Our course is continually evolving and improving to take into account the latest challenges in the industry. You'll learn about cultural heritage, sustainable tourism and tourism-led regeneration as well as having the opportunity to examine niche tourism products.

Outside of the classroom, our students have access to Accelerator, which provides advice, support, networks, knowledge and resources to help you start your own business. Together with our lecturers’ wealth of experience you’ll be well-equipped for a career in tourism or travel.

The graduate job market is competitive and graduates with work experience are more likely to enter the desired career. In Year 2 or 3, you’ll be required to select a work-related learning module. Although we can’t guarantee you a work experience placement, we will advertise suitable positions and support you through the application process.

You'll graduate from our Tourism and Travel Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree with a full undergraduate qualification with the same title and award as students who studied the traditional three-year course.
