Course Description

Tourism is an increasingly important part of our lives, and the tourism industry is one of the few global industries forecast to grow in the long term. Managing this rapidly growing industry to meet visitors' demands in a sustainable way is exciting and challenging. This long-established course will give you the knowledge, analytical abilities and skills you need to make a career as a tourism professional.

You will study at the heart of London, one of the world's leading tourism destinations. Site visits, integrated in the course modules, will allow you to explore a wide variety of aspects of the dynamic tourism industry.

Annual student feedback for the course is very positive, with teaching, staff contract and course content receiving particular praise. This reflects the tourism team's efforts to provide a valuable and effective course as well as a supportive, friendly and stimulating environment for your studies.
Members of the teaching team have published academic texts used by students of tourism at many UK universities.  You will benefit from access to these texts – and the insights of these authors.  Furthermore, staff teaching on the course are active researchers, and their teaching is informed by both their own research and their engagement with industry.  

You will learn about the nature and characteristics of tourism and explore how it can be marketed, managed and planned, examining cases from around the world. Your management and entrepreneurial skills will be developed to assist you in finding employment in many different parts of this dynamic and growing industry.

A range of option modules allows you to focus on your particular interests, and to explore the links between the different aspects of tourism. A dissertation gives you the chance to applying your learning to develop in-depth, specialist knowledge of a tourism topic of your choice.
