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 international tourism course covers all the essential knowledge to give you a solid foundation from which to pursue your interests. You’ll be equipped with knowledge about tourism in relation to sustainable economic development and civil society. In addition to this, you’ll have the flexibility to take on optional modules and take part in practice-based learning opportunities. The diverse style of learning will develop your skills and increase your prospects of employment once you graduate.

The events management module will give you a great understanding of the events industry and everything that goes into planning memorable ones. You’ll cover planning, strategy, and management while analysing festivals and the requirements of different event types. You’ll also develop your own event concept and produce a portfolio to show your understanding of planning specific events.

Our graduates have gone on to work for Marriot, Thomas Cook, Etihad, and many more. The course opens doors to many different industries too, including tourist boards, local authorities, airports, hotels, and museums.

How is the BSc International Tourism Management taught?

The course aims to develop a wide range of skills, including your research and critical thinking abilities, your numeracy and IT skills and your knowledge of core economic concepts. You will go on field trips as well as attending lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials. You will have the chance to exchange ideas at seminars and at question-and-answer sessions in lectures, and to work in groups and examine case studies. You will also do your own independent study and directed reading.

What will you gain?

The course will provide you with highly relevant and key business management skills, including problem solving, team-working/interpersonal skills, leadership and time management. You will also gain essential communication and decision making experience for a dynamic and fast-paced international environment, including the ability to forecast and evaluate the impact of tourism development in specific contexts. Planning and marketing skills such as data analysis, critical thinking and innovation are also core to the course, as well as knowledge of the latest digital technology and software available for business.

Assessment

You will be assessed through exams, your final-year project, written coursework, including fieldwork reports and workshop reports, presentations and group work. We will be looking, among other things, at your understanding of theory and practice, your ability to assemble evidence and use it to solve problems, your awareness of different approaches and your capacity to sustain a coherent and reasoned argument and make judgements.

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