**Why study this course?**

Our Airline, Airport and Aviation Management (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) that has been designed with input from senior aviation managers.

It is the ideal start to university if you’re interested in studying airline, airport and aviation management at undergraduate level but you’re unable to meet the entry requirements or don't have the traditional qualifications required to start a standard degree.

**More about this course**

The foundation year on our four-year airline, airport and aviation management degree has been designed to allow you to acquire vital business skills and build your confidence as you start your degree.

It will focus on the general principles of business and help you develop effective communication, research and data analysis skills. It is also designed to be an introduction to academic life, preparing you for your subsequent years of study and allowing you to get to grips with various learning styles.

In the following three years of your degree you will focus more heavily on aviation, studying the same course content and having the same choice of modules as those who study our Airline, Airport and Aviation Management BSc (Hons) degree. Our teaching staff are well connected within the aviation industry, allowing you to learn from experts in your field of interest.

This course shares its foundation year with a number of our other foundation year degrees, allowing you to share ideas across a wide range of business disciplines.

If, following your foundation year, you decide that you’d like to specialise in a different business-related subject, there is flexibility to allow you to do this.

You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the traditional three-year course.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a wide group of smaller subjects that don't necessarily have that much in common - so bear this in mind when you look at any employment data. Most graduates took a hospitality, events management or tourism-related course, but there are a group of sports and leisure graduates in here as well who do different things. Events management was the most common job for graduates from this group of subjects, and so it’s no surprise that graduates from specialist events management courses did better last year than many of the other graduates under this subject umbrella - but all did about as well as graduates on average or a little better. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

Top job areas of graduates

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This subject includes degrees in urban studies and housing as well as planning qualifications. Be a little careful when looking at the stats, as most jobs in planning, especially in town planning, go to Masters students in the subject — planning is a very popular Master's degree (and even then we don't actually have enough graduates to meet employer demand). So if you want a job in planning, expect to stay on at university after you have finished your first degree. First degree graduates in planning are more likely to start working in surveying than planning roles - although that is partly down to our serious shortage of surveyors. This all adds up to a subject that is in demand - but do keep a look out for work experience opportunities to make your good prospects even better.

What about your long term prospects?

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
