Course summary

The Foundation Year in Business is offered as an entry route to a business degree for those who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study.

The Foundation Year in Business is taught by the same lecturing staff who teach on our degree courses and you are taught in small group seminars, workshops and lectures. You will be able to develop transferable skills in business, communication and problem-solving.

You will enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses in this subject area.

Overview

Our tourism management course combines theory with practice – with a focus on the latest global trends and developments in international tourism – and a career-enhancing opportunity to learn the world’s most widely spoken language.

You’ll study career-relevant topics such as sustainability, cultural tourism, tourism in developing countries, and gain an insight into distinct social science perspectives. You'll also have the opportunity to build your professional industry experience ­– in the UK and abroad – with a range of work placements and field trips.

Aside from gaining the knowledge and skills to embark on a career in international tourism management, you’ll also learn Mandarin with the help of an expert language tutor. You'll get a chance to practice your new language skills by travelling to China for a study abroad year.

What will you gain?

You will graduate with the confidence to examine, critique and evaluate various impacts of tourism upon economies, communities and the environment and how these impacts can be effectively managed.

You will also develop key transferable skills including analytical thinking and problem solving along with the ability to work effectively in teams, and be able to present and communicate business management ideas with confidence.

Assessment

The course will provide you with opportunities to test your knowledge and understanding informally through ‘formative’ assessment. This will be completed before your formal ‘summative’ assessment which will count towards your final marks. Each module normally contains at least one piece of formative assessment from which you will receive feedback from your tutor. Formative assessments are developmental and any grade you receive from formative assessment does not count towards your final marks.

Careers

There is an exciting diversity of tourism careers across the private, public and voluntary sectors, with roles for graduates within the tourism sector including;

  • Business Development Officers
  • Customer Service Agents
  • Graduate Trainee Managers
  • HR Executives
  • Marketing Executives
  • Project Managers
  • Travel Consultants
