This is a top-up version of our Tourism and Travel Management BA degree. A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and is for those who have a foundation degree, Higher National Diploma or equivalent qualification, or those wishing to study the final degree of their degree in London.
This degree will bring you closer to a managerial career in the travel and tourism sector. You’ll investigate contemporary issues, including how to evaluate and mitigate risks, develop tourism marketing strategies and manage visitor attractions. You’ll benefit from close links with government and businesses via membership of the Tourism Management Institute, as well as insights from international projects by research centres such as the Association for Tourism and Leisure Education and Research (ATLAS).
The Tourism and Travel Travel Management (Top-up) degree offers an opportunity to enter a sector that provides unique opportunities to less developed countries. It is one of few global economic activities that helps promote and protect cultural heritage of local communities, enhances labour mobility, creates jobs and improves access to international markets.
This programme has been developed to answer the tourism and travel industry's demand for specialised managers and planners. It's constantly evolving to cover the most up-to-date issues and to prepare entrepreneurs for the challenging tourism business environment. You'll acquire knowledge in sustainable tourism management, cultural heritage and tourism-led regeneration. You'll also have the opportunity to explore niche tourism products, realise their potential and see how tourism relates to issues of global peace, justice, human rights and social inclusion.
The University is located in London, at the centre of the country’s booming tourism and travel industry. The teaching utilises our location with a series of case studies including World Travel Market's international trade fair. Our diverse community is also reflected in our teaching and we use a range of worldwide case studies based on students' own experiences and culture.
We have previously organised and hosted the annual Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport student conference, with speakers including Hugh Sumner, former Director of Transport at the Olympic Delivery Agency.
Assessments include simulation of professional practice and consultancy, independent and group research for a field trip and survey-based projects, portfolios, posters and videos, along with more traditional essays, reports, case studies, presentations, tests and a final dissertation.
