Course summary

Bournemouth is the perfect location to study tourism, being a popular seaside resort with many tourism and hospitality businesses and opportunities.Underpinned by our long-standing and internationally recognised teaching and research in tourism and hospitality, this degree is suitable for those with career aspirations related to global hospitality and the wider travel and tourism industry. It will provide you with an understanding of the origins, development and organisation of the tourism and hospitality industries, and the opportunities and challenges facing organisations operating in and across the various sectors.Global revenues and occupancy rates for the accommodation sector have increased year-on-year, as have international passenger arrivals and receipts, leading to the creation of many new jobs and small and medium-sized businesses while sustaining growth in this and other sectors such as food and drink, transport, visitor attractions and travel distribution. These changes have given rise to new opportunities but also threats for commercial and other operators and the markets and publics they serve, and the most successful businesses will be those with managers that understand how to compete in what is a dynamic and varied collection of industries. Combining the study of tourism and hospitality, and focusing on international issues means you will understand how to survive and thrive in such an environment, and be well-placed to secure graduate positions in the UK or overseas.You’ll have an opportunity to learn a new language; French, Spanish or Mandarin as well as residential fieldtrips in the UK and overseas which have included Jersey and Malta. You can also expand your horizons and spend some time studying abroad with one of our 40 partner institutions in the USA, Australia, Europe and Asia.In year three you’ll gain vital experience during your 30-week work placement in the UK or overseas which will give you the opportunity to turn theory into practice and build a network of professional contacts to help you secure a management-level position after graduating. 90% of our students are working or studying 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education, 2019 - There was insufficient data to publish information specifically for this course. This is either because the course size is small or respondent numbers were low. Therefore, the data displayed is for all students studying tourism, transport and travel). This course is taught by tourism and hospitality specialists who are actively involved in research that informs the future of these industries; as well as notable experts who share their expertise during regular guest lectures.Undergraduate students who will successfully complete the Digital Marketing unit have the opportunity to achieve the IDM qualification level 4 Certificate in Digital Marketing, as a result of exemptions awarded by the IDM for the Digital Marketing unit. This course is accredited by The Institute of Hospitality, Institute of Travel and Tourism, Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing, Tourism Management Institute and United Nations World Tourism Organisation.
