This course is designed to meet the needs of industry by producing graduates equipped with the operational and management skills needed to succeed in the airline and airport industry. You will be taught by staff who have extensive experience of airport operations, cabin crew operations and aviation organisation management. The first year of study concentrates primarily on developing the fundamental skills and knowledge required in airline and airport organisations. The second year builds on this underpinning knowledge to examine relevant theory and applies this in a management perspective. You will benefit from site visits to national and international airports as well as guest speakers from a range of airlines. You will be encouraged to apply for student membership with a professional aerospace or management institution. You will complete a work placement via Newcastle International Airports’ Ambassador Scheme, which may lead to summer seasonal positions within security or ground handling capacities and customer service facing roles at the airport.

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?
