This degree programme gives you a broad understanding of the industry and empowers you with the transferable skills and understanding that this field demands.

If you're currently working in the travel and tourism industry and want to update your management skills, this qualification may help enhance your career.

What will this course cover?

You'll begin this course looking into the structure and development of the air transport industry. In the first year you'll focus on finance and economics, travel and tourism marketing, and the importance of managing customer service. You'll develop a deep understanding of the industry's key sustainability and operational challenges. We are looking for adaptable, forward-thinking applicants who can develop strong leadership and management qualities.

We'll give you the opportunity to undertake seasonal work experience which will provide you with further insight into the international travel and tourism sector. During this time you'll be able to fine-tune the skills learned in the classroom in a practical, real-time setting.

You may choose to work with tour operators, airlines, airports, destination management companies, or agencies that specialise in public sector tourism planning and development.

You'll also be qualified for work in tourism marketing agencies, and for developers of niche tourism products such as ecotourism. Alternatively, with entrepreneurship being studied in your final year, you may choose to develop your own small tourism venture.

How will you help me prepare for my future?

Throughout your time with us we'll support you on the route to your chosen career. We'll help you to develop crucial skills, encouraging you to become enterprising, employable and good leaders.
