Course summary

About the course

The international tourism industry continues to grow and flourish increasing the need for senior planners and managers with the skills to tackle a broad range of global management issues.

From heritage, cultural, social, environmental and political matters, to questions concerning strategic management and sustainable development, this course will provide you with a critical overview of the subject.

You will gain the knowledge and skills to understand the role of critical evaluation techniques and decision-making strategies necessary to establish yourself and thrive in a senior management role.

There are six entry points through the year. This allows you to start when it is most suitable.

How will I be assessed?

A number of different assessment methods will contribute to your development and will enhance your employability. We consider it essential that comprehensive feedback is provided in due time so it is integrated in your learning process. When group work is required, the marks given will be individual following the University of Bedfordshire's regulatory scheme. The intensive character of this courses delivery is consistent with the need for graduates to accumulate knowledge fast and express the outcome of this process in a way that is meaningful and comprehensive. Welcome and induction activities will be followed immediately by a week of intensive direct contact time followed by your own contribution through individual learning, which will take you to your first assessment point. At the end of your six-week block, your final assessment will be due. You are required to submit the assessment identified for each unit of study. Details of the core learning outcomes, threshold standards, assessment criteria and M-Level criteria are identified in the Course Handbook and/or unit handbook. The assessment you complete will depend on the units you choose. As far as possible, assessment across units has been designed to give you experience of a wide range of assessment tools. There are two assessments across most units. The first assessments usually require you to carry out a presentation or submit a report at an early stage of the unit and carry a lower weighting than the final assessment. The second assessments are usually longer and involve elements such as further reflection, critical review of a body of literature, critical analysis of any data sought, reference to wide ranging policies, engagement with current debates, analysis of weaknesses and identification of solutions.
