More about this course

Our Tourism and Travel Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is ideal if you’re looking to enter a managerial career in the tourism and travel industry.

During your foundation degree you will learn key business skills and increase your academic confidence. You’ll share this introductory year with students studying some of our other business-related degrees, allowing you to share perspectives and gain a broad knowledge of business and management.

As you progress into the second year of the course, you will study the same course content and get the same choice of modules as those who study our three-year Tourism and Travel Management BA course.

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.

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.

Assessment
