Course content

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.

You will learn about the nature and characteristics of the tourism industry, and explore how it can be marketed, managed and planned, examining cases from around the world. 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 research a topic of your choice in depth.

This course is recognised by the Tourism Management Institute (TMI). Assessment and recognition by TMI means that students can be confident the course will provide them with knowledge, understanding, skills and experience which will fully prepare them for a career in tourism destination management.
