**Why study this course?**

Our Tourism and Travel Management (including foundation year) BA (Hons) degree is a four-year course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0).

It provides a gateway to a career in one of the world’s biggest service sectors and is the perfect start to your university education if you don’t meet the entry requirements to start our standard three-year degree programme.

The degree will offer you close links with tourism businesses and public organisations through membership of the Tourism Management Institute.

**More about the 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.

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.

Top job areas of graduates

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.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
