your future career. In previous years students have participated in at least one optional study trip to a European destination. The programme team also aims to provide a regional or national study trip annually to a tourism attraction or similar destination. All of your essential reading will be available from the University's Library which means that all your essential course reading materials are available for free when you start with us.
